Tigercat FPT engines meet the stringent Tier 4 emission level requirements without the need for a variable geometry turbocharger, an EGR system, a higher capacity cooling system, an intake throttle body or a diesel particulate filter. No ‘regens’ are required.
In addition, the engine series offers proven reliability and lower long-term maintenance costs.
Most of the new emission equipment is found in the exhaust or after-treatment system. The key is the selective catalyst reduction (SCR) which converts the harmful components of the exhaust gas stream into water, nitrogen and carbon dioxide.
For the operator, other than refilling the diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tank, no action is required for the SCR system to function.
The biggest benefit for Tigercat machine owners is that the FPT engine series is fully supported by Tigercat, including all parts, service, warranty and technical support.
