Benefits of Jacobs CDA system
- Key technology for meeting upcoming emissions standards
- Fuel economy improvements through reduced pumping losses and friction
- Faster engine and aftertreatment system warm-up
- Improves combustion and fuel consumption in firing cylinders
- Improves emissions by keeping the aftertreatment system hot during low load operation
- Minimizes cooling of aftertreatment during coasting
- Hydraulically actuated mechanism integrates into pushrod, rocker, or bridge
- Modular with High Power Density® (HPD®) and compression release engine brake technology
- The mechanism is capable of individual cylinder control and is dynamically switchable between cylinders
- An optional feature of Jacobs® Lost Motion VVA
How Jacobs’ CDA works
Cylinder Deactivation leverages Jacobs’ well-established componentry to disable engine valves in selected cylinders allowing a large engine to have the fuel economy of a smaller engine. Also, higher exhaust temperatures in operating cylinders maintain aftertreatment temperatures at low load conditions and start-up. Cylinder Deactivation can be utilized in diesel engines as well as gasoline, natural gas, and ethanol-fueled engines.
CDA in Action
Cylinder Deactivation is just one of the technologies on Jacobs latest demonstration vehicle which will be touring the U.S.
