HGV Remapping

What Is The Opti Combustion Process?

Opti is the name given to a dramatic upgrade and rebuild of diesel-powered trucks, generators, boats, or locomotive diesel engines that utilise racing engine gapless ring technology for cleaner and more efficient combustion.

Lowering Exhaust Emissions From HGVs

Using ceramic coating applied to piston crowns, gapless piston rings with lower friction, creates less blowby and better burning to extract more torque and horsepower from the same amount of fuel.

This results in:

  • Double the life of lubricating oil; used engine oil from a diesel engine is usually black, this is soot from fuel burn blowby with normal piston rings.
  • Better fuel economy to the tune of 15-20% as power is kept above the piston crown where it does the best.
  • Higher horsepower and torque at lower revs-per-minute with the turbocharger starting up earlier in the rev band.
  • Substantially lower PM, HC, and NOx emissions resulting in less AdBlue usage, less carbon into the EGR system and less DPF regenerations needed.
  • Quieter and smoother running with a new sustainable life for an old engine.
  • Around 80 degrees C lower exhaust temperatures, ideal for military applications with lower smoke and exhaust opacity.

Opti Combution

Some of the theories behind how piston rings are vital to racing engine combustion can be gained from watching Richard Hammond’s video about Formula One engines below.

With Opti Combustion, we take this is a practical level with commercial diesel engines unleashing a revolution in power and emissions reduction for your operation!
