At the Farm Progress Show 2023 - one of the leading outdoor agricultural trade shows held in the USA at the end of August - FPT Industrial unveiled the new C16 TST two-stage turbocharger to power the top-of-the-line CASE IH Steiger 715 tractor. The partnership between the two companies will ensure an upgrade in the performance of the new Steiger 715 - explains FPT Industrial - with an increase, compared to the previous model (Steiger 645), of over 10% in terms of power and over 6% in terms of torque. The compactness and power-to-weight ratio are among the strengths of the C16 TST engine. The combustion chamber without EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) has been improved to allow an increase in maximum pressure up to 220 bar, while the intermediate cooling, together with the availability of high torque, allow prompt load response. Furthermore - says the Turin-based company - the second-generation Common Rail injection system up to 2,500 bar ensures high engine efficiency and low fluid consumption. Another plus of the C16 TST is the maintenance-free after-treatment system (ATS) without diesel particulate filter (DPF) which, combined with the 600-hour oil-change intervals, helps to reduce the machine's operating costs. Available in Quadtrac configurations the Steiger 715 was designed by CASE IH engineers for operators who need to work with large implements, on large plots of land.
