How Diesel Fuel Injectors Work

Tuesday, November 10, 2015

The diesel market continues to grow from year to year as the need for reliable light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles increases mostly in secondary and third world countries. As infrastructure improves across the world so does the need for dependable work trucks. J.D. Power and Associates predicts that diesel sales will more than triple in the next 10 year accounting for more than 10% of all vehicle sales up from 3.6% just 10 years ago in 2005. From the year 2000 to 2005 diesel registrations increased over 80% exceeding 550,000 vehicles. From 2005 to 2015 that number further increased another 67%. ... read more »

Biggest Engine in the World

Friday, October 9, 2015

Is bigger necessarily better? In the case of engines… Absolutely! The largest engine in the world is quite the workhorse. Wartsila-Sulzer introduced the RTA96-C Turbocharged Two-Stroke diesel engine which was installed in the Emma Maersk container ship. Giant engines like these are used in large ships of all kinds. Ship lines like Maersk prefer a combination of a single engine and single propeller vs. multiple smaller engines and propWartsilla Crankshaftulsion systems. More engines equals more moving parts, problems for breakdowns and issues with both engines working in conjunction. The solution is one large engine. ... read more »

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained: Our Story

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

In the fall of 2014 our owners Brian Pfister and Brian Byrne set out to chart their own course. With a diverse business background including experiences with mergers and acquisitions in the financial and industrial markets they had attempted to strike a deal with the bank that was foreclosing on another remanufacturing business with a long history in Denver. It quickly became apparent to them the business in foreclosure was not worth pursuing for of the myriad of reasons and decided they would instead work to fill a void in the Denver market by creating Capital Reman Exchange. The Brians jumped into action and began to construct a business plan that would be focused on quality, timely production and fair pricing that would serve both local and national customers. Mr. Pfister and Mr. Byrne purchased some assets from the bank during the liquidation of the old company in Denver. In the past year of operations there have been great successes and some unexpected surprises. This is their story. ... read more »

Remanufacturing & The Environmental Impact Part 2

Friday, May 8, 2015

Nearly everyone who operates, owns or manages heavy diesel transportation equipment knows the Federal Government instituted regulations in an attempt to reduce emissions, fuel consumption and bolster a positive impact on the environment, but how does remanufacturing of diesel engines and engine components fit into the equation? ... read more »

Heavy Diesel & Fuel Economy

Friday, February 13, 2015

In the United States approximately 90% of all goods are shipped using diesel engines. This includes over the highway freight, marine and train transportation. Diesel tractor trailers alone consume approximately 20 billion gallons per year, and a fully loaded tractor trailer traditionally obtained approximately 5-7 miles per gallon. ... read more »

Connecting Rods At Work

Friday, January 2, 2015

A major source of engine wear is the sideways force exerted on the piston through the connecting rod by the crankshaft, which typically wears the cylinder into an oval cross-section rather than circular, making it impossible for piston rings to correctly seal against the cylinder walls. Geometrically, it can be seen that longer connecting rods will reduce the amount of this sideways force, and therefore lead to longer engine life. However, for a given engine block, the sum of the length of the connecting rod plus the piston stroke is a fixed number, determined by the fixed distance between the crankshaft axis and the top of the cylinder block where the cylinder head fastens; thus, for a given cylinder block longer stroke, giving greater engine displacement and power, requires a shorter connecting rod (or a piston with smaller compression height), resulting in accelerated cylinder wear ... read more »

Industry Spotlight: Diesel Engine Remanufacturing In America

Friday, December 13, 1901

Manufacturing or rather Re-Manufacturing is alive and well in the heartland of America. Two companies are doing great things in the diesel engine remanufacturing industry: Capital Reman Exchange and CNH Industrial. Diesel engine remanufacturing in its truest form is the process of recovering used engine components and machining them to better than new form as per original engine manufacturer guidelines. Sometimes remanufactured parts surpass brand new components due to engineering upgrades, reduced prices and a more competitive warranty. Remanufacturing simply does not repair or rebuild a used component from a point of failure but rather build up a core part to "better than new" standards. All parts are then tested to make sure they meet or exceed OEM specifications so that the product is top notch for the customer upon delivery. ... read more »
