Continental presents a new generation of piezo injectors for common-rail diesel

Piezo technology makes diesel engines efficient, clean and quiet. And Continental now has the answer to the increasing environmental demands being imposed on the diesel engine. At the 29th Vienna International Engine Symposium, the Powertrain Division presented a new piezo injector with direct drive and closed-loop needle control, opening the way for engine developers to further reduce consumption and emissions. As Wendelin Klügl, Senior Vice President, Powertrain System & Technology points out, "when considering the overall cost of engine production, the new injector offers further potential savings by simplifying other emissions-related components such as sensors and control algorithms". He added: "even vehicles in higher weight categories will now meet the Euro 6 emissions standard without nitrogen oxide aftertreatment."
