As a user of an ECN injector, I agree to:

  1. Ensure that my fuel system is clean and free of particles.
  2. For a Spray G gasoline injector, use available Delphi “setup” injectors of the same type to ensure pressure and injector driver controls are functional prior to installation of the target injector.
  3. Apply active cooling to the injector at all times to the target temperature to ensure that it does not overheat.
  4. Prevent water condensation (and eventual rust/oxidation) and coking by purging of vessel with dry air or nitrogen.
  5. Coating the nozzle with a light oil (or WD-40) after experiments are completed to prevent oxidation when in storage.
  6. Measure ambient and injector temperature (and composition) boundary conditions to ensure that target conditions are met.
  7. Provide relevant vessel or engine intake geometry to permit CFD simulation of the experiment.
  8. Share results to the ECN archival website following instructions on the participation page.
