Less friction for more efficient engines
Piston rings from Kolbenschmidt excel through their excellent friction values, durability and low oil consumption. Piston rings which are optimised for replacement ensure that repairs are long lasting with optimal results.
We generally differentiate between compression rings and oil control rings. The key task for both ring types is to mutually seal off the combustion chamber and crankcase.
- Sealing against combustion gases
- Heat dissipation
- Scrape off and spread oil
Inertia and gas loads, as well as high temperatures, place high technical demands on piston rings. Optimum durability and compliance with emissions regulations are only achieved by tailoring piston rings precisely to the particular engine.
Motorservice supplies a customer-oriented, comprehensive product range with over 1,100 different ring sets for more than 8,000 applications.
Molybdenum-coated piston rings offer maximum temperature resistance with excellent emergency running properties.
Chromium-plated piston ring sliding surfaces reduce the wear on the interacting sliding parts and increase durability.
Ceramic chromium and diamond-coated coatings
These coatings consist of a chromium layer with a network of cracks, into which firmly anchored hard materials – ceramic or micro-diamonds – are embedded.
