Detroit Diesel’s engine lineup of the
DD13, DD15 and DD16 engines are
all equipped with BlueTec SCR emissions technology to meet EPA 2010
standards at the tailpipe. Over 25,000 of
these engines are operating in on-highway and vocational commercial truck
applications, Detroit Diesel said.
The engines, combined with Blue Tec,
are delivering up to 5% better fuel
economy compared to their 2007 predecessors, Detroit Diesel said. The 5%
increase is due to the decrease in EGR levels, which provides approximately 1.5%
of the improvement and extended regeneration intervals (from 325 to 2500 miles)
providing the additional 3.5% improvement.
Blue Tec technology combines an engine equipped with EGR, EPA ’07 emissions technology and SCR to meet the 2010 emissions standards at the tailpipe.
BlueTec technology is packaged with the proprietary 1-Box emissions system,
which combines the DOC, DPF and SCR catalyst into one module.
All three engines share other technologies as well, including the electronically
controlled amplified common rail fuel system (ACRS), a fuel delivery system that
works in unison with Detroit Diesel’s DDEC 10 engine management system to
deliver the exact amount of fuel needed.
The “amplified” means the highest fuel pressure is generated within the injectors — leading to reduced pressure throughout the rest of the system and greater
component reliability, Detroit Diesel said. The engines also feature an integrated
Jake Brake, which is standard and provides users with three modes of engine
All Detroit Diesel engines offer oil and fuel filter change intervals at 50,000
miles for long-haul applications. These Detroit Diesel engines were also
designed with the cartridge-style filters (oil, coolant and fuel) positioned above
