Delphi begins production of common rail technologies

ABR Staff Writer Published 06 September 2012

Delphi Automotive has started production of its common rail technologies for heavy-duty diesel fuel injection equipment.

According to the compant, the new technologies will meet the requirements of Euro VI and other global emissions standards.

The new systems offer three architectures for vehicle manufacturers that include conventional remote pump common rail (F2R) and two common rail systems with distributed pumps, F2E for overhead cam-driven pumps and F2P for pumps driven by a cam in the block.

The three architectures, working at about 2,700 bar, combine the capability of Delphi's EUI/EUP systems with the fuel delivery over the entire range of speed, timing and load that can be achieved with common rail.

Currently, Delphi offers systems that are capable of operating at about 3,000 bar, and is investigating higher pressures.

Delphi Diesel Heavy-Duty managing director David Friday said that between now and mid-2013, the company will be entering production with each of these three systems for customers launching ranges of new and revised engines from 9 to 16 liters.

"Delphi secured three contracts for these systems for a lifetime value expected to exceed EUR3.7bn," Friday said.

The company is planning to work on the next generation of ultra-high-pressure systems beyond 2020.
