Rolle, Switzerland (ots/PRNewswire)
- Innovative Sequential Boosting System Enables V8 Performance in
a V6 Engine
Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has launched a unique groundbreaking turbo
technology that is enabling the new Jaguar XF 3.0L V6 Diesel to
reduce fuel consumption by 12% and CO2 emissions by 10% compared to
its predecessor. In addition, this new boosting system allows the V6
engine to achieve performance levels of current V8 diesel engines.
Honeywell partnered with Ford and Jaguar to develop a sequential
boosting system optimized for packaging on a V-Engine configuration.
Ford, Jaguar and Honeywell engineers have overcome the challenge of
packaging this innovative boosting configuration in the limited V
architecture space, enabling automotive designers greater freedom to
optimize the vehicle for aerodynamics, weight and crash safety
without compromising the stunning car design.
"We are proud to be a part of the most advanced, powerful and
efficient Jaguar diesel ever created," said Alex Ismail, President,
Honeywell Turbo Technologies. "This technological achievement sets a
new milestone in turbo performance and highlights the determination
of Honeywell to provide its customers with world-leading
The system is comprised of two small turbos and a Honeywell
patented sequential control technology. A VNTTM turbo provides boost
at low engine speeds, maximizing driveability and fuel economy, while
the second free-floating turbo is activated in parallel at high
engine speeds to deliver best-in-class peak power. A Honeywell
patented sequential control valve ensures a smooth transition.
The new turbo system helps to produce a staggering 600Nm of
torque (38% higher than the outgoing V6) and is a step up from the
Honeywell pioneered bi-turbo architecture for diesel V-Engine
applications. The technology enables customers to significantly
improve fuel efficiency and performance in an environment unsuited to
2-Stage architecture due to space constraints.
As the leading turbocharger developer in the world, Honeywell
expects the global turbocharger segment to grow from 30% of the
overall automotive market to more than 38% by 2013 as automakers look
to boost engines to help increase fuel-efficiency and reduce harmful
exhaust emissions without sacrificing performance.
