A new brand, PBST, has been established to market the air-management systems which were previously part of two MAN group companies.

Under the new name, customers will find a wide range of technologies for turbocharging and exhaust-gas treatment for a variety of applications in the various industry sectors, including marine.

In addition to turbochargers for aspirating engines, the product range includes electrical turbo blowers (ETB) and catalytic converters for selective catalytic reduction (SCR) for the purpose of exhaust-gas treatment. The technologies are available for high-speed engines as well as for medium- and low-speed applications.

The PBST brand combines the technological expertise of PBS Turbo, a Czech developer and manufacturer of turbochargers and exhaust-gas-treatment solutions with over 80 years' experience, with MAN Energy Solutions. PBS has been part of the MAN family since 1997.

“Under the PBST brand, we are bringing together the know-how of two experts to offer a unique range of air-management systems,” said Ralph Klaunig, Head of Sales & License Turbochargers & Exhaust Gas Treatment, PBST. “Our extensive product range covers all aspects of the process chain, from turbocharging to the exhaust-gas treatment of engines. This way, we can provide our customers with ideal solutions for increasing the efficiency of their engines while lowering emissions.”

PBST offers standard turbocharger sizes for two- and four-stroke engines, including the TCR series that is designed specifically for the requirements of liquid-fuel and gas engines. The recently-launched TCT series can increase the overall efficiency of two-stroke engines up to 80%. “We are also particularly proud of our EcoBoost two-stage turbochargers. With a total of more than 27 million customer operating-hours, we are the world leader in this regard," said Mathias Scherer André, Head of Sales Turbomachinery at MAN Energy Solutions.

The ETB series, as part of an exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR) system, increases the efficient utilisation of exhaust gases for recharging the engine. The ETB series offers the most cost-efficient blowers available on the market.

Scherer added: “Nowadays, high efficiency alone is not enough; emissions have to be minimized at the same time. This makes exhaust-gas treatment indispensable for engines. Our SCR systems reduce an engine's NOx emissions by up to 90% without any loss of efficiency.”
