  • Experts present high-performance technologies for all propulsion systems
  • Innovative BorgWarner solutions enable automakers to meet Bharat Stage (BS) VI emission standards

Auburn Hills, Michigan, February 5, 2018 – As a global leader in clean and efficient technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles, BorgWarner presents its broad product portfolio at the 14th Auto Expo in New Delhi from February 8 to 11, 2018. At booth 73 in hall 11, the company will show solutions that help automakers master the challenges posed by ever stricter emission standards. Accordingly, for combustion engines, BorgWarner will focus on technologies that help optimize engine efficiency and performance while reducing emissions, and will also present a broad range of solutions for hybrid and pure electric vehicles.

“At BorgWarner, we constantly work on providing solutions that help all vehicles meet stringent emission standards like BS VI while still improving performance and fuel efficiency,” said Scott Gallett, Vice President, Marketing, Public Relations and Government Affairs, BorgWarner. “The Auto Expo 2018 is an ideal platform for showcasing our extensive range of products for clean and efficient vehicles of the future no matter which propulsion system is used.”

Following current trends, BorgWarner’s exhibits will include highly efficient solutions for combustion engines like the company’s CTA phasers with mid-position lock technology. This advanced variable cam timing technology enables optimized valve timing control over a broad range of engine speeds. In addition, the company will showcase its mild hybridization expertise with the eBooster® electrically driven compressor and 48V eFan. For hybrids and pure electric vehicles, the company will show its latest innovations, including silent chains for P3-type hybrids, low pressure exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) modules, a high-voltage air heater operating independently of engine waste heat and the electric Drive Module (eDM). This all-in-one electric propulsion solution combines BorgWarner’s tried-and-tested eGearDrive® transmission and the high voltage hairpin (HVH) electric motor in a single module for simple installation.

BorgWarner has also developed a wide range of solutions to support commercial vehicle manufacturers in meeting current and future emissions regulations. For instance, the company’s series of modular compact floating core EGR coolers for a wide range of commercial vehicle applications offer high robustness against thermal fatigue and enhanced coolant distribution for durable performance, even at a minimum coolant flow, and they reduce NOx emissions too. Another technology shown at the Auto Expo India is the latest generation of the electronically actuated Visctronic® fan drive for commercial vehicles. Combining the robust, modular design of its predecessor with an improved internal control system and a new proprietary slip heat enhancement feature, this high-performance fan drive is able to operate under high loads and in tough environments.

BorgWarner introduces 4 new EGR coolers for commercial vehicle applications

  • Four new designs cover a wide range of engine sizes
  • Enhance coolant distribution and provide high robustness against thermal fatigue
  • Help commercial vehicles with natural gas engines meet emissions regulations

Auburn Hills, Michigan, August 1, 2017 – To support commercial vehicle manufacturers in meeting current and future emissions regulations, BorgWarner has developed an economical new series of multi-platform exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) coolers featuring a compact floating core. Unlike conventional solutions which must be specifically designed for each application, the company’s modular cooler family includes four highly adaptable standard designs for maximum flexibility covering a wide range of engine sizes from 2.0- to 16.0-liter displacement. The new EGR solution offers high robustness against thermal fatigue and enhanced coolant distribution for durable performance even with minimum coolant flow, while reducing NOX emissions.

“With lower production volumes and high durability requirements, the commercial vehicle segment needs an EGR solution that provides outstanding performance and reduces complexity at the same time,” said Joe Fadool, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Emissions & Thermal Systems. “Offering high flexibility and durability, our newly developed EGR coolers have already piqued the interest of several manufacturers that see the potential for a cost-effective solution to help meet increasingly stringent emissions regulations.”

Featuring hybrid tube heat transfer technology and a floating inner core, BorgWarner’s EGR coolers are designed to resist high levels of thermal load. In addition, the system provides enhanced coolant distribution, which enables durable performance even with minimum coolant flow. BorgWarner integrated a thermomechanical damper into the design to facilitate complete decoupling of the shell and inner core components to absorb longitudinal and angular differences for improved durability. The damper also provides some initial extra cooling for the inlet gas to reduce thermal shock and allows better gas distribution to the tubes to resist thermal fatigue. In addition, cooling the damper and inlet gas box reduces the overall temperatures achieved, which in turn significantly lowers thermal stress. When the system is operated at an exhaust gas temperature of 1,562°F (850°C), the inlet gas box temperature is kept below 392°F (200°C), compared to more than 1,292°F (700°C) without cooling. The advanced design also minimizes the effect of the engine transients over the EGR cooler’s durability. The four new coolers allow the standardization of most of the components from one application to another, with the exception of the housing and the mounting fixtures, resulting in maximum adaptability for robust, tailor-made solutions and high cost-efficiency.
