SIXTEEN CYLINDER DIESEL IDLES ON EIGHT

Engineers at Cummins Engine Co. have developed a new sixteen cylinder turbocharged and after-cooled diesel engine which develops 1190 bkW (1600 bhp). The KTA-3067 has a displacement of 50 liters with a 159 mm bore and stroke. This engine shares many commonalities with the K-family V-12 engines, but it contains a patented fuel control valve which shuts off eight of the sixteen cylinders during warmup and light load-low speed operating conditions to reduce white smoke.
