An apparatus in which coal gas, hydrogen, or air is passed through or over a volatile hydrocarbon, in order to confer or increase illuminating power.
One that carburets; specif., an apparatus in which air or gas is carbureted, as by passing it through a light petroleum oil. The carburetor for a gasoline engine is usually either a surface carburetor, or alternatively a float carburetor (called also float-feed carburetor, or spray carburetor). In the former air is charged by being passed over the surface of gasoline. In the latter a fine spray of gasoline is drawn from an atomizing nozzle by a current of air induced by the suction of the engine piston, the supply of gasoline being regulated by a float which actuates a needle valve controlling the outlet of the feed pipe. Alcohol and other volatile inflammable liquids may be used instead of gasoline.
Device which mixes fuel and air and controls the amount of mixture entering the engine. The carburetor provides the engine with the proper mixture of fuel and air.
A mechanical device found on the intake side of the engine which mixes fuel and air to create the volatile mixture that gets ignited in the engine.
Motorcycles usually have one per cylinder - they are a complex little collection of parts that controls the fuel mixture that enters the cylinders. Fuel injected bikes don't have carburetors, which are sometimes called 'carbs'.
A metering device which meters fuel into the in-coming combustion air. Carbs work directly off of vacuum.
Part of the engine where air and fuel mix in an internal combustion engine.
The unit mounted on top of the intake manifold that controls the air-fuel mixture going to the engine.
A device that combines fuel with air entering the engine; capable of precision control over the air volume and the ratio of the fuel-to-air mixture.
an automatic mixing device which combines a relatively large volume of air with a relatively small volume of gasoline, turns this mixture into a fine mist, and passes this fine mist into the engines's combustion chamber via the intake manifold.
mixes air with gasoline vapor prior to explosion
a complicated device that performs a simple function - delivering the correct fuel / air ratio to the engine
a device that controls both the amount of air and fuel that is allowed into the cylinders
a device that enables fuel to mix with air in a precise ratio while being throttled over a wide range
a fuel delivery mechanism that makes use of the simple principle of vacuum in order to deliver fuel to the engine
a self-contained fuel metering system, and is cost competitive when compared to a complete EFI system
a venturi device through which air is drawn and mixed with fuel to create the fuel-air aerosol known as the mixture
A device that mixes air and fuel for burning in the engine's combustion chamber.
device for mixing vaporized fuel with air to produce an explosive mixture; the part of the engine which controls the speed
A device connected directly to the gas pedal and mounted on top of the engine.
By adjusting the needle valve in the carburetor, you control the engineâ€(tm)s lean/rich fuel mixture and determine the airplane's speed.
This is the main fuel delivery component used on most engines built up to the 1988 model year. Carburetors have several sub-systems that cause a different amount of fuel to be delivered to the engine under different operating conditions. A richer than normal mixture is needed during rapid acceleration and also for about the first two minutes of operation after a cold start. For more info on trouble-shooting carburetors, see Fuel System Testing.
A device that mixes fuel and air to provide a combustible mixture. Air blowing over the fuel nozzles (jets) results in an air-fuel mixture burned in the cylinders. Carburetors were common on most vehicles before 1985. Currently, most vehicles use some form of fuel injection instead.
The part of the engine which controls the speed or throttle setting and lean/rich mixture via setting of the needle valve.
A mechanism that mixes fuel with air in the proper proportions to provide a desired power output from a spark-ignition internal combustion engine.
Used in older cars, this is a complex device usually found right below the air cleaner that uses a series of flaps and valves to vaporize fuel and mixed it with air in proper quantities to suit the varying needs of the engine.
The chamber which mixes air from the venturi and fuel from the fuel jet.
The purpose of the carburetor is to mix the proper ratio of air and gasoline. It is a series of air and fuel jets through which the gas and air is mixed to form a combustible mixture that then travels through the intake manifold into the cylinders. The carburetor changes the fuel-and-air mixture according to the engine's operating condition.
This can also be referred to as a carb. This part of the engine controls the ratio of fuel and air entering the engine. There are two types of carbs: slide carbs, where the barrel slides along its axis instead of rotating; and rotary or barrel carbs that rotate. The rotary carb is most common among RTR kits and is fine for most applications. The slide carb provides a quicker response and is therefore more desirable to the more serious enthusiast.
The fuel system component that meters the fuel and air and supplies the proper amounts of both to the engine. The part of the engine that handles the job of changing ratios or air and fuel mixture within an engine to meet different operating conditions (e.g. heat or altitude).
A device through which air and fuel are atomized and drawn into the engine. It meters the proper proportions of fuel and air to form a combustible mixture and varies the ratio according to the engine operation.
A device, usually mounted on the intake manifold of an engine, which mixes the air and fuel in the proper proportion to allow even combustion.
The mechanism on the engine that determines the ratio of fuel and air, creating a mixture that gets ignited in the engine.
The carburetor, carburettor, or carburetter (see spelling differences), also called carb (in North America) or carbie (chiefly in Australia) for short, is a device that blends air and fuel for an internal combustion engine. It was invented by Hungarian scientists DonÃ¡t BÃ¡nki and JÃ¡nos Csonka in 1893. Carburetors are still found in small engines and in older or specialized automobiles such as those designed for stock car racing.
