Cummins starts testing with major OEM

Cummins Turbo Technologies is working with a large OEM customer to field test its new Electric Wastegate turbocharger.

The advanced wastegate technology, suitable for a range of light to heavy duty engines (3.8l– 16l), has been engineered to increase the fuel efficiency of a modern diesel engine. With its fast response and precise control at all areas of the engine performance envelope, it helps to improve performance and reduce emissions to meet the stringent targets of the market.

The Electric Wastegate offers two actuator options ensuring flexibility for different light and heavy-duty applications. Available with patented twin port technology that features an arrowhead lever design, it provides greater wastegate flow bypass whilst retaining durability and robustness. The patented twin port technology allows gas to bypass the turbine wheel from both volutes on twin entry housings, while a flexible electric actuator enables the solution for different applications by accurately controlling the flow through the wastegate valve.

Jonathan Wood – executive director, Research and Engineering said: “This is the first of our suite of next generation, post Euro 6 & EPA 13 technologies to move into field testing with customers, bringing us one step closer to production of this advanced technology.
