Fuel injected into an engine under high pressure so that it atomizes as it leaves the nozzle.
The main funtions of a fuel injection system are:
- inject a measured quantity of fuel
- inject fuel at the correct time
- inject at a pre-determined rate
Air Injection System
Injects air and liquid fuel through the injection system.
To break up a liquid into extremely fine particles.
A pipe or header from which branch lines lead to each of the fuel valves in the different cylinder heads of a diesel engine and in which fuel is carried at high pressure, ready for delivery to each separate cylinder when the fuel valve is opened by a cam.
Individual Pump System
Uses separate metering and compression pump for each cylinder.
Solid Injection System
Injects only liquid fuel through the injectors.
