Grafic Fuel Tank Isolation Valve from Pierburg
Pierburg
New valves for fuel vapor retention in EVAP systems
Restraint systems for fuel vapors, so-called EVAP systems, are now common components of modern combustion engines. In today's hybrid vehicles, the fuel tank system is sealed off from the outside and so excess or negative pressure can build up. Yet in certain situations this pressure must be balanced out again. Pierburg has developed two new valves for this purpose: both the Fuel Tank Isolation Valve (FTIV) and the Fuel Vapor Valve (FVV) are based on a modular system.

Product family of electric coolant pumps for hybrid and electric motors
Especially in modern engines with electric or partially electric drivelines, the electrification of auxiliary units is unavoidable. In the course of this development, electrically driven coolant pumps show a broad performance spectrum: They can be used both for cooling conventional combustion engines and for fuel cell stacks of vehicles with fuel cells. Their non-reliance on the mechanical drive system also makes them ideal for hybrid and purely electrical applications. With a product family of electric coolant pumps in various performance ranges, auto-industry supplier Pierburg covers the entire spectrum of applications.
