Efficient power and performance
VOLVO D8K ENGINE
Our own Volvo D8K engine is a top performer in any situation. When tight manoeuvring is required, its fast response can be relied upon every time. It’s also powerful. Torque-strong. And efficient, too.
Ready for alternative fuels
All power levels for D5K and D8K engines are certified for syntetic diesel (HVO). There is a variant of our D8K 320 engine will run on pure biodiesel (B100) – certified for Euro 6. It’s the perfect option if you want to help the environment, and enjoy the incentives available in your market.
Look at our curves
A wider, flatter torque curve. A better response at low RPM. And 1,200 Nm maximum torque. Compare our torque curves with the competition and you’ll see the difference. Climb in the cab and you’ll feel it – incredible acceleration, excellent low speed handling and first-class pulling power.
Cleaner, greener engines
Our Euro 6 engines are a huge leap towards cleaner transportation and reduced environmental impact. Power and fuel-efficiency are on par with Euro 5 models, but we’ve halved particulate emissions and reduced oxides of nitrogen by nearly 80%.
How it works
New engine components improve gas-flow and ensure the exhausts reach the after-treatment system at optimum temperature.
2. Seventh injector
A special diesel injector is used for heat management of the DOC and ensures the efficiency of the Diesel Particle Filter and good SCR functionality.
3. Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC)
The DOC produces the NO2 necessary for the Diesel Particle Filter to efficiently combust the particulates. In cold conditions, it also provides the heat needed for regeneration.
4. Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
The filter collects and stores particulate matter (PM) until it’s burned off during regeneration. Regeneration happens automatically – you don’t need to take any action.
5. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR)
In the mixing zone, the exhausts are sprayed with AdBlue. When they reach the catalyst, the nitrogen oxides (NO2) are efficiently transformed into harmless nitrogen gas and water.
6. Ammonia Slip Catalyst (ASC)
The last step before the tailpipe where the remaining ammonia (NH3), if any, is removed.
