DPF Maintenance Best Practices for Buses

The duty cycles of school bus and transit bus fleets can require attentive maintenance of the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) in your aftertreatment system. Relatively high idle times, frequent stop and start events, lack of consistent engine speeds and light engine load all play a role in dictating maintenance intervals. This article explains what Cummins is doing to make this process easier and provides some best practices for DPF maintenance.

Repower of 1962 Double-Decker Bus Proves London Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) Capability

The London Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) arrives in April 2019, and will create a need for bus operators in London to move almost all of their fleet to the latest Euro VI compliance or face significant penalties. To demonstrate Cummins ability to meet this challenge through repowers of the existing bus fleet, we are now showcasing a Euro VI-repowered 1962 London Routemaster RM1005 double-decker bus that operates cleanly and efficiently while meeting the new standards – 50 years after it was originally manufactured.

Proud Partners – Cummins Badging On IC Bus CE and RE Series Buses

When it comes to school bus manufacturers, IC Bus immediately comes to mind for anyone in this industry. Their 2018 offerings include both the L9™-powered RE Series and the B6.7™-powered CE Series school buses. IC Bus listened closely to its customers – and heard loud and clear that the number one engine requirement for both school districts and independent school bus fleet operators is dependability. The kind of dependability that has made Cummins engines the standard in this market. That’s why IC Bus proudly installs Cummins engines under the hoods – and now a Cummins logo on the hoods – of these school buses for all to see.

Cummins Introduces “Stay Warm” Feature for Aftertreatment

Most school buses run a very different duty cycle than commercial diesel-powered trucks, with slower average speeds and a lot of stop-and-go operation. These slower speeds can prevent the passive regeneration process used to clean the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) in your aftertreatment system from taking place. Cummins has developed a solution that keeps DPF regenerations happening at slower speeds, preventing potential DPF clogging issues as well as the need for frequent active regenerations.

Cummins Announces Compatibility With Select Renewable Diesel Fuels

Whether you manage a public transit system or pupil transportation, there is always pressure to be sensitive to environmental concerns. To reduce the carbon footprint of transit and school buses, Cummins B6.7™ and L9™ engine platforms are now compatible with paraffinic renewable diesel fuels meeting the EN 15940 specification. This approval is for current model year engines and prior years as well. Paraffinic diesel fuels offer the potential to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40 percent to 90 percent over the total life cycle of the vehicle compared with conventional fossil-based diesel fuel, and can be used as a 100 percent substitute for standard EN 590 or American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D975 Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD).
