BorgWarner opened a new 86,000-square-foot (8,000-square-meter) facility in Manesar, India, near New Delhi to produce exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) coolers, tubes, valves and modules. The company expects its Indian EGR business to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 35% over the next five years.
Built to replace the previous facility in Faridabad, the wholly-owned operation will expand manufacturing capacity and provide sales, design, test and validation capabilities for a wide range of domestic and international automakers, including Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra & Mahindra, Renault, GM, Tata Motors, Fiat, Ashok Leyland, Volvo Eicher and others.
Today’s downsized engines generate higher temperatures in the combustion chamber forming nitrogen oxide (NOx). BorgWarner’s EGR technologies help automakers reduce NOx to meet stringent emissions regulations by recirculating and cooling exhaust gases to reduce combustion temperatures. BorgWarner’s expertise in advanced EGR technologies covers the entire system. BorgWarner’s valves control exhaust gases that flow through tubes to a cooler where gas temperatures drop to 130 °C - 175 °C and then return to the combustion chamber. The valves are driven by robust actuators, built for durability and performance. BorgWarner EGR systems are engineered for nearly any application from passenger cars to commercial trucks.
