Stanadyne launched two new fuel systems that offer a differentiated approach for small engines to meet BS VI emissions at Auto Expo 2018. The Gasoline Pumping Injector (GPI) and Solenoid Controlled Unit Pump (SCUP) were developed as cost-effective replacements for mechanical systems in two- and three-wheeler applications, and enable manufacturers to meet India’s new emission norms.
The GPI is an integrated pump and injector that fits in the footprint of the mechanical carburettors commonly used on small gasoline engines today. The SCUP is an electronically controlled unit pump that offers precise timing and fuel delivery control and is an alternative to diesel common rail technology.
Commenting on the launch, Sanjay Chadda, Managing Director for Stanadyne Near East, said, “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. 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,” said 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 withstand harsh operating conditions and low-lubricity fuels. The high-pressure pumps are available in two or four plunger configurations and sized for engines up to 16 litres.
“With manufacturing facilities strategically placed across the globe, Stanadyne is committed to enabling the next generation of clean and fuel-efficient engines,” said Dr John Pinson, President, Chief Technology Officer, Stanadyne. “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.”
