Fuel injection is a key component in automotive engine design and efficiency. Injector system design, including state of the art direct injection systems, determines droplet size of fuel delivery. This droplet size, specifically a parameter known as the Sauter Mean Diameter, aids in determining combustion efficiency of the engine and ensures meeting current fuel efficiency standards.
Malvern provides spray characterization instruments used to study fuel spray devices to enable for better, more efficient engines of the future.
Characterizing the spray properties of fuel sprays can help:
- Improve engine efficiency.
- Optimize combustion.
- Meet updated government standards.
- Design the fuel injection systems of the future.
