“These engines are just what industrial OEMs are looking for-compact, cost-effective power solutions,” said Eric Cohen, Chief Operating Officer of PSI. “Our new systems provide greater outputs in smaller packages at a lower cost per kilowatt.”
PSI is displaying four industrial engines-the .97-liter, 3.0-liter, 5.7-liter and 8.8-liter-as well as four engines from the PSI Heavy-Duty line: the 11.1-liter, 14.6-liter, 18.3-liter and 21.9-liter. The new .97-liter, 5.7-liter and 8.8-liter engines are notable for providing unprecedented power for their respective displacements.
The all-new .97-liter turbo is a 4-cylinder, electronic fuel-injected gas engine that produces nearly 25% more power and torque than the naturally aspirated version reaching 25 kWe. PSI introduced the .97-liter turbo at the 2012 Golf Industry Show powering John Deere’s Gator Utility Vehicles. The new emission certified stationary model featured at POWER-GEN provides diesel-level power, performance, durability, and reduced noise, vibration and harshness through features including a closed-loop port-injected EFI, a cross-flow cylinder head to optimize fuel combustion, high silicon content pistons, sintered powder-metal exhaust, valve seat inserts and a poly V-belt harmonic balancer.
The all-new 5.7-liter turbo/gearbox/charge air-cooled engine is capable of producing 130 kWe of power. The system offers OEMs a durable, cost-effective alternative to the Ford 6.8-liter engine.
PSI’s big block 8.8-liter engine, first introduced in 2011, is now available in four new options capable of producing 100-180 kWe: naturally aspirated, turbo-charged, and two charge air-cooled versions. The newly designed and engineered engine offers 20% across-the-board improvements in power and 15% better fuel-efficiency than its predecessor, the General Motors 8.1L.
The PSI Heavy-Duty line features heavy-duty engines with expanded outputs spanning from 80 kWe to 430 kWe. The fuel-flexible Heavy-Duty engines range includes 8.1-liter to 21.9-liter blocks designed to deliver performance and reliability for demanding applications.
PSI is showing its expanded engine lineup in booth number 2006 at the 2012 POWER-GEN International Trade Show, taking place December 11-13 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
Power Solutions International (PSI) is a leading global provider of cleantech power solutions. The company designs and manufactures engine assemblies for the industrial and on-road sectors and offers fuel-flexible, low-emission engines ranging from .97 liters to 22 liters of displacement. PSI’s power systems are used worldwide in trucks and buses, power generators, forklifts, aerial lifts, and industrial sweepers, as well as in equipment used for oil and gas extraction, aircraft ground support, agriculture, and construction.
