FPT INDUSTRIAL PRESENTS ITS CURSOR 13 NATURAL GAS ENGINE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR BUSES AT IAA 2018 EXHIBITION IN HANNOVER
Last year, FPT Industrial unveiled the most powerful 100% Natural Gas engine on the market: the Cursor 13 Natural Gas. After being the first engine to be designed especially for long-haul trucks, the Cursor 13 Natural Gas is now at IAA 2018, in Hannover (Hall 16, Booth A42). FPT Industrial presents the Cursor 13 NG now also available for coach applications.
As well as the other FPT Industrial NG engines, the Cursor 13 NG uses stoichiometric combustion to generate its power. FPT Industrial has been using this technology since 1995 in order to comply with the most stringent emission limits with a simple and easy-to-install three way catalyst with no-EGR, no-SCR and no-DPF.
All this is cmobined with great benefits in terms of sustainability, both for the environment and for customers. There is a 98% PM reduction and a 48% reduction in NOx, compared to Euro VI compliant Diesel engines. The noise pollution is also lower thanks to the smoother and quieter engine combustion cycle.
Furthermore, the EGR-free combustion, the multipoint fuel injectors and the fuel rails grant a class leading fuel consumption: compared to Diesel, the fuel cost savings is up to 40%. Moreover, the Nickel-Resist cast-iron exhaust manifold, the water cooled wastegate turbocharger and the Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) cylinder head enable the Cursor 13 NG to achieve high reliability standards, both in terms of mechanical and thermal stress.
As for compactness, FPT Industrial lean technology – requiring no-adoption of AdBlue – delivers a lighter and more compact solution, allowing optimization of the bus payload and space availability. This feature enables larger fuel tanks to be mounted, thereby extending the mission range.
Finally, this engine is protected by two patents, (patent protections are still in progress): the first is FPT Industrial proprietary knock control that makes it possible to increase the performance, enables the widest fuel compatibility, and protects engine and three-way catalyst from misfiring. The second is FPT Industrial’s proprietary reactive air-flow control management system, a new stoichiometric ratio control logic that is applied during gearshifts. This ensures a continuous torque delivery when coupled with AMT gearshifting, which enables maximized performance and the fastest gearshift.
