Mahindra Meets Tier 4a with High Tech Common Rail Injection System

Smart injectors and a diesel oxidation catalyst system cut particulate matter and NOx.

Published on: Sep 5, 2012

Mahindra rolled out its above 75 horsepower Tier 4a engine recently for use in its 8560 models coming off the assembly line in November. Company officials say their mCRD engines will be  available in a full line of models in 2013.

The mCRD engine features a high-pressure injections system with multiple injection pulses that reduce NOx and particulate matter in the exhaust stream. Downstream from the engine a diesel oxidation catalyst after treatment system -- that needs no regeneration -- is on hand to further clean the exhaust.

In addition, the engine is designed with a high-efficiency positive crankcase ventilation system to capture and clean gasses from the combustion chamber before releasing them into the atmosphere.

Tier 4a emission compliance for Mahindra starts this fall with the 8560 models which include a 2WD, 4WD and 4WD-with-shuttle cab tractors. The technology will be used on a full line of Mahindras in 2013.

The initial offering of mCRD power comes this November with the production of Mahindra's full-size utility cabbed 8560 model in 2WD, 4WD and 4WD-with-shuttle. That engine is rated at 83 hp.
