In anticipation of the upcoming EU Stage V emissions legislation, Senior Flexonics has developed a compact, lightweight and routable EGR cooler aimed directly at engine manufacturers in the 0-56kW power range.
The finned Co-axial Cooler takes Senior’s patented co-axial cooler technology and adds a highly effective internal fin to increase temperature drop and reduce pressure drop even further. This design can be tailored and routed to customers’ exact needs, and is capable of reducing exhaust gas temperatures by over 150°C in as little as 8cm of cooled length.
Robert Vaughan, business development director for Senior Flexonics, said, “This power range is most affected by the proposed new legislation. Most significantly, the 19-36kW range will be expected to reduce Particulate Matter by 85%, while NOx and hydrocarbon emissions will reduce by 37%. This will affect applications where size and weight are at a premium, so the solution needs to reflect this. We developed and perfected this design for the passenger car market, so it is a natural evolution to extend this proven technology into off-highway applications”.
As well as acting as a standalone cooler for low power engines, the finned Co-axial Cooler can act as a supplementary cooler to EGR systems on higher power engines, allowing manufacturers to upgrade their existing technology with minimal disruption.
