A Study on Rolling Contact Fatigue of Silicon Nitride Ceramics Roller of Supply Pump for Diesel Injection System 2004-01-1450
To meet diesel emission regulations, high injection pressure is demanded for the supply pump of electronically controlled common-rail type injection system. DENSO has produced common-rail type injection system in 1999. Cam and roller to generate high pressure in the supply pump at the system are composed of steel and silicon nitride ceramics, and are rolling contact under light oil lubrication. Therefore, rolling contact fatigue failure had been concerned. In order to assure the components, we estimated the influence on the materials and the lubrication on the rolling fatigue strength of silicon nitride ceramics, the contact fatigue life was tested under oil lubrication.
