With increasing global pressure to adhere to uniform emission standards, demand for aftermarket automotive fuel injectors is experiencing strong growth around the world as sales are projected to exceed 54.2 million units by 2010 according to industry estimates.
The TURBO 3000D VADA works to improve atomization by creating a change in the travel pattern of the fuel, prior to the fuel injector. TURBO 3000D VADA provides the fuel injector with an efficient delivery of fuel which minimizes the effects of temperature, viscosity and rapid load change factors that can cause fuel to stream rather than atomize when exiting the fuel injector.
Within its CELECT fuel injector, the company incorporated a metering plunger made from Mg-PSZ, a re-engineered magnesia with partially-stabilized zirconia specifically tailored for the application.
