FPT Industrial leads the path to sustainable agriculture at World Ag Expo and presents the “Behind Food” special projectEngineering360 News Desk | February 14, 2022
FPT Industrial presented a new special project called “Behind Food” along with its latest engines at the World Ag Expo 2022, the world’s largest agricultural exhibition, held in Tulare, California, from February 8 to 10.
The project “Behind Food” is an initiative of FPT Industrial to promote sustainable agriculture, showing how innovative powertrain technologies are part of a chain that takes high-quality, healthy products from the field to the table. In collaboration with Eataly, the world’s largest artisanal Italian food and beverage marketplace, FPT Industrial debuted the “Behind Food” cooking show, taking viewers through a tasting journey from the Californian farms of Sohnrey Family Foods, Trattore Farms and Hilmar Jerseys to the kitchen of Eataly’s headquarters in Turin, Italy. All farms involved in the project are customers of New Holland Agriculture, which is the other key partner in this chapter “Behind Food.”
FPT Industrial showcased six of its most recent powertrain technologies at World Ag Expo, displaying solutions for different kinds of applications focused on the North American market.
The newest engine of the brand, the F28 Tier 4 Final, is a new modular and multi-fuel solution specifically designed for light and compact agriculture machines. Whether fueled by diesel or natural gas, it delivers a performance of a 3.4-liter engine in a 2-liter package.
Three other compact and flexible solutions for light operations were displayed at FPT Industrial’s booth. The F34 Tier 4 Final has a maximum power of 90 kW and torque up to 490 Nm, delivering high performance in a compact layout. It also features a long-lasting DPF-free aftertreatment system and one-side serviceability that speeds up maintenance operations. The F34 Tier 4 Final Power Pack version comes with all components (e.g. air filter, cooling pack, ATS) pre-assembled in one package, providing power up to 55 kW and torque up to 320 Nm. The third highly compact solution at the show was the F36 Tier 4 Final, with the best-in-class power and torque density — up to 105 kW and 600 Nm.
For heavy-duty operations that require top performance, FPT Industrial exhibited the Cursor 9 Tier 4 Final Power Pack, which delivers maximum power of 308 kW and torque up to 1800 Nm. Because it is a ready-to-use power unit, it simplifies emission compliance for customers. In addition, it ensures low fuel consumption and low running costs thanks to exhaust gas recirculation-free combustion, long service interval and for-life ATS.
Lastly, for robustness and durability even in the most severe conditions, the N67 Tier 3 IPU is the right choice. Available in both mechanical and electronic configurations, it delivers power up to 175 kW, torque up to 1020 Nm, and high fuel efficiency.
