Fuel Pump Optimization
A nationally renowned racing team wanted to measure fuel pump performance. They wanted to determine if they could reduce the power consumption of the pump through special tuning. Interface helped them integrate a T25 Rotary Torque Transducer into their pump drive to directly measure power consumption at the pump in order to optimize performance. As a result the customer was able to characterize the fuel pump performance vs. the drive line torque. Using the data, the fuel pump was tuned to minimize the required drive torque while maintaining the required pressure and flow for proper fuel delivery.
