Cummins Emission Solutions announced that it is in the advanced development stages of a new urea dosing system, the EcoFit Urea Dosing System, designed to meet upcoming emission regulations in China, India, and Russia. Cummins Emission Solutions also announced the EcoFit brand, which will represent all Cummins Emission Solutions global aftertreatment products and solutions.

The EcoFit system is being developed for use in light-duty, midrange and heavy-duty commercial vehicles for easy integration into existing engine and aftertreatment systems while improving system robustness and fuel economy. The system will be manufactured at the Cummins Emission Solutions facility in Beijing and will be supported by a global technical organization, which has a significant presence in Beijing.

“With a local development and manufacturing presence, we are able to better understand our customers’ needs and customize our products to develop the most effective aftertreatment solutions in the market,” says Ivan Lok, general manager for Cummins Emission Solutions China. “In addition, customers are able to leverage the full power of the Cummins global service network wherever they need support.”

The system is a reductant delivery system that injects a solution of 32.5 percent urea and 67.5 diesel exhaust fluid into the exhaust stream to deliver improved nitrogen oxide 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 also is designed to minimize the risk of urea deposits, increasing the durability and reliability of the aftertreatment system.
