New Engine From FPT
By Jack Burke08 March 2017
FPT Industrial unveiled the V20 diesel, its new top-of-the-range engine, at the ConExpo-Con/AGG trade show now taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
The new eight-cylinder FPT V20 is a 20 L diesel which offers a maximum power of up to 910 hp at 1800 rpm and a maximum torque of up to 3024 lb. ft. at 1500 rpm. It presents a new 2200 bar common rail injection system and electronic control unit (ECU)—the same adopted by FPT Industrial’s Cursor engine family—resulting in high system efficiency and low fluid consumption, the company said. At the same time, the lean V8 design with no exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), as well as the single-stage waste gas turbocharging and high resistance materials, guarantee system reliability, the company said.
FPT said the engine is suitable for both stationary and mobile applications, including power generation and railways.
The company said the V20 is also the most compact engine of its category, minimizing impact on vehicle dimensions and load capacity. The V20 permits up to 2% of savings on fuel compared to 12 cylinder engines averages thanks to lower friction and smaller displacement. Furthermore, the V20’s cross-banks exhaust system design releases optimal turbochargers fluid-dynamics for maximum efficiency.
The V20 adopts a one side serviceability layout: oil, fuel, and blow by filters are placed on the front side allowing an easy access position from the vehicle hood; all filters are remote-mountable on request to fit multiple applications layouts. At the same time, the single cylinder heads are designed and made in high-resistance nodular cast iron to guarantee higher performance with 220 bar PCP and easier maintenance operations.
The V20 adopts FPT Industrial’s HI-eSCR technology, proven by more than 25 year of experience and exclusive patented solutions. This regeneration and maintenance free ATS allows maximized vehicle uptime and low cost of ownership. The new turbocharger layout with turbines outlet junction allows to improve and to simplify the ATS piping and performance.
The engine has a bore and stroke of 145 X 152 mm.
