FPT Industrial Unveils Cursor 9L CNG Engine at Beijing Bus and Truck Show
FPT Industrial introduced the new Cursor 9 CNG natural gas engine at the Beijing Bus and Truck Show held May 23 to 26, 2016. Designed for the heavy haul, garbage collection, and city bus applications, the 6-cylinder stoichiometric combustion engine is based on the Cursor 9 diesel architecture and delivers comparable power and torque.
Unveiled under the slogan “Naturally Powerful,” the Cursor 9 CNG offers power up to 400 horsepower at 2,000 rpm and torque up to 1,700 Nm at 1,200 rpm. This is achieved while also having emissions lower than the Euro VI emissions standard. To comply with Euro VI standards, the Cursor 9 CNG does not need Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) or Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and instead relies on a simple three-way catalyst.
The Cursor 9 CNG, which replaces FPT’s 7.8L Cursor 8 CNG, boosts increased displacement, adds new multipoint fuel injectors, and a new fuel rail to allow for a higher flow rate. This, together with the modified cylinder head, characterized by intake ports with an optimized swirl angle, improves fuel consumption.
FPT Industrial has over 25 years of experience and has sold more than 29,000 CNG engines.
