Going Green

Aznew remanufactured fuel injectors save you money and protect the environment. Why? Because Aznew has the ability and the infrastructure to take old injectors, fully refurbish them, utilising only the parts that can be reused and make them new again.

Aznew is an environmentally friendly company. From our reconditioning process, our use of old injectors, the chemicals we use and our packaging we have taken the environmental impact into consideration. Add to that the fact that using our products helps your vehicle burn petrol more efficiently and cleanly, Aznew really is a product that helps the environment.

Reconditioning Injectors

Remanufacturing fuel injector’s gives an injector product numerous lives instead of just one, thereby saving on raw materials.

Better Emissions

Reconditioning fuel injectors brings them back to their optimum performance. This means the spray is more atomized, it delivers the correct amount of fuel and wont leak fuel into the engine. All of these improvements mean your engine burns fuel a lot cleaner and much more efficiently.

Landfill Space Conserved

Landfills are spared from the dumping of thousands of tons of injector casings, nozzles and filter baskets because of the monetary value the industry places on parts. This 'core charge' ensures parts are returned to be rebuilt.

Increased Fuel Economy

Replacing genuine injectors with Aznew remanufactured units usually results in increased fuel economy and reduced emissions. This is due to the high cost of replacing a singular injector with an OEM unit in comparison to replacing a full set with Aznew remanufactured units. Replacing the entire set in the event a single injector fails ensure consistent injector flow rates and optimum fuel atomization.

ALTERNATIVE FUELS AND FUEL DELIVERY

Diesel Fuel

The diesel powered internal combustion engine was invented by French-born Rudolf Diesel in 1894.  He tinkered with engine design, and using a modified version of a regular internal combustion engine he proved that the gas and air mixture in a cylinder could ignite without a spark.  He eventually made a four-stroke model, similar to today's diesels, with [theoretically] 75% efficiency, as opposed to the 10% efficiency of the widely used steam engine of the time.

The diesel-powered engine is similar to the petrol powered engine in that both use the principal of internal combustion, and also the fuels themselves both derive from oil.  The petrol engine cycle is the following: the intake of a petrol/air mixture, compression, and a spark ignites the compressed mixture; however, a diesel engine cycle is different, in that it first takes in only air, compresses the air, intakes fuel and the heat of the compressed air causes the ignition.  Therefore, higher compression ratios in the cylinders are required for more heat, leading to a more efficient but noisier engine.

Biodiesel Fuel

Transesterification, the essential process for making diesel fuel out of biomass, was used in the 1800's for its primary product, glycerin for soap.  It was also used exclusively in Rudolf Diesel's engine from the time he invented it until the 1920's, when modifications were made to the engine so that it could accept Number 2 diesel, a residue of petroleum.  People have made their own biodiesel for use in their engine since the 1970's, and it has become an increasingly popular alternative today.

Biodiesel is a diesel replacement fuel made from etherification of new and used vegetable and animal oils.  Biodiesel, just like ethanol and petroleum, can be blended with regular diesel fuel.  Blends of biodiesel and diesel up to B20 (20% biodiesel, 80% diesel) usually can be used in unmodified diesel engines with no problems.  Richer blends, even pure B100 biodiesel, can be used in some unmodified diesel engines, but the effect on the engine's durability is questioned by scientists.

Ethanol fuel

Ethanol is an alcohol fuel made by fermenting and distilling starch and cellulose crops, typically sugar.  In most petrol stations across the nation, the petrol is actually E10 (10% ethanol, 90% petrol).  Flexible Fuel Vehicles (FFVs) can run on E85 (85% ethanol, 15% petrol), pure petrol, or a mixture of the two.  Already, the V8 supercars and many other race cars use E85 giving improved emissions. The down side for E85 is you use about 47% more fuel than straight petrol.

Methanol

In 1661, a scientist named Robert Boyle distilled boxwood to be the first to ever isolate pure methanol. Methanol, which is composed of CH3OH, is an alcohol-based fuel, so it naturally has properties similar to ethanol.  It is colourless, volatile, light, flammable, and poisonous, and when combusted, the flame created is almost invisible, which makes it very dangerous.

Natural gas is usually used to create methanol.  The methane in natural gas is reacted with steam to produce carbon monoxide and hydrogen, which then, with the aid of a catalyst, react to form methanol.  Although other methods exist for creating methanol, such as using carbon, petroleum, or wood, natural gas works the best and it also abundant, which is why it is chosen.

Methanol isn't used as frequently because of its high risks.  If ingested, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin, it is metabolized and forms formic acid and formaldehyde, which are both known to cause blindness and death.  An example of this 'fear' of methanol can be shown by various companies selling methanol-powered laptops, which generate 5 to 10 times more power than regular lithium batteries. However, the companies themselves admit that because of the high danger of methanol, refilling the fuel is a "potentially tricky proposition."  Also, methanol fuel releases much more formaldehyde than petrol, which is what gives its exhaust a strong pungent smell.

Electricity

Electricity doesn't have to be converted, as mechanical power can be directly derived from it.  Most of the times electricity is provided by batteries, but other sources that can be used pertain to solar and wind technology.  Electricity is produced in power plants, and transmitted throughout the country through high voltage transmission systems, and then lowered and modified in order to distribute it to homes and businesses.

If they're designed well, electric cars can perform as well as conventional cars, in both speed and safety.  Sometimes, electric cars even have better acceleration rates at low speeds, due to the unique traits of their motor.  Of course, since it runs on a battery, it has absolutely no emission (exhaust), and also costs less than petrol, which makes it very economical.

The drawbacks to electricity are maintenance and replacement. Electric cars are designed to travel short distances, and are to be charged frequently (compared to other fuels).  The average distance an electric car can usually travel before having to be recharged is estimated at 60 kilometers.  The charging takes about 8 hours, but high-power devices can be used to lower that time to 2-4 hours.  In addition, the battery has to be completely replaced in three to six years.

Hybrid Cars

Hybrid petrol-electric cars have been developed since Ferdinand Porsche's model in 1899.  More modern and closer to today's cars, a 1972 Buick Skylark was turned into a working hybrid prototype by Victor Woulk to get better fuel efficiency with little downside.  The first hybrid actually developed for production was the Toyota Prius, which was released in Japan in 1997.

Petrol/electric hybrid cars use a complicated, computer controlled system that includes all the parts found in a typical petrol-powered car, but also the additions of a powerful electric motor, a generator, and a high-capacity battery.  The petrol engine and electric motor can power the car either by themselves, or together.  Under heavy acceleration when maximum power and torque is needed, both motors kick in.  At low speeds, the electric motor provides sole power, whereas at cruising speeds the petrol engine does most work.  Because of the nature of the electric motor, where is high torque at low motor speeds, it greatly benefits low-ending acceleration while the petrol engine has more ability at higher engine speeds and thus provides more power then.  A hybrid system is the "best of both world," combining petrol and electric power.

In order to squeeze out every kilometer per litre possible, hybrids tend to boast low drag coefficients and logically designed technology.  When a hybrid car is stopped, the petrol engine is turned off to save fuel, and started again when next needed.  If the battery is running low, the petrol engine can recharge it via the generator - therefore, no "plug in" as with electric cars is required.  Possible the most impressive feat, though, is that when the car is coasting or breaking (losing speed) the generator regains kinetic energy that would otherwise be lost and converts this energy into electricity to recharge the battery.

Natural Gas

In 1000 B.C., natural gas leaked from the earth's crust, and lightning strikes would ignite them, dazzling people who witnessed it, as they couldn't explain the phenomenon.  500 years later, the Chinese found a way to put the natural gas to use by creating pipes out of bamboo, and transporting the gas near sea water to boil it, and to separate the salt and water.

Today we have come a long way from that.  Extracting natural gas from gas wells, we now use it all over the world.  Natural gas is mostly made up of methane (70%-90%), with little amounts of ethane, propane, and butane (0%-20%), and traces of other gases such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and hydrogen.  It can be created by separation from crude oils, hydrocarbon condensates

Of all the various energy sources, natural gas happens to be one of the best, mainly because of its clean burning qualities, efficiency, and its safe reputation.  Although it is colourless, odourless, and shapeless, it is combustible, and releases a great magnitude of energy when ignited.  However, its most significant characteristic is its emission, which contains far less amounts of harmful by-products than regular petrol.

Direct fuel injection

Direct fuel injection is a fuel-delivery technology that allows petrol engines to burn fuel more efficiently, resulting in more power, cleaner emissions, and increased fuel economy.

Petrol engines work by sucking a mixture of petrol and air into a cylinder, compressing it with a piston, and igniting it with a spark; the resulting explosion drives the piston downwards, producing power. Traditional (indirect) fuel injection systems pre-mix the petrol and air in a chamber just outside the cylinder called the intake manifold. In a direct-injection system, the air and petrol are not pre-mixed; air comes in via the intake manifold, while the petrol is injected directly into the cylinder.

Combined with ultra-precise computer management, direct injection allows more accurate control over fuel metering (the amount of fuel injected) and injection timing (exactly when the fuel is introduced into the cylinder). The location of the injector also allows for a more optimal spray pattern that breaks the petrol up into smaller droplets. The result is more complete combustion -- in other words, more of the gasoline is burned, which translates to more power and less pollution from each drop of petrol.
