FPT Industrial powers CASE Construction Equipment’s new E-Series crawler excavatorsEngineering360 News Desk | March 07, 2022
FPT Industrial is strengthening its already solid position in the construction equipment sector, with the new E-Series crawler excavators from CASE Construction Equipment to be powered by the company’s Stage V NEF engines.
Building on a legacy of earth-moving innovation spanning 180 years, CASE now presents the E-Series crawler excavators – where “E” stands for “Excellence” – ranging from 13 metric-ton to 30 metric-ton models: CX130E, CX160E, CX180E, CX210E, CX240E, CX250E, CX300E. They all feature best-in-class benefits, offering customers greater controllability, reliability, operator comfort, efficiency, productivity and lower total cost of ownership, and are all powered by FPT Industrial’s NEF engines.
The choice of FPT Industrial NEF engines will guarantee an improved transient response ensuring high reliability, thus responding to the demanding needs of this specific application. The new E-Series incorporates more powerful and efficient Stage V engines, which offer greater displacement while meeting stringent emissions requirements. The 13 metric-ton to 18 metric ton models feature the N45, the 4.5-liter engine from the renowned NEF series, while the N67 (6.7-liter, six-cylinder version from the same engine family) powers the 21 metric-ton to 30 metric-ton models.
The NEF engines powering the new CASE E-Series ensure optimal combustion efficiency thanks to their exhaust gas recirculation-free architecture, while the FPT-patented HI-eSCR2 after-treatment system results in low running costs – this for-life system has no need for mechanical cleaning or replacement parts over its life cycle. High-capacity filters with clogging sensor deliver best-in-class service intervals of up to 1,000 hours, an outstanding improvement over previous solutions.
To allow the use of renewable fuels, NEF Stage V engines fitted on all E-Series models are compatible with EN15940-compliant fuels, such as the increasingly popular hydrogenated vegetable oils. FPT Industrial’s offering for the earthmoving sector features engine families with power outputs ranging from 40 kW to 670 kW, and displacements of 2.8 liters to 20 liters. They can be installed on a number of applications such as excavators, wheel loaders, skid steer loaders, graders, dozers, forklifts and cranes, among others.
With best-in-class performance in terms of power, torque, fuel efficiency and reliability, the NEF series stands out for its flexibility, with four (N45) and six (N67) cylinder configurations, as well as a wide range of options to customize the solution to the customers’ requirements. Both NEF engines and the HI-eSCR2 system for Stage V compliance are offered in a compact and lightweight package to facilitate installation on the vehicle, offering a wide range of after-treatment layouts for customized solutions.
