DD15 Engine Turbo Compounding Wins TWNA Technical Achievement Award

the Truck Writers of North America (TWNA) announced Detroit Diesel Corporations's DD15 engine turbo compounding as the winner of its technical achievement award for 2008.
The award recognizes a product or service that exhibits technical innovation, has a wide applicability to the trucking industry, offers significant benefits to users and is widely available. Complete vehicles are not eligible, but individual componenets and systems are.
the turbo compounding system employs a second exhaust turbine downstream of the standard turbocharger. In addition to providing a more efficient source of exhaust back-pressure for the engine's Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system, the secondary turbine's output is hydro-dynamically coupled to the engine's drive gears.
Finalists for the award included:Bendix's Adaptive Cruise Control; Cummins Westport's ISL G Natural Gas Engine; Eaton's Hybrid-Electric System; Eaton's Hydraulic Launch Assist System; Goodyear's DuraSeal Trailer Tire; Great Dane's CorroGuard Undercoating; and Meritor WABCO's OnGuard Collision Avoidance System.

"My Series 60 Detroit with over 1 million miles is running great and now is used about 3 days a week. From the day of purchase it has been serviced every 15,000 miles, the oil pan & valve covers have never even been off. Purchased new in 1993 this engine has never failed to start and the original water pump is still in service. Remarkable!!"
