The amount of harmful exhaust gases from fuel engines must be as low as possible. Car manufacturers use Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) for this. Part of the exhaust gases that have already been burned is re-routed to the combustion chambers via the EGR valve. This makes the combustion process calmer, decreases the combustion temperature and causes fewer nitrogen oxides to be formed. The dirty exhaust gasses, however, clog the intake system and the fuel system, reducing performance and increasing fuel consumption. JLM develops products that remove and prevent this pollution.
EGR stands for exhaust gas regulation or exhaust gas recirculation. The system is used to reduce the emission of harmful exhaust gases. As implied by the name, exhaust gas recirculation means that the dirty gases generated in the cylinders during combustion are recirculated and pumped into the engine again so they can go through the combustion cycle one more time. As a result, the EGR system itself, the inlet channel, the valves and valve seats, among other things, become heavily fouled.
In almost all cases, contaminated EGR and intake systems can be easily cleaned with JLM products. JLM also makes products which drastically reduce fouling and can often even completely prevent it. Thanks to these products, there’s no more need for expensive repairs or replacing expensive components.
