Case IH unveiled new sprayers and other equipment this week with an eye toward offering customers additional horsepower, efficiency and technology benefits.

At a media event Wednesday in Denver, the Racine, Wis.-based major released 18 new models that use Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology alone to meet strict Tier 4 Final emissions standards.

All of the equipment should be available to dealers for ordering.

"Achieving the Tier 4 final standard was a colossal challenge, but Case IH has had fewer challenges than most because we determined early on that our patented SCR solution was the right choice and haven't had to change direction," says Kyle Russell, Case IH's senior director of marketing. "We've been able to meet the standard while still developing class-leading horsepower and efficiency in multiple equipment lines."

The Case IH FPT SCR-only solution treats the exhaust flow downstream, and after the combustion process from the engine, so the engine can generate maximum power without adding any complexity or compromising efficiency. There are no additional emissions systems or operational changes from Case IH Tier Interim to Tier 4 Final equipment.

The company told ag media this week that eight patents allowed Case IH's Tier 4 Final system to deliver 95% NOx conversion efficiency, while competitive SCR systems provide only 80-85% efficiency and require a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and/or exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). Many EGR engines also require shortened or additional maintenance intervals for oil changes and filter regeneration.

The company says its next-generation FPT engines continues to offer the industry's longest oil-change intervals at 600 hours, minimal service requirements and more reliability due to lower exposure to soot and carbon that is put back into the engine.

"When you go to Tier 4 Final standards, there's not a lot of benefit to the producer," Walker says. "We will be able to hold on to fuel efficiency. Being able to reach that last mandate of government emission standards won't be major benefit to the farmer, but it will be a cost."

Here's a roundup of the new products Case IH unveiled this week with Tier 4 Final technology, and several other new equipment lines from the manufacturer. Click on the links to read news releases with additional details. 

Patriot Sprayers Offer More Horsepower, Better Spray Control

The new Case IH Patriot 3240 and 3340 sprayers offer more horsepower and new options for spray control.

One new option gives operators improved spray accuracy across the field. The new AIM Command PRO spray system provides individual nozzle control, allowing nozzles to turn on and off individually rather than by entire boom sections.

This technology minimizes overspray and overlaps, preventing over application and the resulting crop damage.
