How does Carburetor work?

2 minutesread

Carburetor work:

In its most simple form, a carburetor uses a measuring instrument that narrows during a section that decreases atmospheric pressure and creates a vacuum. This can be called the Vacuum Venturi Effect.

This vacuum pulls fuel into the Carburetor Vs fuel injection system where the ratio is adjusted using two valves; the choke and also the throttle. The choke decreases the quantity of air and increases the flow of fuel causing the engine to run lean (a very useful feature during winters or a chilly start). The second valve, called the accelerator (a.k.a butterfly valve) regulates the flow of the air-fuel mixture to the engine. The more that throttle is open, the more the air-fuel is introduced, the faster the vehicle accelerates. The valve is connected through a cable to the accelerator pedal in a car.

Fuel is introduced through small jets that are precisely calibrated to attain maximum efficiency and performance. Attached beneath the carburetor body is the Float-Feed Chamber which is the style of a secondary fuel tank that feeds fuel to the engine. When the fuel level drops to a low, the float triggers a valve to refill the chamber.


In summary, then, here’s how it all works:
  1. Air flows into the highest of the carburetor from the car’s air intake, passing through a filter that cleans it of debris.
  2. When the engine is first started, the choke (blue) will be set so it almost blocks the highest of the pipe to scale back the number of air coming in (increasing the fuel content of the mixture entering the cylinders).
  3. In the center of the tube, the air is forced through a narrow kink called a venturi. This makes it speed up and causes its pressure to drop.
  4. The call atmospheric pressure creates suction on the fuel pipe (right), drawing in fuel (orange).
  5. The throttle (green) may be a valve that swivels to open or close the pipe. When the throttle is open, more air and fuel flow to the cylinders therefore the engine produces more power and therefore the car goes faster.
  6. The mixture of air and fuel flows down into the cylinders.
  7. Fuel (orange) is supplied from a mini-fuel tank called the float-feed chamber.
  8. As the reserve falls, afloat within the chamber falls and opens a valve at the highest.
  9. When the valve opens, more fuel flows in to replenish the chamber from the most tank. This makes the float rise and closes the valve again.
