Behr America says it has developed an improved exhaust gas recirculation cooler that adheres to the latest U.S. emissions standards for heavy trucks. The EGR cooler was redesigned to double the recirculation rate of cooled exhaust so that it now will have an increased power density, pressure strength and resistance to vibrations.
Behr has developed a new management system – called the House of Reliability (HoR) – that it says keeps track of the reliability of the new EGR cooler. The HoR is based on seven elements: mission profile, failure management and weak-point analysis, virtual breakdown, component analysis, test strategy, field observation and validation.
