A number of fuel handling applications that call for clarity, particularly for fuel filter bowls, have been successfully tested with resins. They also have advantages in fuel line fittings, fuel pumps, and in-tank components, among other fuel handling applications.
Recently, a family of rigid, thermoplastic polyurethanes (R-TPU) with characteristics that are well suited to the demands of gasoline handling applications was introduced.
A POM grade that is currently in development from Polyplastics has high acid resistance. Strong acids have historically been considered one of POM’s weaknesses, but this new substance offers considerable benefits.
The fuel system applications that the acid-resistant grade is intended for include cut-off valves, ORVR valves, and fuel pump module flange parts that are affixed to the outside of fuel tanks.
The Global Fuel Pump Resin Component Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
In order to produce injection-moulded automobile fuel system components, The Polyplastics Group has announced the development of numerous new DURACON polyoxymethylene (POM) grades that offer high flow, high stiffness, and design freedom.
The new materials add to Polyplastics’ industry-leading DURACON POM line, which is already well-known for its superior fuel resistance and is frequently used for automobile fuel system components.
To combat static electricity, Polyplastics has also created an electrically conductive grade for use in parts that surround fuel. Conductivity is typically added to resins to improve specific performance characteristics, such as toughness and flowability.
But this grade successfully imparts conductivity while preserving the vital performance characteristics of POM, such as flowability and toughness.
Engineers at Ferriot Contribute to the Development of a New Market Alternative for Gasoline Pump Nozzles. The OEM and Ferriot’s designers and engineers collaborated to select the ideal resins for optimal durability and cost effectiveness.
The partnership enabled Ferriot to develop and produce a tough plastic replacement for metal gas-nozzle boots. Additionally, Ferriot developed these components using the institutional expertise of its engineering team, satisfying the OEM’s performance requirements at a cheaper cost.
Ferriot developed the optimal complex structure to enhance the functionality of the OEM’s gas nozzle boots by working with straightforward polymers and using the appropriate resins.
The value of 3D printing for delivering these satellites to orbit affordably and with destination-orbit flexibility is being demonstrated by the collaboration between Launcher, a developer of high-performance rockets for small satellites, and Velo3D Inc., a leader in additive manufacturing (AM) for high-value metal parts.
As of right now, Launcher is collaborating with Velo3D to 3D print its fuel pump, flight turbine housing components, and Orbiter pressure tanks, the latter of which will be produced with the second Velo3D Sapphire metal AM machine.
