  • Patent number: 5697217
    Abstract: A turbocharged diesel engine has a two-stage turbocharger assembly comprising two low-pressure turbochargers coupled in parallel arranged in series with a single high-pressure turbocharger. This allows all turbochargers to be of comparable dimensions and allows for interchangeability of parts. The turbochargers may be mounted on an enclosure which encloses the turbines and the exhaust gas duct work and which communicates with the exhaust pipe to ensure that any leaking exhaust gas escapes to the atmosphere via the exhaust pipe.
