Behr India, a joint venture between Behr GmbH & Co. KG, Stuttgart, a systems partner for international automobile industry and Anand Automotive Limited, one of India’s leading manufacturers of automotive components and systems, announced the introduction of ‘Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) technology in India. The EGR technology will help heavy trucks and ultra light commercial vehicles to meet the upcoming Euro 4 standards in India.
In the EGR cooling process, the exhaust gas is processed through a cooling system and then mixed with fresh intake air to reduce the level of pollutants. This lowers the oxygen concentration in the cylinder charge and the combustion temperature drops, hence reducing the amount of nitrogen oxides in the exhaust gas. It can be combined with other pollutant reduction systems at no great expense, allowing vehicles to comply with much lower limits for pollutant emissions.
Speaking on the launch of EGR technology, Sunil Kaul, President & COO, Behr India Limited noted, “In anticipation of new Euro 4 emission standards in India we are happy to introduce EGR technology. The new technology will help reduce pollutant emission and it has been introduced keeping in mind our commitment towards public health & safety.”
Using a new kind of material coating, Behr has succeeded in minimizing the level of corrosion on the aluminum, so that the charge air cooler can now be used as a component over the full service life of EGR systems. Behr India has already received 4 business nominations from various customers, while some of the projects are still under acquisition. Behr India is all geared up for this product and plans to launch with ‘Zero PPM & Zero warranty’ tag.
