High-quality automotive fuel system fasteners are essential to successfully support the combustion process in internal combustion engines. The system contains key parts, such as fuel tank, fuel filters, fuel pump, carburettors, which all work in unison to ensure the combustion process works effectively and efficiently. It is crucial that these components are fastened with high-quality parts.
Furthermore, the use of alternative fuels such as Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) are on the rise in some countries and are requiring modifications to the fuel system and its delivery. In 2021, it was reported that China imported more LNG than any other country, closely followed by Japan. Therefore, a rise in LNG vehicles would help boost the overall automotive fuel system market.
Key Requirements for Automotive Fuel System Fasteners
Automotive fuel system fasteners need to be manufactured with high-quality and precision to ensure they work as effectively in the fuel system. One fastener which is commonly used for automotive fuel system builds is the banjo bolts. It is a hollow bolt which has holes allowing pressurised fluid to transfer to the other part of the bolt fitting and to other components, which ensures no liquids escape or become contaminated by outside elements.
