Title: (EN) Common fuel rail fuel system for locomotive engine
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A common rail fuel injection apparatus (1) for a multi-bank, diesel locomotive engine (10). A common rail (20, 22) is disposed proximate each bank (20, 22) of cylinders (12) of the engine to provide high pressure fuel (30) to a fuel flow control apparatus (14) associated with each respective cylinder. A plurality of high-pressure fuel pumps (34) provides high-pressure fuel to at least one of the common rails. A fluid cross connection (38) is provided to convey high pressure fuel between the two common rails, thereby providing for the continued delivery of fuel to all cylinders in the event of a failure of one of the high pressure pumps. The high-pressure pumps are motivated by fuel lobes (64) located on camshaft sections (50a, 50b, 50c) adjoined at a gear driven end 58 of the camshaft (50). Camshaft sections (50d, 50e, 50f) adjoined at an idler end (60) of the camshaft carry lower torque loads than those sections having fuel lobes and may be formed from a lower strength material or may have a smaller shaft diameter.
