EcoFit™ Aftertreatment Solutions
EcoFitTM aftertreatment solutions are being designed to monitor, control, and diagnose engine and aftertreatment systems in a way that reduces emissions while optimizing performance of the entire engine and vehicle system. EcoFit™ products will achieve a lower overall cost of ownership, which will allow customers to differentiate from the competition through improved vehicle integration.
EcoFit™ Urea Dosing System Offers Better Fuel Economy, Smaller Package Size
The EcoFit™ Urea Dosing System is a reductant delivery system that injects a solution of 32.5% urea and 67.5% de-ionized water, also known as Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) or AdBlue™, into the exhaust stream. Offering system integration opportunities unparalleled by existing Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) systems, the EcoFit™ Urea Dosing System delivers improved Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) conversion efficiency which gives customers the opportunity to tune engines for improved fuel economy or to reduce the size of a typical SCR system. The system is also designed to minimize the risk of urea deposits, increasing the durability and reliability of the aftertreatment system.
