Tier 4 solutions
Justin Sample, Cummins, explains solutions used by engine and tractor manufacturers to meet EPA standards.
Reinventing the engine
The two main solutions for cutting off-road diesel engine emissions are selective catalytic reduction (SRC) and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). Here is how each system works and what it will add to the price of a tractor.
John Deere’s Tier 4 engine will use a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC)/diesel particulate filter (DPF) to reduce particulates and an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system to reduce the oxides of nitrogen.
