EGR - The Engine Killer in Your Long-Haul Truck
There are many ways in which EGR is killing your engine. Longterm, it messes with the engine in various ways. In turn, the life of your engine shortens. It also makes it harder to save fuel and idle when you can. Some of the crucial things that are affected are increased emissions, reduced engine performance, shortened lubricant life, and increased carbon/soot deposits throughout the engine. It might not be a question of how it affects your engine, but rather, when and how severe the problem will be? To eliminate these problems, we’ve created the EGR Delete Kit for Diesel and Cummins engines. It’s important for anyone on the road to be knowledgable on their engines. In this way, you’ll be able to allow your engine to live longer. You’ll also be saving time and money in the long run.
The Effect of EGR on Diesel Engine Wear
In modern engines, the EGR gas is cooled with a heat exchanger. This allows the introduction of a greater mass of recirculated gas. Unline Spark-ignition engine, Diesel's are not limited by the need for a contiguous flame front. Notably, when the exhaust is recirculated, it will increase the engine wear. This is because carbon particulate washes past the rings and into the oil. In short, this is terrible for the engine.
In addition, EGR systems can add abrasive contaminants and increase engine oil acidity, which in turn can reduce engine longevity.
Your Handy Delete Kit
In recognizing these problems, we sought out a solution. With nothing on the market to combat trucker’s problems, we made our own. Our EGR Delete Kit is installed into your truck and lets your engine live a longer life. Stop refueling so often. Use that time to get to your destination faster.
