Of the three types of carburetors used on large, high-performance aircraft engines manufactured in the United States during World War II, the Bendix-Stromberg pressure carburetor was the one most commonly found. Most commongly installed on the Wright R-1820 Cyclone 9, an American radial engine developed by Curtiss-Wright. It was widely used on aircraft such as the B-17 Flying Fortress, SBC Helldiver, Douglas DC-3, Grumman HU-16 Albatross and many more aircraft from the 1930s through 1950s.
A floatless pressure carburetor is a type of aircraft fuel control that provides very accurate fuel delivery, prevents ice from forming in the carburetor and prevents fuel starvation during negative "G" and inverted flight by eliminating the customary float-controlled fuel inlet valve. In 1936, the first Bendix-Stromberg pressure carburetor was installed and flown on an Allison V-1710-7.
