With the advent of stringent emissions regulations, the Exhaust Gas Recirculation Cooler (EGR-C) has become a critical component in diesel engine systems to reduce NOx (nitrous oxide) emissions. This is accomplished by returning cooled exhaust gas back to the engine. The EGR-C is designed to cool this recirculated exhaust gas with coolant, thereby reducing its volume and increasing its density.
Typical applications utilizing cooled exhaust heat exchangers include diesel engines installed in medium and heavy duty trucks, vans, and buses.
Features and Benefits
Modine offers a highly efficient, vacuum-brazed, stainless steel tube-and-insert design that is well suited to the durability and performance requirements of the market. An EGR-C can be optimized for performance by varying fin densities and/or geometries, and can be customized to your installation with formed or cast housings.
In 2000, Modine was the first heat exchanger manufacturer to market with a heavy-duty truck EGR-C. With years of global expertise, Modine can offer an integrated system approach to reduce emissions and optimize engine performance.
