Common-rail systems empower diesel engines with fuel efficiency
Common-rail systems for cars inject diesel engines with a range of environmental and operating benefits over gasoline-powered vehicles. According to the company, the technology delivers a powertrain solution that can improve fuel economy by up to 30%, reduce carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 25% and provide a 50% improvement in torque to improve vehicle performance. Company is further developing both piezo and solenoid-valve injectors to improve the performance and exhaust properties of diesel engines, while ensuring that modern diesel engines meet future emission standards. In addition, product line includes particulate filters and urea-based devices to reduce diesel emissions. Robert Bosch LLC, Farmington Hills, Mich.
