BMW 5 Series: Split cooling

A new development for the B58TU engine is the split cooling. A cooling concept which is used the N63 TU2.

The split cooling function uses the electric split cooling valve, eSCV, to enable on-demand decoupling of the crankcase from the coolant flow both in the warm-up phase and in partial load operation. In this situation, the coolant is exclusively routed through the cylinder head. The engine reaches its operating temperature more quickly in the warm-up phase, and can be operated with reduced emissions in partial load operation.

In split cooling, the cooling requirements for the crankcase and the cylinder head are managed by the electric split cooling valve. The fact that the engine reaches operating temperature more quickly again translates to substantial consumption and emission reductions.
