CATERPILLAR in 2010

Posted by admin 0 Comment

Power RangeDiesel or Heavy Fuel: 8 to 16 000 kW, Gaseous Fuel: 41 to 6729 kW

A Year of Expansion 2010 brought many additions to Cat erpillar Inc., including rail, power generation and emission systems acquisitions. Notably, Caterpillar’s subsidiary Progress Rail purchased EMD; the company recently announced its acquisition of Germany-based MWM; and earlier this year, Cat acquired CleanAIR Systems, Santa Fe, New Mexico, U.S.A., expanding its portfolio of emission reduction technology and systems.

Additional C18 Power Range Caterpillar Marine Power Systems has introduced a 685 kW rating for its C18 ACERT marine diesel engine. The new rating joins the 1015 and 1150 kW ratings already available on the inline sixcylinder, four-stroke, 18.1 L C18. The engine is electronically governed, turbocharged and aftercooled. The additional power rating is expected to increase fuel efficiency upward of 25%, said Caterpillar. It is compliant with IMO, EPA Tier 2 and EU 94/25/EC Recreational Craft Directive emission regulations.

Marine Emissions
The company has announced additions to its marine emissions line. A retrofit kit is available globally for the Cat 3500 marine engines. The kit upgrades the mechanical unit injector transforming the engine from mechanical to electronic and bringing the engine to EPA regulated levels.

Caterpillar Motoren, Kiel, Germany, the manufacturing arm of Caterpillar that manufactures MaK engines, has introduced IMO 2 compliant M 20 C medium-speed diesel engines for marine applications. IMO Tier 2 will go into effect Jan. 1, 2011. The engine is available in six- and eight-cylinder configurations with an output range of 1020 to 1520 kW at 900 to 1000 r/min.

The design changes for emission compliance included changes to the injector pump, combustion inlet, exhaust outlet and gas piping. Retrofit kits are also available for the six- and eight-cylinder M 20 C engines.
