This week, John Deere Power Systems is in Paris for INTERMAT 2012. Held every three years since 1988, INTERMAT (the International Exhibition for Equipment and Techniques for Construction and Materials Industries) is one of of the industry’s biggest international events.

At this year’s show, John Deere revealed its planned building-block approach to meet the upcoming challenge of Final Tier 4/Stage IV regulations. The Integrated Emissions Control system is a solution that optimizes engine performance, operating efficiency and reliability.

This excerpt was originally posted on the John Deere, Straightforward Blog April 12, 2012. You can view the original post here.

We are excited to welcome four new models from our K-Series crawler dozer line to John Deere’s growing family of machines certified to U.S. EPA Interim Tier 4 (IT4) emissions requirements. A John Deere PowerTech 6.8L (700K, 750K) or 4.5L (550K, 650K) IT4 diesel engine provides an increase in horsepower and overall tractor weight, providing more productive machines.

Both engines meet 2012 EPA emissions requirements by utilizing the field-proven technology of cooled EGRwith exhaust filters. The engine’s diesel particulate filters are cleaned automatically during routine operation, eliminating the need to idle down for maintenance and increasing overall machine productivity.  In addition, filter access is easy, should it need servicing.

EPA Interim Tier 4 and EU Stage III B emissions standards for diesel engines between 56 kW (75 hp) and 130 kW (174 hp) became effective the first week of 2012, raising questions among contractors about the design, operability and cost impact of compact equipment falling within this power range. John Deere’s team of engineers has addressed these concerns while providing the smooth operability and efficiency customers come to expect from their compact equipment.

Here on the Emissions Hub blog we talk mainly about the off-highway construction industry when it comes to emissions requirements.  It is important to recognize that John Deere diesel engines play a role in several other industries, providing the right technology to get the job done, no matter what that job may entail.  Although emission standards are becoming increasingly stringent across the board, standards vary depending on industry sector (for example, off-road construction versus marine). As the off-highway industry faces challenges in the coming years, it will be important to see how a variety of industries are meeting the challenge at different stages of standards implementation.

Last April we sat down for an interview with Dale Conway, Vice President of Engineering at Thompson Pump, for our OEM Spotlight series. This month, Dale provides us with a look at one of Thompson Pump’s latest products, the 18-inch Dry-Priming Centrifugal Pump that utilizes a John Deere Interim Tier 4 Engine.

The Pump incorporates Thompson’s oil-less vacuum technology, which enables the pump to match the reduced emissions of the engine while providing improved efficiency. Watch the video below to see how Thompson Pump is utilizing John Deere IT4 Engines in their latest equipment.

Another year, another successful World of Concrete trade-show at the Las Vegas Convention Center and the John Deere Emissions Hub team was listening from the floor and on the feeds.

But even before the big show launched, World of Concrete had already been destined to be the largest general construction show stateside this year, and while the name suggests it is an all concrete focused show, it is actually much broader. With 1,200 exhibiting companies, 50,000 registered attendees and over 100 educational sessions, WOC had been set from the beginning to be a great show.

The John Deere Emissions Hub turns 1-year old today, and what a year it’s been. We started this blog in January 2011 after many of our customers started telling us that they were concerned about how new emissions requirements would affect their business. We decided to launch a comprehensive online resource, the John Deere Emissions Hub, to provide useful and accurate information on topics such as the stringent Interim Tier 4 and Final Tier 4 off-highway emission standards, the postponement of changes to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), along with all of the new technological innovations being used to meet the standards and other local emissions requirements.
