Green Turbo Applications
Our innovative engineering capabilities and commitment to the environment is also applied to applications, some which do not involve an engine at all! One example is the Talbott's Biomass Generator where a Brayton cycle is used to extract heat energy from burning waste biomass and turn it in to electrical energy using a power turbine.
Holset turbochargers can be found in the most challenging of places. We have helped boost engines for Indycar, race trucks, high speed power boats, Paris Dakar trucks and even a Bio-diesel dragster! We are also the only turbo manufacturer to supply turbochargers to all the on-highway trucks sold at 700HP and above at Euro 5.
Waste Heat Recovery Test Cell
Cummins Turbo Technologies is well placed to lead on new technologies required for emerging fuel economy and CO2 legislation, with the development of a new test cell designed by our own engineers. This unique capability is already supporting current developments on our turbine expander for Rankine cycle waste heat recovery systems.
Noise Test Cell
Unique semi anechoic test cell facilities have been specifically designed and built by Cummins Turbo Technologies to measure the noise emitting from each part of a turbocharger. Induction, exhaust and ambient spaces are separated and measured individually so that the source of noise can be identified, analysis of improvements made and solutions developed.
New Engine Test Cells
Cummins Turbo Technologies continues to invest in significant engine test cell facilities around the world to validate designs and ensure performance, durability and reliability targets are met. Facilities support a range of test engines from small light commercial vehicles up to industrial, marine and rail applications of 19 litres in size. The latest engine test cells are automated and can run transient cycles as well as steady state points.
Cummins Turbo Technologies has generated many new concepts in its history and been first to market with many critical turbomachinery innovations. We are the leading supplier of turbocompound systems and have developed a robust variable geometry turbine. Our series sequential two-stage solution, uses a unique rotary valve that combines many functions in one. Electrically assisted turbochargers are being developed, as are new materials and coatings. Cummins Turbo Technologies is a technology partner, not just a turbo manufacturer. Come and consult our engineers to see how we can help.
