Further Developments in the Manufacture and Applications of Steel Chrome-Plated Cylinder Liners with Special Reference to Cavitation and Erosion Problems on the Water Side 740315

This paper describes a method of obtaining greater power in internal combustion engines, especially for industrial vehicles, by increasing the cylinder bore through the fitting of thin steel chrome-plated cylinder liners to substitute the heavier conventional cast iron liners.
At the same time, these chrome-plated steel liners have a longer life due to the chrome coating and their adequate surface finish, both on normally aspirated and on supercharged engines.
A comparative study is made of the resistance of steel and cast iron materials; furthermore, the problem of cavitation on the water side is examined and a well-proved solution is offered.
