With GRI support, Tecogen tested the SRBSN
seat insert material with a stock exhaust valve in cylinder heads for which valve recession rates had been previously measured.
John Mangels, Ceradyne director of sales and marketing, commented: "We are very pleased about this decision to expand the use of Ceradyne SRBSN
components in diesel engines.
One of Ceradyne's patented ceramic materials, Ceralloy(R) 147 SRBSN
, is also used to make industrial wear components for the oil- drilling industry, cutting tools, pulp and paper machines, glass tempering furnaces, and semiconductor-manufacturing equipment," Moskowitz said further.
As the provider of the most cost-effective ceramic components with proven reliability, and with our depth of experience in automotive applications for SRBSN
ceramics, we feel we have a strong story to tell to a typically very progressive audience.
