Lowering emissions with exhaust fumes:
TurboCompound

As of 2013 Euro 6 will be introduced gradually for heavy commercial vehicles. This means dramatically stricter emission regulations. The Voith TurboCompound system helps engine manufacturers to reach these limit values: Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions can be reduced by as much as 3 percent.

Making progress with exhaust fumes

Only 44% of the energy present in the fuel reaches the wheels. The rest literally disappears into thin air: as thermal, friction, and exhaust gas energy. TurboCompound systems by Voith convert the thermal energy that is present in the exhaust fumes and transfers it to the crank shaft. The efficiency of the engine increases and CO2emissions are lowered. This gives your vehicle the green light. Even in environmentally sensitive areas.

Voith TurboCompound: Function and design

turbocompound

Another turbine is installed in the exhaust line downstream from the turbo-charger . The hot exhaust gases drive the turbine, thus generating mechanical output. This output is transmitted to the engine's crank shaft via a coupling.

  • Max. output 75 kW
  • Turbine speed 50,000 RPM-1

Benefits:

  • Increased engine output across the entire RPM range 
  • Lower exhaust gas emissions 
  • Reduced fuel consumption
