CI & SI Power Cylinder Systems (Part 1 of 2)
(Session Code: PFL530)

Room 140 E  8:00 a.m.

This session covers the Power Cylinder: piston, piston rings, piston pins, and connecting rods. The papers include information on reducing friction and increasing fuel economy, improving durability by understanding wear, and decreasing oil consumption and blow-by.

Organizers - Dan Richardson, Yong-Ching Chen, Cummins Inc.
