Intensifier-injector for Natural Gas Fueling of Diesel Engines 921553

Impending Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations will place severe limits on exhaust emissions of heavy duty diesel engines for urban bus and highway truck applications. To meet this challenge an intensifier-injector system for natural gas fueling of diesel engines is being developed. The intensifier-injector concept employs electronically-controlled, late-cycle, direct injection of high-pressure natural gas with a pilot quantity of diesel fuel. Preliminary performance and emissions data are presented to indicate the potential for diesel engine efficiencies with reduced emissions with this method of natural-gas fueling.
