The Design and Development of a New Range of Small Industrial Diesel Engines 901569
A completely new range of air and water cooled diesel engines have been designed and developed by Lister-Petter Ltd. for the 5 kW to 30 kW industrial engine market.
Changes to the Company organisation required to meet the demanding cost and time objectives are described. The design philosophy used for the major components is discussed, highlighting those areas where cost savings were achieved without compromising quality or reliability.
Two alternative combustion systems are offered on the water cooled engine range and the paper discusses the merits of direct and indirect injection combustion systems.
