Engine Starting with New Pneumatically Controlled Ether Injection Systems 660016
The use of ethyl ether as an auxiliary fuel for starting diesel engines is discussed. With ether, ignition temperature requirements are substantially reduced and cranking requirements to reach temperature for combustion are severely reduced. The means of applying ether are traced up to the introduction of the aerosol pressurized can, and culminate in the spray priming system. This latter system is described in detail.
