"BorgWarner's advanced EGR solutions, combined with our optimized
turbocharging technology, is a major step in enabling diesel engines to meet
future emissions regulations while improving fuel economy," said Brady
Ericson, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Emissions Systems. "With
our many years of experience, BorgWarner offers customers the latest compact,
low-pressure EGR technology. We expect this effective, fast-growing technology
to drive engine advancements in the future."
Renault's powertrain strategy included a low-pressure, compact EGR system.
Although low-pressure EGR systems offer lower emissions and better fuel
economy than high-pressure systems, components in low-pressure EGR systems
must withstand extreme loads and damaging particles. BorgWarner's EGR cooler
technology employs highly corrosion-resistant stainless steel hybrid tubes
inside the cooler to quickly reduce the temperature of hot exhaust gases. The
specially shaped hybrid tubes keep exhaust gases moving at high speeds to
increase EGR rates as well as avoid soot and hydrocarbon buildup. The system
also features an integrated hydro formed EGR tube to guide exhaust gases into
the cooler and a metallic EGR filter with optimized permeability to protect
the turbocharger compressor wheel by filtering out any remaining particulates.
Built for durability and performance, BorgWarner's advanced EGR cooler offers
a compact, cost-effective and easy-to-install technology engineered to reduce
emissions and improve fuel economy.
