DENSO develops DCR fuel injection system
DENSO Corp. has developed a diesel common rail (DCR) fuel injection system with an injection pressure of 2,500 bar.
Based on DENSO’s research, the new system can help increase fuel efficiency by up to 3% while also reducing particulate matter (PM) by up to 50% and nitrogen oxides (NOx) by up to 8% compared to DENSO’s previous generation system.
The new DCR system will launch-to-market later this year on passenger, commercial, agricultural and construction vehicles worldwide for diesel common rail fuel injection systems composing injector, fuel pump and common rail.
“Our new diesel common rail system will help increase fuel efficiency and meet exhaust emissions standards that are becoming increasingly stringent around the world, particularly in Europe, Japan and the United States,” says Yukihiro Shinohara, executive director responsible for DENSO's Diesel Engine Business Unit.
