This overview will discuss further details about Stanadyne, which will make it clear why we keep their parts and tools in our inventory.
In the beginning
Stanadyne has been around for over 135 years. It started off as the Hartford Machine Screw Company in 1876 and its first innovation was an automatic screw machine. This predecessor was instrumental in spreading automation in manufacturing and starting the industrialization of the United States.
It continued to develop and invent in the manufacturing sector until after World War II. At that time, Vernon Roose joined Stanadyne with an idea for a diesel fuel injection pump. This design was smaller, lighter and more technologically advanced. Known later as the rotary pump, it improved the functioning of diesel engines with better fuel distribution. That development made diesel engines the standard for heavy equipment in the ensuing years.
Fuel injection pumps continued to develop and become more high tech with new models introduced in 1952 and 1983. In 1970, Standard Screw became Stanadyne and added fuel filters and additives to its developments. It also added direct injection pumps for gasoline engines.
The current Stanadyne
Today, Stanadyne is headquartered in Windsor, Connecticut. The company has always been considered an innovator. With rising fuel costs and more environmental awareness, its priorities now focus on clean and efficient technology that offers more power. It continues to focus primarily on fuel systems, and its developments have long benefited the construction, agriculture and automotive industries.
Its tools and parts include the diesel common rail, rotary pumps and fuel injectors. As fuel and emissions standards change, the company looks to find ways to not just meet those standards, but to exceed them. Each design starts from the ground up with durability in mind, as diesel engines must stand up to harsh conditions and fuels while also using power efficiently.
The parts and tools
Stanadyne’s common rail diesel pump offers a low-parts, rugged design for the harshest conditions. The common rail injectors that go with this pump are made to switch out quickly and meet manufacturer standards.
The diesel rotary pump remains an old standby. It has been redeveloped to withstand heavier use and harsher fuels. Flexibility in timing and torque curving helps small engines run with more power for the long days during which they must be reliable. This pump is available in mechanical and electronic versions.
Finally, Stanadyne offers a wide range of fuel injectors. You can choose for assemblies that match direct or indirect injection diesel systems. Nozzles are also included and you can choose between rate-shaping or pencil nozzles.
