What is Electronically Controlled Common Rail Fuel Injection and what are its Benefits?

What is Electronically Controlled Common Rail Fuel Injection and what are its Benefits?

The steady increase in using engineering machinery in various industries, coupled with the huge demand for transport vehicles, has for many years been the main source of pollution. As the environment suffered from our desire to make everything easier and expand our industry to meet our consumer demands, engine manufacturers around the world have shifted their resources towards protecting the Earth. Countries around the world, as well as major industries, have started taking steps towards reducing their carbon emission. Among the most successful technologies implemented towards achieving this goal is the electronically controlled common rail fuel injection technology.

 

How Does This System Operate?

Carbon emission regulations became stricter for engines that power vehicles such as trains, ships, and various off-road vehicles. On top of that, users demanded more efficient and therefore more economic engines. Engineers went above and beyond to develop a fuel injection system that would prove both green and efficient. This is why some manufacturers have taken steps towards ensuring dangerous emissions were reduced as much as possible.

The fuel injection system is responsible for controlling clean fuel combustion. Its efficiency lies in precision, as this system injects the fuel in a precisely determined moment all while keeping the quantity of the fuel injected in check. This system that delivers the right volume at high pressure is also responsible for lowered fuel intake. This is why most companies immediately switched from the outdated injection method to electronically controlled common rail fuel injection.

The common rail that gives this system its name is designed to supply all the injectors in an engine with fuel. When the system is ready to inject fuel into the cylinders, it opens the appropriate nozzle. The fuel is then injected from the rail and into the combustion chamber. During this process, the fuel is atomized due to high pressure and mixed with the air. The precision and flexibility of the process are controlled electronically through a separate, electronic unit. The Electronic Fuel Injection system relies on this closed-loop system comprised of high-pressure pumps, sensors and the electronic control unit to deliver efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.

The Revolution You Were Looking For!

Even today, engineers are faced with the tough challenge of meeting the ever strict emission regulations, while at the same time acknowledging the customers’ demands for a fuel-efficient system. While this technology still has a lot of room for improvement, cylinder fuel combustion optimized through the revolutionary electronically controlled common rail fuel injection system combined with other breakthrough technologies is the advancement that satisfies both of these strict criteria. Clean and efficient combustion ensures that dangerous emissions are reduced and in some cases completely eliminated.
