Mercedes-Benz innovation: diesel to BLUETEC

The technology for the cleanest diesel in the Vision CLS 320

CLS 350 CGI – second-generation direct petrol system

At the Geneva Motor 2006, Mercedes-Benz is unveiling two that pave the way for an all-new of diesel vehicles: the Vision CLS 320 and the Vision GL 320 BLUETEC. The state-of-the-art technology makes CDI models Mercedes-Benz the cleanest diesels in the in any vehicle category. Added to is the exceptional torque, economical and high operating range are so renowned for. This is why Mercedes-Benz is getting ready to the BLUETEC technology in a passenger car in Europe too by no later than

By introducing the innovative modular technology package, Mercedes-Benz has the diesel engine into a propulsion unit with the to comply with even the stringent emission standards in the world. Equipped with the Mercedes-Benz CDI models become the diesels in the world in any category and consume between 20 and 40 per cent fuel than comparable models. This makes the Vision CLS 320 BLUETEC with an fuel consumption of 35.8 mpg and the Vision GL 320 BLUETEC with an 28.5 mpg (NEDC) the most and cleanest-running models in their

Registrations of new diesel passenger in Western Europe totalled 7.2 last year, meaning every second customer for a diesel: at Mercedes-Benz, the diesel is even higher at 54 per cent. fuel prices expected to rising, the economical and clean vehicles from Mercedes-Benz one answer with a guaranteed

BLUETEC is a modular concept, combines various perfectly technical measures aimed at minimising untreated emissions the engine and at effective aftertreatment of the gases. The result is a gradual and minimisation of all relevant emission Passenger cars equipped this technology incorporate an catalytic converter and a particulate as well as systems for effectively nitrogen oxides. This is the BLUETEC technology comes in. is not just the cleanest diesel in the world; its low consumption in real helps customers to make fuel savings.

The first model to feature BLUETEC will be the E 320 BLUETEC which become available to customers in the USA Model Year 2007. The plans to launch a BLUETEC passenger car in Europe too by no later 2008. The development work for the market is geared towards nitrogen oxides to a minimum, the technology to European driving and implementing BLUETEC technology as far as is possible, zero impact on consumption (CO 2 ). The wide-scale introduction of throughout Europe is dependent on the of sulphur-free diesel fuel (10 in all European countries.

Diesel passenger cars – yet another success story

Mercedes-Benz was the to implement Rudolf Diesel’s principle in a truck engine 80 years ago. And the Mercedes-Benz 260 D exactly 70 years ago in March was the world’s first ever passenger car with a diesel This technology is significantly efficient than the petrol and has been optimised over a of many years. One innovation in – the common-rail direct injection in conjunction with four per cylinder introduced in 1997 – has had a impact on the development of the modern engine. Since then, the CDI has come to stand for unsurpassed economy and a major boost in – which means the car has better power and is more fun to drive. As a diesel vehicles often the edge over similarly petrol models.

The few disadvantages diesel models previously had to their petrol counterparts to specific diesel emissions, particulate matter and nitrogen However, since the introduction of the particulate filter for its diesel cars to coincide with EU4 standard compliance in autumn Mercedes-Benz has also brought an exemplary reduction in particulate And although it has succeeded in cutting oxide emissions by some 75 per through engine modifications in the past 15 years, Mercedes-Benz to go even further still. The is clear: the ingenious BLUETEC gives Mercedes-Benz diesel the potential to comply with the most stringent emission In other words, Mercedes-Benz is set to the cleanest diesel in the world in vehicle category.

Today’s diesel engines also for agility, sportiness and reliability, as last spring when standard-specification E 320 CDI models broke a of impressive records in Laredo For one, a new average speed of 139.699 mph was set in a 30-day endurance covering over 100,000 These vehicles were with a sophisticated emission-control including a standard-specification maintenance-free filter. Independent testing subsequently by the TÜV (German inspection authority) confirmed despite the gruelling record-breaking the vehicles still met the current EU4 emission limits and the particulate was in perfect operating order, particulate emission levels comfortably within the EU4 limits

BLUETEC – the emission-control technology Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz A II 160 CDI 82 Hp

The Mercedes-Benz development have been advancing solutions for a number of years, one of the aims being to ensure with future emission in Europe, Asia and the USA. One of these activities is devising and economical methods for reducing oxides (denoxing). This for the cleanest diesel in the world is BLUETEC.

In order to bring all these technologies within a appropriate package, Mercedes-Benz is a graduated plan that the following phases:

Optimisation of the and their combustion processes to untreated emissions. This electronic engine management; valves per cylinder, third-generation direct injection with injectors, a turbocharger with a nozzle turbine and exhaust gas

Oxidising catalytic converters to emissions of carbon monoxide and unburned hydrocarbons (HC).

The filter, fitted as standard in all diesel passenger cars in countries since summer reduces particulate emissions by as as 98 per cent, thus easily the current EU4 particulate limits g/km). This technology ensures compliance with the US currently in force.

Nitrogen – whose concentration in the untreated from diesel engines is than in petrol engines due to the combustion process in diesel – are reduced to such an extent even the world’s most exhaust gas limits can be fulfilled. is where the BLUETEC technology in. The reduction is achieved either an advanced DeNOx storage converter and SCR catalytic converter, as in the Vision CLS 320 BLUETEC, or with the complex but even more AdBlue injection. The Selective Reduction (SCR) process the most effective method of gas aftertreatment currently available and nitrogen oxide levels to be by up to 80 per cent. The Mercedes-Benz engineers are the combination with AdBlue in the Vision GL 320 BLUETEC and are developing the for use as a standard system in passenger

The SCR process is based on the injection of the agent AdBlue into the gas stream. AdBlue is an aqueous solution that is carried in a tank. Since an average of 0.1 litres per 100 km (1 to 3 per cent of diesel is all that is required, the tank can be so that it only needs to be when service staff is out regular, scheduled maintenance. AdBlue is injected into the exhaust gas, ammonia (NH 3 ) is causing the nitrogen oxides to be into harmless nitrogen and in the downstream SCR catalytic converter. The factor in ensuring that the converter works extremely is precision metering of the AdBlue to the engine’s current operating Choosing which technological to use depends both on the vehicle concerned and on the required denoxing

BLUETEC already a success in vehicles

However, BlueTec is not altogether new. In Europe, it has been employed extremely in Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles a GVW over six tonnes. This has proved a resounding success in than 10,000 Actros, and Atego trucks. In this BLUETEC reduces the nitrogen levels considerably, meaning these vehicles already with the emission standards due to into force for trucks 2009. In Europe, the AdBlue network already comprises 1,500 filling points.

CLS 350 CGI – debut for innovative direct injection system

Following development work, Mercedes-Benz is now the world’s first petrol with spray-guided direct The 292 hp six-cylinder engine will go on the in the second half of 2006 in the In the European driving cycle, innovative injection technology Mercedes-Benz achieves fuel improvements of ten per cent over the efficient V6 petrol engine port injection and fully valve timing: the figures for the CLS 350 CGI are – 31.0 mpg. Thus has succeeded in combining a substantial in output with a significant in fuel economy.

This injection system is another technology from Mercedes-Benz. It much better fuel and thus also higher dynamic efficiency, than wall-guided direct injection The new system will form the for future engine development in this output class.

The new six-cylinder engine achieves combustion, which results in emissions. A further important of the CGI engine is stratified charge an operating mode during the engine is run with high air and thus excellent fuel Now, thanks to multiple it is for the first time possible to this lean-burn operating to higher rpm and load ranges During each compression a series of injections takes spaced just fractions of a apart. This has the effect of improving mixture formation, and fuel consumption. Where stratified charge operation was possible in the low part-load range, the new direct-injection engine can still in this lean-burn stratified at speeds in excess of 75 mph. driving on main roads and at largely constant speed and proper anticipation, the CGI engine the fuel economy of the six-cylinder with conventional injection by up to 15 per cent.

Effortless performance with excellent fuel

Low fuel consumption and excellent delivery are never at odds on the new direct petrol injection On the contrary, the engine delivers 20 hp power than the conventional-injection V6 and percent more torque.

the V6 combines its excellent fuel with a level of performance previously offered in the six-cylinder The CLS 350 CGI accelerates from 0 – 62 mph in just 6.7 and has an electronically governed top speed of 155 The key figures for the new CGI engine are:

With fuel consumption of – 31.0 mpg (NEDC combined the four-door Coupé has a range of 540 miles on one tank filling.

invention: outward-opening piezoelectric

The most important components of the spray-guided direct petrol system are the fast-acting, high-precision injectors, which are responsible for all the advances associated with pioneering combustion technology. The valves have injectors open outwards to create an gap just a few microns wide. gap shapes the fuel jet and produces a hollow cone-shaped spray The microsecond response times of the injectors provide the basis for multiple injections per compression and thus for lean-burn operation. By flexible and efficient control of the process they play a key in ensuring the engine’s outstanding efficiency.

With the aid of fluid simulations, the pistons have designed with special bowl geometry which the lean mixture in the area the spark plug and prevents it spreading out towards the cylinder The piston shape plays its in ensuring near-total combustion, low consumption and low emissions.

A high-pressure and downstream fuel rail and control valve are responsible for the fuel and regulating the quantity The peak fuel pressure in system is 200 bar – around 50 times the pressure in a conventional petrol system. The injection system features a water-cooled heat to cool the fuel.

Dual low engine-out emissions and high temperatures

The Mercedes-developed combustion featuring multiple closely injections on each compression also results in smoother and improved emissions performance. show that engine-out emissions in the warm-up phase are halved. Furthermore, since the and combustion processes can be actively it is also possible to raise in the exhaust manifold and thus catalytic converter warm-up. eleven seconds after from cold, the direct injection engine reaches an temperature of over 700 degrees Emissions are controlled by two close-coupled catalytic converters with oxygen sensor control, goes into operation after the engine starts cold.

To reduce nitrogen oxide Mercedes-Benz has adopted a two-part This comprises, firstly, electrically controlled and cooled gas recirculation which, depending on operating conditions, redirects up to 40 per of the exhaust gases back the cylinders. Secondly, it also two underfloor NOx adsorber catalytic Under lean operating these converters adsorb the oxides. Periodically, during regeneration pulses, the nitrogen are then desorbed, reacting other exhaust gas constituents to harmless nitrogen. Sensors and downstream of the catalytic converters their operation.

In addition, the new CGI also incorporates the same package of high-tech features as its counterpart. This includes cylinder heads, variable and exhaust camshaft timing, intake manifolds, balancer and intelligent thermal management an electronically controlled thermostat. The and cylinder heads are of aluminium and the and cylinder liners are of low-friction, resistant, lightweight aluminium-silicon

All fuel-carrying components of the CGI engine are of steel or brass; the rails in the of the two cylinder banks and the housing of the pump are of forged high-grade

The new CLS 350 CGI is designed to operate on sulphur-free premium fuel and its state-of-the-art gives it the potential to adapt to standards of the future. In Western the CLS direct petrol injection will replace the current CLS
