In this paper, applications of the platinum group metal (pgm)-based diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and diesel particulate fi lter (DPF) technologies for John Deere Interim Tier 4 non-road machines are presented. The same criteria apply to EU Stage III B regulations. The design and performance of engine aftertreatment systems are discussed in detail, and a few key performance characteristics of DOC-DPF systems are addressed. Signifi cant passive soot oxidation was observed. Model based controls

Active regenerations were transparent to operators. Tight DPF inlet temperature control and engine exhaust temperature management were found to be key for successful active DPF regenerations. The average fuel consumption for active regenerations was estimated by a simple energy balance model. The emission performance of a DOC-DPF system under normal and active regenerations is summarised, and ash accumulation and DPF pressure drop impact are analysed.
