Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) is used to reduce the levels of NOx emitted by the engine. By recirculating exhaust gases into the engine’s cylinder, a percentage of the air is replaced with CO2. This process lowers the combustion temperature due to the reduced amount of oxygen which, in turn, reduces the amount of NOx formed.
The exhaust gases can either be externally cooled and piped into the inlet manifold or managed internally through the camshaft.
EGR is one of the aftertreatment options we offer
If you’re using a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system you need diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) for the system to work.Learn More
A diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) is an aftertreatment component that is designed to convert carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide and water.Learn More
During your diesel engine’s combustion process, particulate matter (PM) forms. Our diesel particulate filter (DPF) solutions capture a high percentage of PM or soot.Learn More
A series turbo set-up involves two turbochargers installed to operate in sequence.Learn More
Passive regeneration is an approach used to oxidise particulate matter (PM) in the diesel particulate filter (DPF).Learn More
Emission standards require engine manufacturers to reduce certain engine emissions, including nitrogen oxides (NOx). One of the options available for reducing NOx emissions is selective catalytic reduction (SCR), which is used on a number of our engines.Learn More
One of the technologies available for the reduction of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) is exhaust gas recirculation (EGR).Learn More
Reducing particulates and optimising fuel consumption are primary reasons for adding high pressure common rail (HPCR) systems to an engine. The HPCR is used in diesel engines across our range, providing improved fuel efficiency through a more efficient combustion process.Learn More
