SuperTurbo Technologies has announced the launch of the final product design validation work for the SuperTurbo, which is designed to support 7.5L to 16L diesel engines for both on-highway and construction applications.
The new technology gains significance as it will help support the demand from these customer segments where increasingly strict emission and CO2 regulations require advanced air management systems.
Leading global engine OEMs look for innovative technologies, including the SuperTurbo, for achieving China-7, Euro-7 and California Air Resource Board / EPA 2024 / 2027 emissions requirements while also delivering improved transient response performance and efficiency.
According to the company, the design validation is an important milestone due to several years of successful technology and product development and refinement, including significant testing by OEMs and industry-leading third-party testing facilities.
The design validation process will be led by AVL as part of a broader partnership collaboration that includes Design for Manufacturing with key production partners, the company said.
SuperTurbo selected AVL as its partner to leverage its decades of experience and expertise to design a full range of extensive durability, functionality and reliability growth testing. Besides, it helps in analyses using simulations, bench rigs, engine dynamometers and vehicle testing. These processes will result in a SuperTurbo design that is fully vetted and ready to meet the rigorous, real-world demands of the commercial vehicle markets, the company said.
The company has identified the production partners and worked out a strategy to take up production following the successful completion of the design validation process.
