Ahead of the Curve: The Gasoline Pumping Injector

At Stanadyne, we use advanced technology to face modern challenges every day. Whether it’s in business or technology, staying ahead of the curve is essential. It is our commitment to innovation that helps customers overcome their biggest tasks in an environment that is changing more rapidly than ever. Our most recent technology breakthrough is an example of this; and it starts with our solution to a modern engine challenge for two-wheeled vehicles in India.

Gasoline Pumping Injector

2018 is a pivotal year in the transportation industry. Many countries are migrating towards more stringent emissions norms and the demand for low-emission engines is growing faster than ever before. India is transitioning to BS VI emission regulations in 2019, and with this change, many of today’s two-wheel vehicles need an engine update to comply with the new standard. With more than 17 million two-wheel vehicles sold in India every year, manufacturers are moving quickly to stay in the market.

In order to meet BS VI emissions, an update of the fuel management system, shifting away from less efficient carburetor designs towards lower-emissions alternatives is required. One of these alternatives is port fuel injection. Of course, a shift of this magnitude comes at a price. Port fuel injection systems take up space, and on small vehicles such as motorbikes, installing such a system would be costly and time-consuming. With the impending change to BS VI, manufacturers are limited on time and are under pressure to find a better solution.

In response to this challenge, Stanadyne has developed an innovative solution to replace mechanical carburetors using a simple, fully electronic Gasoline Pumping Injector (GPI). In the GPI, the pump and injector are integrated into a single unit, making the system compact and cost-efficient. The GPI’s revolutionary design offers an alternative option to mitigate engine emissions, enabling manufacturers to meet the 2020 deadline more cost-effectively.

The Stanadyne GPI provides precise injection timing and controllability, a critical factor in reducing emissions.  Since the GPI is a pump and injector in a single unit, its design eliminates the need for an in-tank feed pump and allows for easy integration with existing engines.  Stanadyne is working with several customers to get GPI systems on the road for 2020 and beyond.

At Stanadyne, we are constantly analyzing the problems faced by today’s engine manufacturers, applying years of industry experience to create customized solutions that address the most complex challenges facing fuel systems. This is how we stay ahead of the curve, developing solutions today for the engines of tomorrow.

Global Need for GDI Accelerates as Demand Grows for Greater Fuel Efficiency and Environmentally-Conscious Applications

Detroit, Mich. (April 10, 2018) – The global market for gasoline direct injection (GDI) fuel systems will reach $13 billion by 2026*, making it the fastest growing fuel system technology for the next decade.

Stanadyne, a fuel injection systems developer headquartered in Windsor, Connecticut with auto clients worldwide highlighted its recent GDI successes and design challenges during a white paper presentation at SAE International’s WCX World Congress Experience, April 10 in Detroit.

“New challenges in pump design continue to emerge as engines become smaller and more powerful in response to fuel economy and regulatory trends,” said Stanadyne President and Chief Technology Officer Dr. John Pinson during his presentation, Advances in Gasoline Direct Injection Fuel Pump Technologies.  “The demand for gasoline direct injection (GDI) systems is growing around the globe as manufacturers push for fuel efficiency, performance, and cost-effective regulatory compliance. GDI system design poses unique challenges to achieve these benefits with cost-effective, quiet and flexible product designs.”

Stanadyne produces customized and right-sized GDI pumps with flexible packaging for reduced mass and a broad operating pressure range. Stanadyne’s GDI pumps also feature QuietTech™, a patented control valve technology for quiet pump operation.

“GDI fuel systems are at the heart of the modern automotive engine,” says Dr. Pinson. “At the heart of our approach is providing breakthrough technology that is optimized for the application.”

Stanadyne has manufacturing facilities in the U.S. Italy, India, China and the UAE, with more than one million GDI pumps produced each year.
