Solex carburetor construction and working principle

Solex carburetor is famous for its performance, reliability, and ease of starting. The figure shows a diagram of a downdraught solex carburetor. This type of carburetor has distinct fuel circuit for starting, idling, acceleration, low speed operations, etc. Provisions on solex carburetor ensure the supply of richer mixture at starting, and weaker mixture during cruising of the engine.

How multiple venturi carburetor works?

When one or more secondary venturi concentrically enclosed inside the main venturi of carburetor, then it is called multiple venturi carburetor. The secondary venturies are known as boost venturi. The boost venturi located at the upstream of the main venturi. The boost venturi positioned in such a way that the discharge end is located at the throat of main venturi and the pressure at the exit of boost venturi is equal to the throat pressure of main venturi. In this arrangement, only a fraction of air flow thought the boost venturi. The fuel nozzle is located at the throat of boost venturi.

What is a constant choke carburetor?

Constant choke carburetor is the type of carburetor in which the air and fuel flow area is always kept constant. In constant choke carburetor, the air-fuel ratio is changed due to varying pressure difference or depression as per the demand. This type of carburetor should have a compensating device to avoid air-fuel mixture enrichment with the increase in speed. Example: Solex carburetor and Zenith carburetor.

Differences between Petrol and Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG)

Comparison between petrol and liquid petroleum gas

🔗Advantages and disadvantages of liquid petroleum gas (LPG)

Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG)
Petrol is in the liquid phase at ambient condition.
LPG is in gases sate at ambient condition, it is liquefied at high pressure.
Petrol has odour
LPG is odourless. Powerful odorant like ethanethiol is added to LPG to detect the fuel leakage.
Combustion is not clean as in the LPG
Clean combustion.
High emission when compared to LPG
Low emission
Ignition temperature is lower than LPG
High ignition temperature
Noisier and vibration when compared to LPG engine

Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) Advantages and Disadvantages of LPG


Introduction to LPG

Propane and Butane are the two flammable gaseous obtained from oil wells, they also obtained from the petroleum refining process. This two gases compressed and cooled to form liquid known “liquid petroleum gas”. They are widely used as fuel for cooking, heating. Also used in IC engine, buses, and cars and referred to as autogas. Clean LPG is odorless gas, for safety concern and in order to detect the leaks, powerful odorant like ethanethiol is added to LPG.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Hydrogen as Fuel in IC Engine


Advantages of hydrogen fuel

  • Renewable energy.
  • Easy production - Hydrogen can produce by many chemical processes including simple electrolysis of water.
  • Reduce the dependency on fossil fuel.
  • High energy content per liter (only when stored as liquid form)
  • Physical delay of fuel is almost zero.
  • Good load response.
  • Clean combustion of fuel and low emission.
  • Since there is no carbon in the fuel, there is would be no carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons in the exhaust gas.
  • Even fuel leakage to the environment does not consider as pollution.
