Rheinmetall has acquired a strategically important first order for valves for exhaust gas recirculation (EGR valves) from an internationally active new customer in the trucks segment. The customer ordered poppet valves and flap valves for use in the heavy-duty and medium-duty sectors (HD and MD). The valves meet the highest requirements for exhaust gas valves according to the EURO-7 standard. The number ordered is almost 1 million parts over a lifetime. The value of the order is a three-digit number of millions of euros. Volume production and the delivery of spare parts will commence in 2026. The project is set to develop into a long-term partnership.
The valves will be used in exhaust gas recirculation systems, which serve to lower both nitrogen emissions and the consumption of fuel. With regard to the stricter emission laws being passed in the USA, Asia, and Europe, there will continue to be a high demand for long-term support in the engine sector.
The Sensors and Actuators division serves as an example of excellent competence in thermal and fluid management applications in the mobility and industrial sectors. The five business areas Actuators, Air Emission Systems, Commercial Diesel Systems, Pump Technology, and Solenoid Valves are developing solutions for the great challenges of mobility, like downsizing, reducing emissions, and increasing efficiency while at the same time optimising performance. The comprehensive product portfolio shows a variety of EGR systems, electromotive throttle valves, control dampers and exhaust gas flaps, solenoid valves, actuators, and valve operating systems as well as oil, water, and vacuum pumps for private and commercial vehicles, off-road uses from light duty to heavy duty and industrial applications.
