Loccioni Group is participating at the IMechE (Institution of Mechanical Engineers) Conference on 14th and 15th March 2012, with its innovative system for Injector testing: the Spray Momentum.
The IMEchE is the fastest growing professional engineering institution in the UK. With almost 98,000 members the institution works at the heart of the UK’s most important and dynamic industries.
With a 160-years heritage it is a forward-looking, campaigning organization. By working with leading companies, universities and think tanks, it is able to create and share knowledge to provide government, businesses and the public with fresh thinking and authoritative guidance on all aspects of mechanical engineering.
About the Conference
The ‘Fuel Systems for IC Engines’ Conference will focus on the latest technology for state-of-the-art system design, characterisation, measurement, and modelling, addressing all technological aspects of diesel and gasoline fuel injection systems.
This will range from fundamental fuel spray theory, component design, to effects on engine performance, fuel economy and emissions.
About Loccioni’s Spray Momentum
The Loccioni Group will present the Spray Momentum a new innovative system for the inspection of the spray analysis of the Injectors.
In particular, nozzle geometry plays a fundamental role in order to abide by the more and more stringent legislation for engine emissions due its influence on: internal flow, cavitations phenomenon, spray characteristics and therefore the atomization process. All the mentioned factors are significant for both engine performance and pollutant emissions.
By simultaneously determining Spray Momentum flux and mass flow rate, it is possible to calculate the velocity in the outlet section of the nozzle hole.
Spray Momentum measuring allows to calculate several key parameters of a spray: Maximum Momentum, Max Atomization, Distance of max atomization, Direction of jet axis and Tip speed of jet.
