exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) module which includes cooler and valve will be
the company’s first gasoline EGR module to be used on mild-hybrid engine
technology for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) in the EMEA (Europe, Middle
East, Africa) region.
BorgWarner is a global product leader in clean and
efficient technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles.
now supplies its EGR technology to the latest Fire Fly gasoline engine, which
was developed for the Fiat 500 and Panda hybrid models. Its compact package
reduces weight and therefore lowers the emissions of Fiat’s naturally aspirated
1.0-litre, three-cylinder engine.
are pleased to expand BorgWarner's long-term relationship with FCA and support
them on their way to hybrid mobility by reducing emissions and improving fuel
efficiency by supplying our gasoline EGR module," said Joe Fadool,
President and General Manager, BorgWarner Emissions, Thermal and Turbo Systems.
ability to develop and manufacture this compact EGR module in-house
demonstrates a high level of expertise and added value for our customer,"
technology is used to contain combustion temperatures and increase engine efficiency
by recirculating exhaust gas back into the intake air, delivering reduced brake
specific fuel consumption (BSFC) and improved fuel economy, supporting industry
goals for cleaner-running hybrid applications. Moreover, it also reduces brake
specific fuel consumption (BSFC) due to de-throttling within the part load
area. Featuring hybrid tube technology and materials, BorgWarner’s EGR coolers
are proven to resist fatigue caused by the high temperatures in gasoline
engines. Additionally, the valve directly measures valve lift which increases
the accuracy of EGR control.
offers a broad range of versatile and multifunctional EGR solutions for
gasoline and diesel applications in the commercial-vehicle markets. These
solutions include individual components as well as complete modules equipped
with valves and coolers for high- and low-pressure EGR systems.
