Kohler's integrated suite of engine systems

KOHLER Flex™

KOHLER'S INTEGRATED SUITE OF ENGINE SYSTEMS

KOHLER FIex™ is the range of solutions for emission control that Kohler has designed to enable each configuration of the KDI platform to comply with all emissions standards and regulations, worldwide.

At the heart of KOHLER FIex™ there is the clean combustion of KDI engines that enables the adoption of a compact, state-of-the-art DPF to meet the Stage V emission standard. KOHLER FIex™ combines the clean in-cylinder combustion of KDI engines, made possible by high-pressure common rail (2000bar), 4 valves head, turbocharger and cooled-EGR, and the ultra-compact aftertreatment devices (DOC, DPF and SCR) to comply with all emission requirements.

SMART AND COMPACT
EMISSIONS MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR)

The EGR system recirculates the exhaust gas back into the air intake, reducing nitrogen oxide emissions.

Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)

The DPF is a soot trap, which physically captures diesel particulate matter and prevents their release into the atmosphere.

Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)

The DOC reacts with exhaust gases to reduce carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and some particulate matter.

Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR)

The SCR System sets off a chemical reaction that converts nitrous oxide into nitrogen, water and tiny amounts of carbon dioxide.

UNSTOPPABLE

The platform of KDI engines is unstoppable: Kohler presents a new development of its platform of diesel engines, designed to meet the requirements of a market that demands more application flexibility and compliance with the various emissions limits, along with performance and productivity.

With the Stage V development, Kohler adds another model to the line-up. KDI engines are characterized by extremely clean combustion and now, with the introduction of the DPF, we take full advantage of the efficiency of the combustion to deliver to our customers, the most advanced technology and the most compact aftertreatment system in the market. We are especially proud of the DPF smart regeneration strategy that we developed through extensive use of advanced simulation tools and testing. Kohler's exclusive regeneration strategy is completely transparent to the end users in every application and duty cycle.
