OVERVIEW

NOTES

With a focus on power, performance and innovation, Progress Rail, through its iconic EMD® brand, has been a premier provider of diesel-electric locomotive technology for nearly 100 years. EMD® locomotives comprise a majority of the active worldwide fleet, leading the company to develop a variety of unique OEM aftermarket (replacement) parts. An example of Progress Rail’s ongoing product support are the new EconoLife Power Assemblies.

This economical power assembly solution is intended for older locomotives, used in switch duty service, that are equipped with EMD® 645E roots-blown or 645E3 turbocharged engines. In such light-duty applications, where maintenance costs are often the primary concern, EconoLife power assemblies are an ideal option versus standard and premium components.

EconoLife power assemblies are offered in standard fork, blade, and partial pack configurations.

Engine Compression Carrier Pin  
Fork 645E 16:01 Straight
Blade 645E 16:01 Straight
Partial 645E 16:01 Straight
Fork 645E 14.5:1 Rocking
Blade 645E 14.5:1 Rocking
Partial 645E 14.5:1 Rocking
Fork 6.45E+05 14.5:1 Straight
Blade 6.45E+05 14.5:1 Straight
Partial 6.45E+05 14.5:1 Straight

 

EconoLife power assemblies are not emissions certified and can ONLY be used on engines not currently labeled as EPA Tier 0 or Tier 0+ compliant. Many locomotives equipped with EMD® 645E or 645E3 engines are exempt from those emissions requirements as a result of the locomotive age or other EPA criteria.

EconoLife 645E power assemblies with a 14.5:1 compression ratio and rocking pin configuration may be used as an alternative to 645E3 power assemblies with a 14.5:1 compression ratio and straight pin configuration

EconoLife power assemblies are primarily intended for running repair of individual failures. In certain cases, multiple power assemblies may be replaced on non-exempt engines.


PROGRESS RAIL FUEL INJECTORS

Progress Rail OEM fuel injectors are fully remanufactured to precise internal specifications vs. non-OEM retrofits. Progress Rail OEM injectors ensure optimal fuel economy and emissions performance over their full useful life and avoid operating penalties and expense of non-compliance.

EMISSIONS KITS FOR EMD® LOCOMOTIVES

Progress Rail has provided emissions solutions for its engines for over 25 years and continues to lead the industry in emissions compliance. One of the EPA’s guiding principles for the 40 CFR Part 1033 rule was to achieve sizeable reductions in emissions as early as possible. EMD® has met this challenge. Its skilled emissions research team has used extensive iterative testing to develop the most advanced emission solutions for locomotive applications using EMD® 645 and 710 engines.

Emissions Kits for 645 and 710 Engines

Emissions Solution Benefits

  • OEM engineered, designed, and tested upgrades, which provide particulate matter and NOx reductions.
  • Cuts lube oil consumption significantly.
  • Fuel consumption is reduced or maintained at previous levels.
  • Application of the kits per EMD® Maintenance Instructions achieves full compliance with EPA regulations per 40 CFR Part 1033.

 

System Integration

Progress Rail’s complete OEM system knowledge allows for the most reliable and fuel-efficient emission kits. Meeting emissions is not a piece-part activity but a finely-tuned balance between emissions compliance and fuel efficiency. Reverse engineered parts lack the proven reliability, systems integration, and support that only the OEM can provide.

 

Emissions Kit Contents

  • EMD® emissions kits include the following components:
  • UL Power Assemblies
  • OEM Emission Specification Fuel Injectors
  • Aftercoolers and Plumbing (as needed)
  • Software Upgrade (as required)
  • Oil Separator and Fittings (as needed)
  • Engine Emission Label
  • Locomotive Emission Label
  • Installation Instructions
  • Kit Registration Card

 

EPA Compliance

EPA 40 CFR Part 1033 requires locomotive engines, including all EMD® models originally manufactured in 1973 or later, to meet strict particulate matter and NOx standards when overhauled. Installing an EPA certified EMD® emissions kit ensures full regulatory compliance with Part 1033 requirements.
