The EGR system emerged due to the increase of HDI applications and a new European regulation to reduce pollutant emissions.
Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) is an efficient, cost-effective system for reducing NOx. The high-pressure EGR loop collects part of the exhaust gases at the cylinder head outlet and re-injects them into the engine air intake. The main benefit is that NOx is reduced at the source by limiting their quantities produced during the combustion process rather than by post-treating the exhaust gases.
A correctly operating EGR system is required for a cleaner combustion process and for adhering to the legislation.
Today, almost all European diesel engines are equipped with an EGR system. The workshops will find EGR valve and module spare parts from Valeo for all regulation types, from Euro 2 to Euro 6.
As one of the leaders in this field, Valeo has a complete range of competitive solutions based on high and low pressure architectures for gasoline and diesel engines. Valeo’s solutions meet the most challenging of automakers’ demands in terms of cost, quality and reliability.
- Valeo is in 2014 the only supplier of full EGR systems that include the valve and heat exchanger.
