Water Injection System 1944

The Vought F4U-1,F4U-2 and the GoodyearFG-1 and the Brewster F3A-1 Corsair were powered by a Pratt & Whitney R-2800-8 with 2000 horsepower (1491 kW) at 2700 RPM at 305 m; 1800 horsepower (1342 kW) at 2700 rpm at 4724 m, first series production "B" Series engine using a two-stage, two-speed auxiliary supercharger. The engine's power was transmitted through the use of a three bladed constant speed Hamilton Standard Hydromatic propeller.  

Three different settings were possible, high, low and neutral.

When in high or low, all of the intake air is compressed in two stages. The intake air is compressed by the auxiliary blower, then cooled by the intercooler, then sent through the main stage blower before entering the cylinders.

In neutral, the Pratt & Whitney R-2800-8 performed like a single-stage engine.

High gear was used for high altitudes, low gear for medium altitudes and finally neutral is used for low altitudes.

Later on the Vought F4U-1A, F4U-1D and the F4U-1C were mounted with a Pratt & Whitney R-2800-8W with water injection and with 2250 horsepower (1677 kW) WEP, the W stand for water injection, used for an additional burst of power for a limited time , descripted as war emergency power with designation WEP.

The water injection system was permitted for higher manifold pressures, giving the engine a maximum of 2700 RPM.

Engaging the water injection system was rather simple, a safety wire stopped the throttle handle from advancing completely, in stage of an emergency, the throttle handle was advanced completely to full open, breaking the wire and so engaging the water injection system.

A green warning light in the cockpit would flash after two minutes and remain on while the throttle was in the full open position.

A safety measure was introduced, if the throttle was in any other position other than full throttle, the water injection system would automatically turn off.

The Vought F4U-4, F4U-4B, F4U-4P and F4U-7 used a Pratt & Whitney R-2800-18W with 2100 horsepower (1566 kW) at 2800 RPM at 305 m; 1,800 horsepower (1342 kW) at 2800 RPM at 7772 m. The engine's power was transmitted through the use of a four bladed constant speed Hamilton Standard Hydromatic propeller. Some Vought F4U-4 and F4U-4B used a Pratt & Whitney R-2800-42W engine.

The Vought F4U-5, F4U-5N and F4U-5NL used a Pratt & Whitney R-2800-32W with 2450 horsepower (1827 kW), ,850 horsepower (2125 kW) with water-methanol injection. The engine's power was transmitted through the use of a four bladed constant speed Hamilton Standard Hydromatic propeller.

Finally, the AU-1 corsair used a Pratt & Whitney R-2700-83W engine generated 2300 horsepower, slightly down on the power available in the F4U-5, its top speed also dropped, partly because of an increase in armor. The engine's power was transmitted through the use of a four bladed constant speed Hamilton Standard Hydromatic propeller.
