IS YOUR CAM OUTDATED?

REDUCE EMMISSIONS Up To 30%

REDUCE FUEL USAGE 10% or More

 

THE ROLE OF THE CAM IN MIXING AIR AND FUEL

The importance of the cam for mixing air and fuel cannot be ignored. Though other factors contribute to the engine's mixing efficiency, the cam is the primary flow control device. The OEM cam configuration in many engines can be improved, leading to significant savings in fuel economy, lower NOx emissions and longer engine life.

 

 

CHANGING THE CAM IMPROVES MIXING

Our fundamental design objectives:

  • inject the total charge of fuel into the intake cycle as early as possible
  • increase the fuel pressure, which increases the flow velocity
  • shorten the duration of the fuel lobe, which adjusts for the increased flow velocity

Additionally, analyzing the intake airflow rates, timing and quantities can identify the need to increase the intake velocity. Having both an earlier fuel injection and a higher air velocity can produce a more homogeneous air/fuel mixture. When this formula is correct, mixing is optimized. The benefits include:

  • Improved Fuel Economy
  • Lower NOx Emissions
  • Longer Engine Life (by lowering deviations in peak firing pressures)
