Brushless fuel pump

  • 01-Jul-2011 02:34 EDT


An electrical brushless diesel fuel pump from Federal-Mogul offers improved durability to keep on- and off-highway heavy-duty vehicles working longer. Suitable for 12- and 24-V applications and available for diesel engines used in the construction, stationary, marine, and agricultural sectors, the fuel pumps lack brushes when transferring fuel from the tank to the injection system, reducing the wear accelerated by high-engine vibration and variations in diesel fuel. Electronic commutation drives the dc motor, and noncontact technology offers durability even when mounted directly on the engine. The pump's electrically driven design also reduces the load placed on the engine, improving fuel economy and reducing emissions. Other features include ease of installation and reduced maintenance expenses.
