Woodward High-Temperature Wastegate Valves
Wastegate (or turbo by-pass) is an effective method to improve efficiency on lean-burn gas, stoichiometric gas, and diesel engines. The challenge for the heavy industrial market has been to meter exhaust gas for wastegate control for either diesel or spark-ignited engines with gas temperatures up to 750 °C using electronic actuation technology and without the need for extra cooling circuitry.
When included with Woodward’s integrated package comprised of a valve, rotary actuator, linkage, support bracket, and actuation technology, the GloTech™ valve is a proven solution. Depending on the required pressure drop, the GloTech can be mated with Woodward’s ProAct™ or F-Series actuators.
