Many successful manufacturers are turning to cryogenic processing for longer lasting and better performing automotive OEM applications. The cryogenic processing works regardless of the automotive metals. Whether it is steel involved or aluminum on aluminum or a cast iron sleeve in an aluminum block, the cryogenic treatment of the particular parts will do its job. This is not a very expensive treatment, considering the money that’s at stake for automotive OEM manufacturers.
It’s an investment that pays itself off more than once in saved labor hours and new parts costs.
Test after test has proven that the advantages to automotive OEM applications are significantly improved after being cryogenically treated. This cost effective treatment extends the life and improving safety of all treated components. The most recent tests and trials in the field have proven an amazing increases of three to five times when it comes to durability and strength improvements.
What automotive OEM applications can benefit from cryogenic processing?
- Rocker arms
- Bearings (abrasive wear resistance)
- Connecting Rods and Rod Caps
What are the benefits of cryogenic treatment for automotive OEM applications?
- Less taper for cylinder walls
- Piston rings last notably longer and seat more effectively with less cylinder wall taper caused by rings scraping insides of cylinder
- Springs (300% life increase from stress relief and stabilization)
- less susceptible to cycle fatigue / failure
If you treat the entire block and heads, you can run at peak lean stoichiometry (14.7 air to fuel mixture) because the valves are less likely to be tuliped due to more effective heat extraction (heat transmissivity) from improved coherence of structure.
