Insights on EMD Piston Rings
Insights on EMD Piston Rings are used to Propel Diesel Locomotives. They create the pressure that induces combustion. They are basically the necessary components that allow the engine to operate efficiently.
Here is a small explanation of what a Piston ring is :
Piston ring is one of the most important parts of the Diesel engines.It is an open-ended ring that fits into a groove on the outer diameter of a piston in a reciprocating engine such as an internal combustion engine or steam engine.
The principal function of the piston rings is to form a seal between the combustion chamber(2 stroke or 4 stroke engine) and crankcase of the engine. The goal is to prevent combustion gases from passing into the crankcase and oil from passing into the combustion chamber. Marine engines have three or more types of rings fitted on the circumference of the piston.
The three main functions of piston rings in reciprocating engines are:
1. Sealing the combustion/expansion chamber.
2. Supporting heat transfer from the piston to the cylinder wall.
3. Regulating engine oil consumption.
The EMD piston ring is an essential piston part, and its numbers and functionality differ depending on the type and capacity of the engine. In 2-stroke large engines, compression type piston rings are used to seal the combustion chamber and wiper rings are installed below them to wipe the deposits from the liner and distribute oil on the liner surface.
However, in smaller marine engines, different types of piston rings are used for dedicated purposes. E.g. oil scraper ring is used in 4 stroke engine as it’s a trunk type engine, and the crankcase oil has direct access to cylinder liner and piston.
