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.
