One engine, many advantages

It is hard to think of an invention that has had a greater impact on the contemporary world than the internal combustion engine. DEUTZ AG was a co-founder of this technology and been has been a driving force for innovation in its continuing success over the past 150 and more years.

When N.A. Otto & Cie., one of our present company’s predecessors, began series production of internal combustion engines almost 150 years ago, DEUTZ was signalling the start of global motorisation. The revolutionary four-stroke engine invented in 1876 by the pioneer and company founder, Nicolaus August Otto, still forms the basis of every combustion engine produced today. We have continued to demonstrate our engine construction skills ever since then. DEUTZ is renowned for the long service life and great reliability of its engines and for its tremendous expertise when advising on the installation of its engines in numerous different applications. Customers throughout the world particularly value the very compact design, the purpose-built exhaust aftertreatment system and the extremely low fuel consumption of our current engine portfolio. DEUTZ demonstrates its great technological expertise through its more than 800 sales and service partners in 130 countries throughout the world.

The entire breadth of the latest engine technology is displayed by the TCD 3.6, one of DEUTZ’s most recent developments. Like all DEUTZ TCD engines, it meets the current EU Stage IV and the US EPA Tier 41) emissions standards; re-designed, this water-cooled 4-cylinder in-line engine offers top-level performance combined with low fuel consumption, considerably below the market average. It also requires little servicing, thus ensuring high equipment availability. The improved technology is particularly effective in reducing overall running costs in the target application. Exhaust aftertreatment is customer-specific, based on a modular system; maintenance-free operation is possible by using an open system. To meet more stringent local emission requirements, a sealed diesel particulate filter (DPF) is available as an optional extra. DEUTZ always provides its customers with the technology that meets their specific requirements most effectively.

One step ahead

As part of its advanced exhaust aftertreatment development, DEUTZ has taken the bold step of introducing DPF technology early on into series production. By making this leap, we are already in a position to meet the EU Stage V emissions standard, expected to apply from 2019. On the basis of the EU Commission’s Stage V proposals,2) the TCD engines in the 2.9 to 7.8 litre cubic capacity range already meet the limits envisaged for 2019. Certification will be awarded as soon as possible. This offers DEUTZ customers decisive advantages in that the dimensions and design of the Stage V ready engines will remain the same when the changeover to the next emissions standard is made. Our customers will, consequently, enjoy long-term planning certainty; those who already operate DPF-equipped engines or who opt to buy them now will not need to carry out costly modifications to their applications. This gives our customers an assured technology and the option of implementing it at a time when it suits them. So that the market is clearly informed, DEUTZ is already applying a ‘Stage V ready’ seal to its engines. DEUTZ’s forward-looking strategy lays the foundation for continuous growth and, even after 150 years of engine construction, the Company continues to assert its leading role in the market.

So that the market is clearly informed, DEUTZ is already applying a ‘Stage V ready’ seal to its engines.

  • The DEUTZ TCD diesel-particulate-filter-equipped engines in the 2.9 to 7.8 litre cubic capacity range already meet the EU Stage V emissions standard, expected to apply from 2019.
  • This means that no expensive modifications to customers’ equipment are needed for them to meet the next emissions standard, because engine dimensions and design remain the same.
  • Because the Stage V ready engine systems are already in series production, customers will enjoy an assured technology which can be implemented at a time that suits them, plus long-term planning certainty.

1) The annual report mentions the Tier 4 Interim and Tier 4 Final emissions standards in various places. This refers to the US-regulations EPA Tier 4 Interim or EPA Tier 4 for diesel engines and the EU 97/68 III B or IV emission standards. The latter are not always mentioned for reasons of simplification.
