INNOVATIVE TWO DIMENSIONAL ULTRASONIC INSPECTION TECHNIQUE HELPS DOWNSIZE HIGH PERFORMANCE DIESEL ENGINES   Print  
Federal-Mogul is using a 2D ultrasonic analysis system to produce high performance pistons that enable a substantial further step in diesel engine downsizing Tuesday, 29th May 2012

New Non Destructive Testing Method helps major vehicle manufacturer to significantly reduce CO2 emissions


Nuremberg, Germany, May 29, 2012… Federal-Mogul Corporation is using a novel two-dimensional (2D) ultrasonic analysis system to produce high performance pistons that enable a substantial further step in diesel engine downsizing. In its first application, the greatly improved cooling capability of the company’s “raised gallery” piston allowed a Federal-Mogul customer to introduce a series of measures that achieved a CO2 reduction of up to 30 percent compared with the previous generation engine without raised gallery pistons. The first production application of Federal-Mogul’s raised gallery piston also delivers a specific power increase of 25 percent, keeping the piston at temperatures much lower than the acceptable limit of 400°C. In the same conditions, a standard piston’s bowl rim stresses are 43 percent higher and its temperature reaches 440°C, close to the metal’s melting point.
