Working Of a Rotor Type Fuel Injection Pump!

Fuel Injection PumpFuel Injection Pump

An Injection Pump is the device that pumps diesel into the cylinders of a diesel engine. Traditionally, the injection pump is driven indirectly from the crankshaft by gears, chains or a toothed belt that also drives the camshaft. As the heart of the engine, the injection pump delivers fuel and maintains a rhythm or timing that keeps the engine running smooth.

The injection pump does the job of both the throttle and the ignition system needed in gasoline engines.  In gasoline engine, the air is mixed with fuel and the combined substance gets compressed by pistons where the explosion is ignited by a spark. In a diesel engine on the other hand, air is compressed first which causes the air to heat up. Then the fuel is injected, which ignites the explosion.

This video, explains about the working of a rotor type fuel injection pump with the help of an animation.
