Common Rail

Affordable Technologies as recognised specialists in the sales, service and repair of all electronic diesel technologies offer a comprehensive “common rail” diesel injection system service. Originally developed in 1987 by Magneti Marelli, common rail technology was acquired by the Fiat Company who further developed the system to on vehicle testing in 1992; from 1994 to 1997 the Bosch Group provided the development and industrialisation of the technology for mass production initially into the light/passenger vehicle markets.’Common Rail’ is the fastest growing development in high-speed diesel engine technology, The market has exceeded 10 million units from Bosch alone, with producers like Denso, Delphi and Siemens developing highly competitive alternative options, engine and vehicle manufactures are supplying common rail as standard. Briefly the technology can be described as high pressure pump which supplies fuel to a small accumulation tank or Common rail at pressures up to 1800 bar or 26000 PSI, the (constant) high pressure fuel in the rail is always available to supply the electronic injectors to satisfy the engines demand for the precisely metered and timed injection events, both the high pressure pump and injectors are controlled by the engines ECM (electronic control module) which is capable of controlling two and even three injection events for up to 20 cylinder power cycles per second. Typically, common rail systems are very complex and can be very expensive to repair. Affordable Technologies has range of the latest repair, testing and calibration equipment we are able to recondition and repair common rail injectors and high pressure pumps often as an alternative to replacement with new expensive (and overpriced) OEM components.We test individual injectors against the manufactures RE specifications to establish their operational performance. Often we find that only one or two injectors in a set require reconditioning/servicing, with considerable cost savings. Affordable Technologies hascommon rail solutions to deliver improved drivabilty, fuel efficiency, reliability and affordability.
