MODULAR PULSE CONVERTER TURBOCHARGING PROCESS AND EXHAUST VALVE FACING TEMPERATURE

Exhaust valves and turbochargers are today the two main obstacles to the development of diesel engines. Researches made up to now in the turbocharging field had led to conclude that the multipulse system was the most suitable from the engine performance standpoint when the constant pressure system was the more economical. The idea to gather the advantages of both systems has led S. E. M. T. to design and develop a modular pulse converter system (MPC) in which each cylinder feeds a single exhaust pipe of reduced diameter through ejector. The single exhaust pipe feeds the turbocharger at constant pressure.
