“GPI and SCUP technology was
developed for the Indian market to offer the country’s manufacturers a way to
seamlessly transition engines into an era of cleaner power and energy,” says
Sanjay Chadda, Managing Director for Stanadyne Near East, adding that “Aside
from addressing India’s upcoming emissions requirements, the GPI has the
capability to serve the global market as well.”
With manufacturers working to
meet 2019/2020 emissions requirements of small diesel and gasoline engines,
Stanadyne’s GPI and SCUP offer alternative low-cost solutions that require
fewer engine modifications compared to more complex systems like port fuel
injection and diesel common rail.
“This technology (GPI and
SCUP) is designed to fit in the footprint of today’s mechanical systems; which
gives them a direct advantage over the other options in the market, which would
require manufacturers to make major design changes to their engines,” says
Jayabalan S, Senior General Manager of Application Engineering.
Showcased along with GPI and
SCUP at the Auto Expo are Stanadyne’s other diesel and gasoline fuel systems -
Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) pumps and Diesel Common Rail (DCR) systems –
which marks these product’s inaugural exhibition in India, though Stanadyne has
been manufacturing products in the country for nearly 20 years.
Stanadyne’s GDI technology is
designed primarily for 3-cylinder and above passenger-vehicle engines and is
among the world’s fastest-growing fuel systems to improve gasoline fuel
economy. Stanadyne developed the world’s first 200 bar GDI pump for the
automotive market in 2006.
Stanadyne’s DCR technology is
designed to be robust to the harshest operating conditions and low-lubricity
fuels. The high-pressure pumps are available in two or four plunger configurations
and sized for engines up to 16L.
“With manufacturing facilities
strategically placed across the globe, Stanadyne is committed to enabling the
next generation of clean and fuel-efficient engines,” said Stanadyne President,
Chief Technology Officer Dr. John Pinson.
“Solving the unique regional challenges faced by our customers with
tailor-made products is part of our company philosophy -– the technology in our
GPI and SCUP products is an ideal example of this,” he said.
