Behr India, a joint venture between Behr GmbH & Co.KG, Stuttgart, and Anand Automotive has 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/Bharat Stage IV 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 at the launch of Exhaust Gas Recirculation technology, Sunil Kaul, president and COO,
Behr India, said: “In anticipation of new Euro 4 emission standards in India, we are happy to introduce EGR technology. The new technology will help reduce pollutant emissions and it has been introduced keeping in mind our commitment towards public health and safety.”
Using a new kind of material coating, Behr has succeeded in minimising the level of corrosion on the aluminium, 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 four business nominations from various customers, while some of the projects are still under acquisition. Behr India says it is all geared up for this product and plans to launch with a 'zero PPM and zero warranty' tag.
