MINExpo 2012 Will be North American Debut of Cummins’ Smallest and Largest Engines
The Cummins booth at MINExpo 2012 will display what the company calls “the most extensive smallest-to-largest range the company has ever put on display.”
With the North American debut for both the 2.8-liter, 4-cylinder QSF2.8 and the 95-liter, 16-cylinder QSK95 at MINExpo, the range of engines on display will encompass from 49 horespower all the way up to 4,000 HP.
MINExpo 2012 runs from Sept. 24 through the 26 in Las Vegas and the Cummins booth will also feature the QSK60 and QSK78 engines, known well thoughout the mining industry.
Cummins says the new QSK95 reaches mining power output previously available only from 20-cylinder engines. The company says the engine’s high power density is made possible with a hardened power cylinder it claims features “the strongest single-piece, forged-steel piston available.”
The QSK95, like the rest of the QSK engine family, will meet the EPA Tier 4 final emissions standards with a combination of clean in-cylinder combustion and a new Selective Catalitic Reduction clean exhaust system.
The company’s MINExpo 2012 display will be the first time Cummins places its SCR system for diesel engines over 751 HP on display as well.
