Related Terms

PARTICULATES

The residue left over from coal and fuel oil combustion.

FUEL INJECTOR PUMP

A plunger type pump designed to inject fuel at high pressure into the cylinder of diesel engines.

INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE

A prime mover in which the fuel is burned within the engine and the products of combustion serve as the thermodynamic fluid, as with gasoline and diesel engines.

PRE-MIXED FLAME

Before ignition, the fuel and air are intimately mixed. The combustion process is controlled by heat conduction and diffusion of radicals.

BURNER

A device which combines fuel and air in proper proportions for combustion and which enables the fuel-air mixture to burn stably to give a specified flame size and shape.

CIRCULAR BURNER

A fuel burner having a round opening.

INJECTION

  1. The method of applying a signal to an electronic circuit or device. 2. The process of introducing electrons or holes into a semiconductor so that their total number exceeds the number present at thermal equilibrium. 3. The introduction of fuel, fuel and air, fuel and oxidizer, water, or other substance into an engine induction system or combustion chamber.

INCOMPLETE COMBUSTION

The partial oxidation of the combustible constituents of a fuel.

OCTANE NUMBER

A rating that indicates the tendency to knock when a fuel is used in a standard internal combustion engine under standard conditions; n-heptane is 0, isooctane is 100; different test methods yield other values variously known as research octane, motor octane, and road octane.

DOWNDRAFT CARBURETOR

A carburetor in which the fuel is fed into a downward current of air.
