How SilcoTek® Coatings Prevent Carbon Fouling And Improve Engine Performance.
The advent of advanced fuel and lubricant formulations has improved the performance of advanced engine technologies. Unfortunately the tendency of fuels to develop carbon deposits under high temperature and to foul injectors and exhaust coolers under lower temperature anti oxidation conditions can increase engine maintenance at best and cause a failure at worst.
SilcoTek’s high temperature coking and fouling resistant coatings, SilcoKlean® and Dursan®, prevent fuels and lubricants from reacting with flow path surfaces and forming carbon deposits. Coated surfaces minimize sticking and promote easy cleaning, further reducing carbon build-up. SilcoTek’s patented silicon chemical vapor deposition (CVD) coating technology can be applied to complex or narrow part configurations without impacting even extremely tight tolerances. Comparative studies show SilcoTek coatings outperform most materials commonly used in combustion environments.*
