EGR Valves

To reduce or eliminate the amount of smog-creating pollutants emitted during the combustion process, the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve recirculates a portion of the exhaust back through the process. This results in cooler combustion temperatures, which eliminates the formation of NOx emissions that contribute to air pollution.

Every Standard® EGR Valve is calibrated for precision performance. To ensure trouble-free operation, all Standard® EGR Valves must pass comprehensive quality testing, including computer-controlled bench testing for resistance, leakage, and response and flow rates.
