Today’s smaller and lighter automotive engines achieve greater speed than their predecessors while consuming less fuel. The simultaneous reduction of emissions and increased miles per gallon (MPG) figures testify to how truly efficient these engines have become. The downside of the more stringent performance requirements, however, results in a greater susceptibility for a buildup of deposits to occur in air induction and fuel systems, damaging the ratio between air and fuel.
One solution, created by BG Products, a supplier of aftermarket automotive products and equipment, was to assist lubrication companies and car dealerships by designing a way to clean the fuel injection and air induction systems, eliminating the deposits. The company’s BG VIA® Vehicle Injection Apparatus, a supply tool pressurized by shop air, uses BG cleaners to remove deposits from combustion chambers, fuel injectors and other critical fuel components. The result is restored airflow and fuel efficiency, decreased emissions and improved engine performance.
The BG VIA® works by pouring the BG cleaner into the top of the device, increasing the pressure and then running the process until the system is clean.
What BG needed for its design was an easy way to release the pressure buildup in the BG VIA. By adding a pressure relief button, the operator can easily release air pressure after the cleaning procedure.
