100 years with industrial engines from Scania
In January 2006, emission legislations Stage IIIA and Tier 3 come into force. Scania is prepared to meet these standards with a highly efficient modern engine range.
Scania is constantly developing engines and technologies to meet different emission legislations for trucks, buses and industrial and marine engines around the world. The present challenge for industrial engines is to meet the European Stage IIIA and the U.S. Tier 3 regulations which are valid as from January 2006.
“With our customers demand for compact engines in mind, we decided at an early stage to focus on further improving the combustion process, instead of any after treatment system,” declares Mr Yngve Skog, Sales Manager at Scania Industrial & Marine Engines.
A major advantage in the development was Scania’s modular engine range. The fact that several engines share the same components such as cylinder heads, pistons, camshafts, unit injectors etc., made it possible to concentrate the efforts to a limited number of components and refine them to a great extent.
“We realised that we could reach the desired emission levels with minimum complexity. We do not need to use EGR or an after-treatment system such as SCR. Instead, we focused on the source, that is the combustion process.”
The engineers equation was that the more optimised the combustion, the lower the emissions. The solution turned out to be a revised combustion chamber, a refined angle of the unit injectors and an improved camshaft.
Today, two Scania engine families comply with the Stage IIIA/Tier 3 standards. It is the new 9-litre engine with 5 cylinders and the 12-litre engine with 6 cylinders.
“Besides a new combustion chamber, etc., these engines are also equipped with Scania’s own Engine Management System,” Mr Skog explains. “This electronic management system makes it possible, for example, to ensure optimum combustion.”
Scania EMS monitors and processes thousands of pieces of vital data every second and evaluates the information to adjust injection timing and the amount of fuel in-jected to ensure optimum combustion and fuel consumption in relation to operating conditions. It also makes it possible to program each individual engine to meet the customer’s specific demands for engine revs and workload.
