1920s-1930s: Cummins fuel pump goes into production
1940s: Cummins PT (Pressure-Time) injector developed
1950s – 1980s: PT fuel systems used throughout the Cummins product line
Cummins’ First Electronically Controlled Fuel System – CELECT Commences Production
Developed High Pressure Injection System (HPI)
Established a global strategic partnership with Scania, Sweden
Cummins CAPS fuel system goes into production
Cummins Common Rail Fuel System (CCR) started production
Ultra-high pressure injection system (XPI) developed in cooperation with Scania, Sweden
The CELECT fuel system is Cummins’ first electronically controlled unit fuel injection system. It was introduced in 1990 and is now mainly used in Cummins 11-liter M-series and 14-liter N-series engine platforms. The CELECT system is cam actuated to provide higher injection pressures.
The High Pressure Injection (HPI) system is an electronically controlled unit fuel injection system for heavy duty diesel engines (9-15 liters), currently mainly used in Cummins 15 liter and Scania 12 liter diesel engines.
The High Horsepower High Pressure Injection (HHP HPI) system, similar to the Heavy Duty High Pressure Injection (HPI) system, is also an electronically controlled unit fuel injection system for diesel engines with displacement ranging from 6 cylinders/19 liters to 18 cylinders/78 liters.
The Cummins Common Rail Fuel Pump (CCR) is mainly used in small and medium diesel engines (below 9 liters) to replace the previous pump nozzle fuel system (PLN), which can realize high pressure direct injection on small engines. Compared with other products of the same type, the CCR system can control the fuel injection volume more precisely, thereby reducing engine emissions and fuel consumption, and improving fuel economy. Currently, the main supporting models are Cummins 8.9-liter L-series and 8.3-liter C-series diesel engines.
The ultra-high pressure injection (XPI) system is the latest product of Cummins fuel system, developed and manufactured by Cummins and Scania of Sweden. Compared with other common rail fuel systems, XPI can provide higher injection pressure and is currently mainly used for Cummins medium-duty and Scania heavy-duty engines.
Based on the XPI platform technology and combined with the needs of the Chinese local market, Cummins fuel system has designed and developed a complete set of electronically controlled fuel systems for Dongfeng Cummins Engine Co., Ltd. competencies required by regulations.
