When talking about the semantics of an automobile and how it works, the car experts of one of the leading Suzuki Spare Parts dealers, BP Auto Spares India says that we can surely sum it up in a simple equation, fuel plus air equals motion. That’s the most common science behind all the automobiles that we see cruising on land, over the sea, and through the sky. Every car, truck, and bus follows the same mechanism; they transform fuel into power by mixing it up with air and then burning the mixture in the metal cylinders within the internal combustion engines. Now, exactly what will be the proportion of fuel and air that goes inside the cylinder for explosion depends entirely on fast how you are driving, where you are driving, how you are driving and for how long you are driving. These factors along with others regulate the fuel-air mixture. But long before the electronically controlled system, fuel injection was invented, there were devices known as carburetors that happen to add fuel (red) to air (blue) to make a mixture that’s just right for burning in the cylinders.
Now, you’ll only find these ingenious devices on old cars and motorcycle engines and lawnmowers and chainsaws with small, compact engines.
What is a carburetor?
A carburetor is a mechanical device that was a vital part of the auxiliary superstructure of the conventional internal combustion engines. They were basically there in a car to play these important functions.
- They are responsible for combining gasoline and air together to create a highly combustible mixture,
- They are responsible for regulating the ratio of air and fuel and transporting it to the metal cylinders within the engines.
- They are responsible for controlling the speed of the engine.
You must be wondering where all the carburetors have gone. Well, since the mechanical revolution, manufacturers have been kicking out the conventional carburetors in favor of the electronically controlled fuel injection system. The reason behind this development is because modern automobiles are serviced better by fuel injection systems, since they use less fuel for power and eventually make less pollution, also they deliver fuel directly into the cylinder, and the idling is easier with fuel injection systems since they can add a small proportion of fuel into an engine to keep it running.
Though they are the thing of the past, you’ll definitely find them in old classic cars and motorcycle engines and agricultural equipments.
