Comprex (R) Supercharging and Emissions Reduction in Vehicular Diesel Engines 900881
The pressure wave supercharger Comprex(R) has already found wide scale application to passenger car diesel engines. The ideal throughput characteristic and instantaneous pressure build-up make it an interesting alternative supercharger for all vehicular engines, particularly under stringent emission regulations. A new control mechanism substantially increases pressure and efficiency at part load. And, the ability to promote catalytic post-oxidation in the cellular rotor itself is gaining in attractiveness. Over 1 million kilometers have been logged and 13'000 hours recorded in utility vehicles. This demonstrates that technical maturity, a prerequisite for utility fleet applications, has been attained.
