THE NEW MTU 595 ENGINE: A WORKHORSE WITH RACING CAPABILITIES, OR VICE VERSA?

MTU Friedrichshafen, now a member of Deutsche Aerospace A6, is active worldwide with their compact high-performance diesel engines. They have now launched the 595 engine generation that is based on an engine philosophy that is trend-setting in many aspects. The philosophy is to introduce an engine well-suited for high- performance applications and able to provide the long operating life needed in continuous duty service. The engine, which is described with accompanying photos and diagrams, features a two-stage sequential turbocharging system with intercooling, a 1500 bar direct injection system with individual injection pumps, a split-circuit cooling system, a cylinder cut-out system for control of white smoke, and an electronic engine control system (ESC). The ESC system is centered on an electronic governor developed in house. It controls and monitors all important engine functions to provide favorable fuel consumption, low exhaust emissions, low life cycle costs and long maintenance intervals.
