to meet the significant market challenges faced by automakers around the world,
Delphi Automotive is launching a new family of Diesel Common Rail systems
including diesel solenoid injectors,
fuel pumps, Engine Control Units (ECU) and rails for light- and medium-duty
to a company statement, the new family of technologies, which will be available
later this year on a new engine of a major European car manufacturer, was
introduced during the 35th annual International Vienna Motor Symposium, held
May 8-9, 2014 at the Congress Center in Hofburg, Austria.
new high-performance, modular family of Diesel Common Rail Systems will help
car manufacturers improve fuel efficiency,” said John Fuerst, president Delphi
Diesel Systems, adding, “Our engineers’ innovative concepts are dedicated to
assisting our customers in meeting increasingly strict emissions standards,
while maintaining the performance levels consumers expect.”
modular approach for its common rail systems allows robust design with a range
of performances matching different engine needs. Integrated, innovative
features offer new perspectives to diesel engine design and performance.
Delphi’s approach, the OEMs won’t need to modify their engines to fit Delphi
systems. The modular approach utilised for the development helps engine
manufacturers to integrate the technologies in their engine family with the possibility
to optimise the injection performance in the same environment,” explained
new family of diesel fuel injection equipment offers improved performance
through injection pressure increased up to 2,500 bar; leakage reduction; and
increased multiple injection optimization, as the fuel injectors are capable of
up to nine injections per cycle. These innovations translate into better
injection control and better combustion, therefore reducing fuel consumption,
CO2 and other emissions.
fuel efficiency that diesel engines offer allows them to successfully penetrate
both the passenger and commercial vehicles. “Their best-in-class fuel economy
will continue to ensure diesel engines are a popular choice across Europe and
in many other markets,” said Fuerst.
of Delphi’s new Diesel Common Rail systems family include:
fuel consumption and CO2 emissions through improved combustion; weight
reduction; and hydraulic, mechanical and electrical efficiency
and flexible solutions through simpler, modular component features and
to drive and reliable through low combustion noise; high performance and
worldwide diesel fuel robustness.
