Nostrum Energy introducing new high-flow K-DI direct injectors, in-cylinder water injector and dilute combustion system

20 October 2015

Nostrum Energy is launching a new line of high-flow direct injectors with a proprietary “kinetic” particle break-up mechanism, K-DI (Kinetic Direct Injector), for the high performance market this fall. In addition to the kinetic colliding jet injectors, Nostrum will showcase a direct in-cylinder water injector and intake track water injector, plus its dilute combustion system, the “Nostrum Cycle”, at Engine Expo – Novi 2015.

Nostrum will introduce its kinetic colliding jet injectors and dilute combustion systems at Engine Expo – Novi 2015 as well as the application-specific (initially GM’s Ecotec 2.0L LTG and LHU model codes), high-flow, K-DI fuel injector at the SEMA Show 2015.

The new kinetic direct injectors utilize a new method of atomization and are designed to increase engine power for the performance aftermarket; deliver cleaner tail pipe emissions in existing commercial fleets; and increase fuel efficiency both for in-field vehicles and future OEM Engines.

Nostrum engineers will give two technology presentations at the show, one showcasing the kinetic breakup mechanism of its high-flow K-DI, the other reviewing the novel dilute combustion systems with water injection for in-cylinder combustion control.

Much of the Nostrum development work is being carried out at Michigan Technical University, but Nostrum also has contracts with two engine research companies: Ricardo and Mahle. Both are running the Nostrum cycle on commercial engines they have retrofitted.

Nostrum Energy LLC (and its subsidiaries Nostrum Motors LLC and Nostrum Power LLC) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nostrum Pharmaceuticals and was established in 2008 to develop and commercialize technologies that increase efficiency and reduce emissions in internal combustion engines.
