Navistar’s Pure Power Technologies company will manufacture an advanced exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR) valve after the company acquired the assets and intellectual property rights to the valves from Holley Performance Products.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“This aligns with our business strategy of controlling our destiny by gaining control of critical component technologies which drive differentiation in today’s modern diesel engines,” said Eric Tech, president, Navistar Engine Group, which will use the EGR valve across its line of MaxxForce big-bore truck diesels.
The valve technology enables increased EGR system air flow, reducing engine combustion temperatures, Navistar said. Low combustion temperatures are one of the keys to Navistar’s Advanced MaxxForce EGR system for meeting EPA 2010 emissions standards, the manufacturer noted.
“This component allows precise and efficient air management in MaxxForce engines,” said Houman Kashanipour, president of Pure Power Technologies. “As a result, Navistar customers benefit with high performance, high efficiency and low diesel emissions.”
