Developing and producing customized injection systems for large engines is what we do best. Every solution represents a unique design response to individual customer requirements. One complete system – one solution. With all components perfectly matched: injection, electronics and turbocharging. Leading engine manufacturers worldwide have trusted in our expertise for decades. The results our customers worldwide capitalize on include reduced exhaust and noise emissions, lower fuel consumption, outstanding reliability and durability.
Woodward high speed diesel engine control systems are tested and proven in the market to provide high efficiency and low emission control in genset, combined heat and power (CHP), light rail, inland and small coastal marine vessels, mine trucks, and fracking applications. Our systems of common rail injectors/pumps, high-temp wastegate valve/actuators, and modular digital engine controls drive globally common rail diesel engines from 1MW to 3MW at speed range of 1500 to 1800 rpm.
CUSTOMIZED INJECTION SYSTEM SOLUTIONS
Our goal is to set new standards – again and again – in terms of quality, durability, fuel consumption and emissions. Close collaboration with our customers is the cornerstone of a technological development process that we call “Injectioneering”. It allows development times to be shortened, later changes to be avoided, while optimizing the coordination of development and production. The result is a perfectly customized product that enables you to secure and expand your technological and business advantage.
Today’s high-quality large engines rely increasingly on common-rail fuel injection. Thanks to many years of experience and expertise in developing and manufacturing such injection systems, Woodward L’Orange has acquired an outstanding reputation. Common-rail solutions deliver the highest precision to guarantee the lowest emissions. With their robust design, the highest lifetime expectations can be reached. They can be customized to every application’s unique requirements. And finally, they are made for remanufacturing to save costs and protect the environment.
HIGH PRESSURE PUMPS
Pumps which are used for the injection of fuels into diesel engines rank among the technically most demanding members in the family of pressure generators. Our pumps are characterized by expertise developed over decades in terms of helices (in the case of conventional pump-line-nozzle systems), component coatings, sealing elements or valve engineering. The same design base is the take-off point for all common-rail pumps from high-speed to 2-stroke engines. Modular design allows the simple adaptation to specific customer applications. We deliver mechanical PLN pumps for all 4-stroke engine sizes and all fuel types: MDO, HFO, Bio-fuel, Orimulsion, among others.
Large Engine Control Module (LECM)
The LECM provides a single-box, engine-mountable control unit built with Extensive I/O and Ethernet. This control scheme uses a modular approach for both the electronic control modules and the software. These modules (Main, Aux and EID) can be mixed and matched to address different applications need (Gas, Dual Fuel and Diesel). The flexibility of EID module allows the 20 output channel to be configured as injection or ignition driver for Gas, diesel Common Rail or micro-pilot injection, and ignition applications. The 24 channel analog inputs of the Aux module can be configured as a pressure, knock, or Thermocouple depending on the application need.
Wastegate Valve Actuator
Woodward’s Glo-Tech II hot valve systems are high-temperature butterfly valves mated with a high performance R-Series electric actuator used to regulate high-temperature gasses in turbocharged reciprocating engines. Optimal for use in applications in wastegates, exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), compressor recirculation (bypass), waste heat recovery (WHR), and exhaust throttles. From 40mm to 150mm valve sizes and operating temperatures from 400 °C to 650 °C, customer have relied on Woodward’s decades of hot valve experience with high-torque, low-current, high resolution valve positioning.
The power and character of an internal combustion engine is determined by the addition of turbocharging. A turbocharger compresses the air so that more air flows into the combustion chamber. More fuel is burned and the engine's power output is increased. The turbocharger is driven by exhaust gas, which makes turbocharged engines very efficient. Our cutting-edge turbocharger solution results in more power, lower fuel requirements and reduced emissions.
