Cat® SCR Technology
As the commercial marine industry adjusts their operations to meet EPA Tier 4 and IMO III emissions standards, Caterpillar Marine has introduced a solution built to maximize performance while meeting regulations. Caterpillar’s combination of a fuel-efficiency-
optimized engine and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) aftertreatment system is a solution that not only reduces NOx emissions, but can also lower a customer’s owning and operating costs in the process.
THE 1-2-3 OF SCR:
The dosing cabinet mixes the right dosage of compressed air [1A ] and urea [1B] drawn from the the urea tank and transfers it [2A]to the SCR module where it is injected in to the exhaust stream [2B]. In the SCR module  water evaporates and the urea is converted into NH3. When ammonia comes in contact with the SCR catalyst there is a reduction in NOx. The final output is carbon dioxide, nitrogen, water and oxygen.
