Bosch Emission Systems Launches Series Production for Exhaust-Gas Aftertreament, On- and Off-Road Applications

Bosch Emission Systems Launches Series Production for Exhaust-Gas Aftertreament, On- and Off-Road Ap

Bosch Emission Systems delivers full-range of products and services to meet increasingly strict emission requirements

(Farmington Hills, Mich.) - Bosch Emission Systems has begun series production for its exhaust-gas aftertreatment systems for on-highway and off-highway applications.

This new joint venture between Bosch, Deutz and Eberspächer, manufactures and supplies exhaust-gas aftertreatment systems, as well as engineering services for the design, optimization and calibration of such systems. Engineering services are available for engine and vehicle manufacturers worldwide and are focused on applying vehicle-specific solutions for exhaust-gas treatment to a number of applications, including mobile machinery, forklift trucks, stationary machinery, buses and local authority vehicles. The joint venture recently established a U.S. sales and application office in Farmington Hills, Mich.

“Many countries are beginning to enforce stricter exhaust gas limits for on- and non-road applications, and to date these limits have been met by improvements to the engine,” said Wolfgang Albrecht, general manager for Bosch Emission Systems. “We anticipate a substantial increase in demand for complex exhaust-gas aftertreatment systems that comply with these new emission standards because engine improvements alone can’t meet these new demands. Our team is able to design systems to suit any vehicle or machine.”

Full-range of Emission Products Help Meet Emissions Standards

The Bosch Emission System’s individual product range includes diesel particulate filters, diesel oxidation catalysts, SCR catalytic converters and the associated tubing, urea metering systems, sensors, AdBlue® tanks and all the additional components needed for a complete exhaust-gas treatment system.

The company’s complete emission system is capable of achieving very high conversion rates of nitrogen oxide through the addition of AdBlue® by the Bosch Denoxtronic, followed by an optimized reduction in the SCR catalytic converter. This precision process ensures there is always exactly the right preparation of agent for the operating values of the engine and SCR catalyst.

The particulate reduction requirements are carried out by the diesel particulate filter, while an optional burner system and the diesel oxidation catalytic converter ensure the necessary regeneration temperature to keep the system operating smoothly.

For engines larger than 560 kW, Bosch Emission Systems develops and manufactures individual solutions to meet customer requirements.

Bosch Emission Systems also has developed a standalone retrofit system for particulate matter and nitrogen oxide reduction, which is ready for pilot applications as a part of the complete verification process.

Bosch Emission Systems Exhibits at CONEXPO-CON/AGG

The Bosch Emission Systems group will be exhibiting at the CONEXPO-CON/AGG show at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas on March 22-26 in booth S-13115. The exposition is an international gathering held every three years, showcasing the latest equipment, products, services and technologies in the construction industries.

In the U.S., Canada and Mexico, the Bosch Group manufactures and markets automotive original equipment and aftermarket products, industrial drives and control technology, power tools, security and communication systems, packaging technology, thermotechnology, household appliances, solar energy and healthcare products. Having established a regional presence in 1906, Bosch employs over 20,000 associates in more than 70 locations, with reported sales of $7.3 billion in fiscal 2009.
