4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with its B01 turbocharger with integrated wastegate for controlled boost pressure.
Products acquired include exhaust gas recirculation modules (EGRs), electronic coolant pumps and valves, electronic wastegate actuators and electronic throttle bodies.
The turbocharger is designed to allow the wastegate valve to be electromechanically adjusted using only the minimum amount of electrical power, thereby efficiently providing power.
For diesel and gasoline engine applications, a Rotrex A/S supercharger in combination with a variable drive or electric/hydraulic motor can be applied either alone or with a larger wastegate turbocharger.
In other words, this turbocharger acts as an energy recovery device, capturing energy from the exhaust when a normal turbocharger would be dumping this energy through the wastegate.
VGT/VNT turbochargers are mainly used in passenger cars due to its excellent performance in low displacement engines, whereas wastegate turbochargers are used in commercial vehicle applications as it offers fuel efficiency over engine performance.
