is Cryogenic Treatment?
can you expect?
Industries - Automotive and Other Machined
Many parts of the car respond to cryogenic
processing. Cryogenic processing has been proven and continues to be
proven on the race track. Cryogenic processing has proven applications
in the automotive industry. Virtually any part that is stressed or
worn during use can benefit from cryogenic processing.
Treating the block and piston rings helps assure better ring
sealing, which raises torque and increases engine life by reducing
wear on the cylinder bores. Treating the block also reduces distortion
of the block during machining and running. Blocks should be treated
after all heavy machining is done and before final boring and honing.
It is beneficial to treat both aluminum and cast iron blocks. Sleeved
blocks and cylinders should also be treated.
Cryogenic Processing reduces wear in the valve train. This assures
the valve timing remains constant. Treating the cams, valves, guides,
keepers, and retainers assures minimum wear in this area and minimum
breakage, which results in reduced sticking and more accurate timing.
Treating valve springs allows our customer much longer life.
Cryo Processing reduces wear and breakage of crankshafts. Cryo
treating cast crankshafts greatly reduces wear and breakage. Cryo
treating bearings helps to increase their life and reduce instances of
cracking. Dyer's Top Rods cryogenically treats all of its connecting
rods and is known for having one of the toughest rods in the market.
Pistons resist detonation longer when treated, and also distort less
in use. Piston pins wear less. Piston rings seal better, vibrate less,
and last longer.
Other Engine Parts
Cylinder heads resist detonation better. Valve seats wear less.
Oil and Water pumps last longer. Crankshafts, Pistons, Piston rings,
bearings, Connecting rods respond to cryo by an increase in life and
Any stressed parts of a drive train will respond to cryogenic
processing. Axles, ring and pinion, roller bearings, CV joints, and
clutches all respond with beneficial affects of longer life and
reduced breakage. One of our customers found both a longer clutch
lining life and an increase in the coefficient of friction in
cryogenically treated clutch parts. A major European manufacturer of
CV joints has confirmed through their research that there is a lot of
life to be gained by cryogenic processing.
Suspension springs and torsion bars both gain in life and do not
lose their spring constant when treated. Sway bars live longer and
remain more constant. Treating A arms and other links helps control
vibration. Treatment of ball joints increases their life.
