Advantages of BorgWarner Turbochargers

BorgWarner has been in operation since the turn of the 20th century and is one of the world’s leading suppliers of drivetrain and engine components for both light and heavy commercial vehicles. Warner Gear was founded by Thomas Warner in 1901, while Borg & Beck began in 1903. By 1928, the two had merged, creating the company we now know as BorgWarner.

Technology and innovation have always been at the centre of BorgWarner’s operations. From the Ford-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission in the 1950s to modern technologies such as Wastegate and Variable Turbine Geometry, the company continues to develop a wide range of original and aftermarket truck parts.

This article will take a look at BorgWarner’s range of turbochargers for commercial vehicles.


Advanced technologies

When you’re looking to purchase MAN truck parts or truck parts generally, it’s important to consider how the quality of these parts will affect the overall performance of the vehicle. BorgWarner brings advanced technologies to its turbochargers that deliver consistently high performance. Turbochargers from BorgWarner include Wastegate and Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG) and the multi-stage turbocharging system known as R2S®.


Wastegate turbochargers

BorgWarner’s wastegate turbochargers are manufactured in several sizes and types, allowing use in a wide range of vehicles, including trucks, buses, construction machinery, agricultural vehicles and even industrial and marine engines.

Wastegate turbochargers support engine displacement from 4.5 – 16 litres and have been primarily manufactured for applications between 20 and 600kW. Using a wastegate turbocharger from BorgWarner boosts fuel economy and performance. Importantly, OEMs are using BorgWarner wastegate turbochargers to meet emissions targets and on late model trucks it is essential to replace a turbocharger with another turbocharger of the same performance specifications.


Variable turbine geometry (VTG)

BorgWarner has been a pioneer in the field of variable turbine geometry turbochargers for trucks and buses. These VTG turbochargers are designed for engine displacement between 2 – 16 litres.

VGT turbochargers from BorgWarner feature a roller-free mechanism, reducing the amount of debris and corrosion, especially in high-temperature operations. They also operate with pneumatic or electric actuation, and the swing vane mechanism varies the flow nozzle and flow vector.

These parts are designed for maximum calibration flexibility, making them suitable for a variety of applications. They also boast improved fuel efficiency and improved transient response. Importantly, VGT technology allows for a range of different emissions reduction strategies, again helping trucks to comply with emissions regulations.


Multi-stage turbocharging systems

For applications requiring multi-stage turbocharging systems, BorgWarner is a recognised leader. BorgWarner turbochargers can facilitate several turbocharger configurations, whether you need multiple wastegates or VTG chargers. They offer seamless adaptation to engine operating points and a vacuum or electric actuation.

Fuel efficiency and emissions reductions are a key focus, but multi-stage turbocharging systems from BorgWarner also improve torque and performance and allow for significant increases in power density. The R2S system offers OEMs and vehicle owners better performance and more flexibility overall.
