Sometimes referred to as sequential turbos, a series turbo set-up involves two turbochargers installed in series or in line (as opposed to parallel or side by side). With this configuration, we’reable to deliver higher engine ratings through a smaller displacement engine.
Series turbos will give you increased power density and performance. With the reduction of turbolag you get with series turbos, you can also benefit from an improved transient response and increased turbocharger efficiency. This configuration also provides an opportunity to downsize from an engine with a larger displacement to a smaller one, bringing about improved efficiency and reduced emissions.

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
