Cummins Emission Solutions Showcasing Latest EcoFit Products at Mid-America Trucking Show08:00 EDT Wednesday, March 21, 2012 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Business Wire) -- Cummins Emission Solutions, a subsidiary of Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI), announced today that it will showcase its latest EcoFit™ technology at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville on March 22-24. As a leading aftertreatment system provider, the business serves both global on-highway commercial vehicle and off-highway equipment markets. Dedicated to helping its OEM customers reliably meet emissions regulations with best-in-class performance, Cummins Emission Solutions supports Cummins long-standing commitment to work toward a cleaner, healthier and safer environment while striving for emissions technology leadership. “With these new EcoFit offerings, I am excited to present our capabilities in the North American on-highway commercial vehicle market,” said Amy Adams, General Manager – Global On-Highway Business, Cummins Emission Solutions. “Our technology expertise and enhanced product portfolio have allowed us to develop and offer products such as the EcoFit Urea Dosing System, helping our OEM customers meet emissions regulations with a lower cost of ownership for the end-use customer.” EcoFit Aftertreatment SolutionsNew EcoFit aftertreatment solutions are being unveiled at MATS for the first time in the North American market. These solutions are designed to monitor, control and diagnose engine and aftertreatment systems in a way that reduces emissions while optimizing performance of the entire system. EcoFit products, available to all commercial vehicle engine manufacturers, will achieve a lower overall cost of ownership and allow customers to differentiate from the competition's through improved vehicle integration. EcoFit Urea Dosing SystemThe EcoFit Urea Dosing System (UDS) is being developed by Cummins Emission Solutions for use in light-, medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. Initially announced last November, the EcoFit UDS is designed to meet upcoming regulations in China, India and Russia. Work is under way to apply the system to upcoming emissions regulations in other regions so that Cummins Emission Solutions can continue to offer system integration opportunities unparalleled by existing Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system manufacturers. The EcoFit UDS delivers improved oxides of nitrogen (NOx) conversion efficiency, which offers the opportunity to tune engines for improved fuel economy or to reduce the size of a typical SCR system. The air-assisted system is also designed to minimize the risk of urea deposits, increasing the durability and reliability of the aftertreatment system. Offered as both tank-mount and chassis-mount, the system reduces vehicle integration efforts. EcoFit Hydrocarbon Dosing SystemCummins Emission Solutions will display its improved EcoFit Hydrocarbon Dosing System (HDS) at MATS. The EcoFit HDS enables thermal management for active Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) regeneration. Offering improved reliability, the system uses a new design that improves robustness by decreasing the chances of clogs and leaks. Without changing the external design, regeneration capabilities remain efficient by reducing flow loss over time at similar flow rates as those of today. EcoFit Catalyst TechnologyCummins Emission Solutions is continuously working on innovative catalyst technologies that make aftertreatment systems perform more efficiently and in smaller packages, offering improved fuel economy. One of the EcoFit Catalyst Technologies currently in development will be on display at MATS, illustrating the latest innovation in extruded SCR catalysts. Extruded SCR catalyst technology enables significant reduction in aftertreatment size, or the ability to increase NOx conversion rates within an SCR system.
