Fuel Tank Design Considerations

Fuel Tank Sizing The fuel tank is typically one of the least expensive items in an installation, and it is wise to provide too much, rather than too little, storage capacity. However, while the minimum required capacities of fuel tanks … Continue reading

Fuel Storage Systems

Bulk fuel is usually stored in large main storage tanks and transferred to smaller auxiliary tanks (service tanks or day tanks) near engines by electric motor-driven pumps as shown in Figure 3. If auxiliary tanks are not necessary, the main … Continue reading

Diesel Fuel System Design Considerations

Diesel fuel supply systems must ensure continuous and clean supply of fuel to the engine’s fuel system. The recommended diesel fuel supply system typically has three major components: a fuel storage system, a fuel transfer system and a fuel filtration … Continue reading

Common Rail Fuel System

Unlike the MEUI fuel system, in a common rail fuel system injection pressure is created external to the unit injectors in a high-pressure fuel pump which is driven off the engine. The pump pressurizes a high-pressure fuel manifold that runs … Continue reading

HEUI Fuel System

The Hydraulically actuated Electronically controlled Unit Injectors (HEUI) use a hydraulic pump and engine oil to generate fuel injection pressure, and an ECM to control the pressure and amount of fuel injected into the cylinders. The operation of the HEUI … Continue reading

MEUI Fuel System

The Mechanically actuated Electronically controlled Unit Injectors (MEUI), formerly known as Electronic Unit Injectors (EUI), also use the engine camshaft and push rods to generate fuel injection pressure, but use an Electronic Control Module (ECM) to control the amount of … Continue reading

MUI Fuel System

The Mechanically actuated and controlled Unit Injectors (MUI) use the engine camshaft and push rods to generate fuel injection pressure, and a mechanical linkage system to control the amount of fuel injected into the cylinders. The mechanical linkage system connects … Continue reading
