The 2011 Institution of Agricultural Engineers Conference, to be held on 10 May, will focus on fothcoming off-road diesel engine emissions legislation. It will also cover the impact of Stage IIIB (Interim tier 4) and Stage IV (Final tier 4) on engine manufacturers, fuel and oil suppliers, equipment manufacturers, servicing dealers and end users

 

Taking place at Cranfield University, Bedford, the conference is aimed at anyone wanting to understand more about the installation of engines into whole machines, transmission integration, filtration issues (air and fuel), fuel supply and storage.

The conference will feature speakers from across the industry and will cover the impact this legislation will have on:

• Future trends in diesel engine design

• Users (fuel, lubricant and fuel systems, fuel specification (low sulphur for off-road use) and storage issues)

• Installers (design installation and transmission matching issues)

• Manufacturers (sales and after-market issues)

Topics will include:

• Future trends in diesel engine design

• SCR to achieve Tier 4 compliance

• The EGR route

• Fuels and lubricants – the impact for Tier 4 off-highway engines

• The Challenge of integrating transmissions to achieve improved energy efficiency and reduced levels of emissions for Tier 4 compliance.

Plus speakers from: Rexroth Bosch, Sauer-Danfoss and Parker-Racor on topics ranging from “Instrumentation and control of the drive chain” to “Fuel and air filtration challenges for Tier 4 compliance”

The event starts at 9.45am and tickets cost £95
