Four-Stroke Engines to Increase the Adoption of GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection)

Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) Market

Increasing number of automobiles is driving the need for dynamic performance of automobile engines, which in turn is expected to fuel the growth of global market for GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection). A recent report anticipates that the global market for GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) will expand at an outstanding 14.7% CAGR during the forecast period, 2017-2022, to touch an evaluation of US$ 6.6Bn by 2022-end. Companies namely Eaton, Bosch, TI Automotive (Heidelberg), Keihin, Renesas Electronics, Continental and STMicroelectronics among others will witness a sizeable growth globally. Leading companies are intent on marketing schemes such as product developments and growing their product portfolio.

Eaton Introduces an Innovative GDI Technology

Eaton recently announced the launch of an innovative iEGR (Internal Exhaust Gas Recirculation) technology. Manufacturers must note that this development will allow the automobile engineers in catering to the increasing stringent regulations and norms with regards to diesel engine emissions. This process is done by offering direct control over thermal controlling of exhaust system.

Internal exhaust gas recirculation helps in generating hotter exhaust gas. This in turn heats the catalyst onto appropriate operating temperature, thereby opening a single exhaust valve during intake stroke of piston, for the purpose of drawing hot exhaust gas, from exhaust manifold in cylinder. Internal exhaust gas recirculation technology of Eaton utilizes a switchable roller-rocker arm in every cylinder, which can also be electro-mechanically actuated.

The systems that depend on hydraulic pressure for providing internal exhaust gas recirculation functionality will require longer period of time for generating heat. However, the internal exhaust gas recirculation system by Eaton will provide required heat instantaneously, which helps in eliminating emissions in the time when cooling gets started. Manufacturers must collaborate with Eaton and plan to develop such products as the number of automobiles is increasing on a rapid pace.

Bosch Develops Innovative Diesel Exhaust System

Bosch recently announced that their engineers have worked on an innovative diesel exhaust system, which would help in lowering emissions to a level, after which the governments do not have to worry about banning of fuel. The internal probe launched by Bosch has been approved by federal authorities. Manufacturers are to note that there is increasing demand for diesel-friendly equipment across the globe since the recent past.

The innovative diesel exhaust system introduced by Bosch helps in reducing emissions, way lesser than the legal limits that are in effect currently. The automakers can take note of the fact that even though diesel is nearly banned in Europe, this company is still taking immense efforts is improving its business which gives key players lucrative opportunities to enter into collaborations with the company, thereby improving its position in the global market for GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection).

The innovative technology helps in optimizing the thermal controlling of exhaust temperatures, thereby reducing emissions of nitrogen oxide to nearly 1/10th of legally permitted limitations that are about to be implemented. The technology developed by Bosch avoids requirement of any new hardware, thereby stabilizes emission levels at colder temperatures as well.
