Turbochargers boost power and efficiency with a minimum of weight, and produce heat for chemical reactions critical to some exhaust aftertreatment systems. Cummins Turbo Technologies (CTT) produces durable and innovative turbochargers to meet the global challenges of emissions reduction, fuel consumption and total cost of ownership. In both new product production and remanufacturing, the group is a critical partner to Cummins engine applications and other key external partners.
Cummins Turbo Technologies in March 2015 officially launched its new Two-Stage Turbocharger. The Two-Stage system with Rotary Turbine Control is Cummins’ most sophisticated turbocharger to date, delivering high efficiency and low emissions levels.
This integrated technology was developed in partnership with Cummins Engine Business and Nissan, specifically for use on the 2016 Nissan TITAN XD pickup truck. The technology was developed at the Company’s technical centers in Huddersfield in the United Kingdom and Columbus, Indiana (U.S.A.). It offers a flexible architecture that efficiently integrates and packages two turbochargers in series to deliver high performance levels.
“Advances in air handling technology and improved system integration continue to provide new turbocharging solutions that enable customers to achieve their emission and efficiency targets without compromising engine performance,” said Jonathan Wood, Executive Director – Research and Engineering.
