High Pressure Common Rail Anyone?

Posted by Becca Knight on April 17, 2019

Lee Jacobs, Global Product and Technical Product Director at Hartridge, recently released a publication in CAT magazine which highlights how high pressure common rail is currently at its peak volume within the aftermarket and the significant revenue opportunities that are available today for workshops and garages. 

He also explains how the in-depth technical knowledge previously required for diagnostics/repair has been incorporated into the Hartridge machine architecture coupled with an affordable price point opens this opportunity to more than just a specialist fuel systems workshop.

High Pressure Testing is Nothing Without Control

Posted by Lee Jacobs on March 18, 2019

The significant advancements in injector technology to meet the Euro 6 emissions legislation include increased fuel injection pressure, optimised nozzle spray angles and patterns to enhance combustion, and how many injections are possible per combustion cycle. However, another technical advancement that is not so well documented is closed loop electrical drive logic to provide accurate control during the injection event and digital rate shaping to configure the profile of the injected fuel during the combustion stroke.

Understanding this essential engineering concept is vital to unlocking true control of high pressure testing. So how has Hartridge responded to provide a leading aftermarket test solution and what advanced controls have been implemented to achieve this?

Common Rail Injector Coding & The Hartridge Mission

Posted by Lee Jacobs on February 12, 2019

The Hartridge mission, which we boldly accept, is to ensure that fuel injection components are tested according to OEM standards. We seek to do this to the highest criteria with the correct methods, even if these methods mean we can’t take a quick & easy path to providing workshops with what they need to achieve these OEM standards.

So for us CR injector coding; if it is to be done correctly, is simply a means of ensuring that an injector which passes the Hartridge test plan is then calibrated to perform as originally specified by the OEM.
