Like many other modern four-strokes it has a lift pump that cycles on and off feeding fuel into the system, which then feeds a second high-pressure fuel pump.
For example, on a passenger car application using a common rail injection system, it is possible to use an electric lift pump built into the primary fuel filter/water separator to supply fuel to a high-pressure pump via the main filter.
The new dual lift pump station and reservoir is located at 64th Avenue and Picadilly Road.
Working in concert with a fuel pressure sensor that's located on the Fuel Manager's lift pump housing, PWM allows us, for example, to command low pressure during start-up/cranking and to provide very precise higher pressures during operation," explained Mills.
These include: a transparent bowl or a "water-in-fuel" electronic control feature to monitor water separated from the fuel by the filter element's high performance water separation; an integrated electric lift pump with auto-regulation of the outlet pressure to supply the injection pump with a controlled inlet fuel pressure; 4-port filter headers that allow Sisu Diesel to simply install the same filter and pre-filter units in different ways to meet various engine layout configurations and room availability.
SISU Diesel, which makes diesel engines for a variety of tractor and industrial manufacturers, will equip virtually all of its engines with Fuel Manager units serving as both a pre-filter (primary) and final (secondary) filter/water separator, with many of the pre-filter systems featuring Stanadyne's combined lift pump and filter assembly.
