Borgwarner supplies B-series turbochargers for Deutz heavy-duty diesel engine

ABR Staff Writer Published 18 March 2011

BorgWarner is supplying its latest B-series generation turbochargers for the newly developed DEUTZ 6.1-liter six-cylinder heavy-duty diesel engine, used in the agricultural machinery segment.

The company said that the combination of its turbocharging technology and common-rail high-pressure injection provides a rated power of 203 kW at 2100 rpm and an impressive torque of 1170 Nm at 1450 rpm.

The optimized turbocharging system significantly boosts fuel economy, lowers emissions and helps comply with the stringent Tier 4 interim emissions standard.

DEUTZ, one of the independent manufacturers of diesel engines, will supply its fuel-efficient TCD 6.1 L6 engine to several of its customers.

BorgWarner EVP Roger Wood said the company's turbochargers enable heavy-duty commercial diesel engines to comply with increasingly rigorous global emissions standards while achieving better fuel economy and improved performance.

"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," Wood said.

DEUTZ said it selected BorgWarner's latest generation of turbochargers featuring a compact brushless actuator controlling the wastegate to fulfill the high requirements for power, torque and reduced emissions.

The turbocharger is equipped with a milled aluminium wheel and a modified turbine housing to withstand high vibrational loading.

The company said that compared with its predecessor, the new engine delivers a 13% improvement in power output and increases torque by almost 10%.
