"Our turbochargers enable heavy-duty commercial diesel engines to comply with increasingly rigorous global emissions standards while achieving better fuel economy and improved performance," said Roger Wood, Executive Vice President, BorgWarner. "Based on our long-standing experience in the field of turbocharging systems, BorgWarner has the expertise and advanced technology to meet the growing demand in this market segment."
The powerplant combines BorgWarner’s turbocharging technology and common-rail high-pressure injection to deliver 272 hp at 2,100 rpm and a peak torque of 1,170 Nm (864 lb-ft) at 1,450 rpm. The TCD 6.1 L6 unit complies with the Tier 4 Interim emissions standard and will be supplied to multiple DEUTZ customers.
“To fulfill the high requirements for power, torque and reduced emissions, DEUTZ chose BorgWarner's latest generation of turbochargers featuring a BorgWarner compact brushless actuator controlling the wastegate. During the development process, BorgWarner engineers developed a design which is reliable and robust while improving the fuel consumption and power output of the engine. The turbocharger is equipped with a milled aluminium wheel and a modified turbine housing to withstand high vibrational loading,” stated the press release.
BorgWarner’s turbocharger uses a fast electric actuator controlled using a CAN bus that offers precise regulation of the boost pressure, covering the entire rev range. Compared to its predecessor, the new unit comes with a 13 percent improvement in power output and boosts torque by almost 10 percent.
