  • Patent number: 10781740
    Abstract: An exhaust system, especially for an internal combustion engine in a vehicle, includes at least one sensor carrier unit (20) carried on an exhaust gas-carrying element (14). The sensor carrier unit (20) includes a sensor carrier element (22) fixed to the exhaust gas-carrying element (14).

  • Publication number: 20190301347
    Abstract: An exhaust system includes a mixer assembly unit (26a) with a mixer body (48a) with an incoming flow side (58a) and with an outflow side (60a) and with a plate shaped carrier element (24a) with a radially outward carrier element body (44a). The mixer body includes a plurality of flow deflection elements (62a) and a holding area (70a). The carrier element includes a counter-holding area (46a) connected in substance to a holding area. The mixer assembly unit is arranged in a junction area of two tubular exhaust gas guide elements (14a, 16a). The exhaust gas guide elements include flange shaped coupling sections. The carrier element body is arranged between the flange shaped coupling sections of the exhaust gas guide elements. A coupling element engages the flange shaped coupling sections and extends over the coupling sections on axial sides oriented facing away from one another radially inwards.

  • Publication number: 20180100422
    Abstract: A mixer assembly unit, especially for an exhaust system of an internal combustion engine of a vehicle, includes a mixer body (48) with an incoming flow side (58) and with an outgoing flow side (60); and a carrier element (24) with a carrier element body (44) enclosing the mixer body (48) radially on an outside in relation to a mixer longitudinal axis. The mixer body (48) includes a plurality of flow deflection elements (62) and at least one holding area (70). The carrier element (24) includes a counter holding area (46) in association with a holding area (70). The counter holding area (46) is connected in substance to the holding area (70). The counter holding area (46) overlaps the holding area (70) at least partly radially on a side oriented in a direction of the outgoing flow side (60) of the mixer body (48).

  • Patent number: 8302732
    Abstract: A silencer, particularly rear silencer, for an exhaust system of a combustion engine, particularly of a motor vehicle, has a housing in which an outlet chamber is located. An outlet pipe arrangement leads out of the housing which on the inlet side is fluidically connected to the outlet chamber. A particularly compact design can be realized if the outlet pipe arrangement is configured as pipe-in-pipe arrangement including at least one deflection pipe closed on one side and arranged in the housing and an outlet pipe led out of the housing.

  • Patent number: 8205713
    Abstract: A silencer for an exhaust system, more preferably of a motor vehicle, is provided with a silencer insert arranged in a silencer housing. The silencer includes a jacket, with at least one pipe section penetrating a through-opening of the jacket. Through welding of the pipe section to the silencer insert a weld seam formed pressure-tight between pipe section and jacket is relieved of mechanical load.

  • Patent number: 7874401
    Abstract: An exhaust muffler (1) is provided for an at least partly dual-flow exhaust system of an internal combustion engine, especially of a motor vehicle. The exhaust muffler has a housing (2), which encloses an interior space (3), with two exhaust pipes (6), through which exhaust gas can flow in parallel, and which are each led through the interior space (3), and which have a side opening (8) each within the housing (2). A neck body (9) connects the two side openings (8) of the exhaust pipes (6) in a communicating manner to form a Helmholtz resonator with the interior space (3) of the housing (2), which interior space (3) acts as a resonance volume (12).
