New cylinder components and gaskets primed for use on 6090 PowerTech™ engines

Federal-Mogul Motorparts adds to existing cylinder and gasket range

Johannesburg, South Africa, 29 May 2018. Federal-Mogul Motorparts has launched a new product line of FP Diesel® cylinder components and gaskets for use on the John Deere 6090 PowerTech™ Tier 2, 3, IT4 & FT4 engines, used in a wide range of agricultural, construction, and industrial applications.

The cylinder kits contain FP Diesel®’s one-piece POWERFORGED friction-welded steel pistons, which provide exceptional strength and durability. The patented closed-cooling gallery ensures maximum cooling by allowing a greater volume of oil to reach more of the piston’s interior surfaces. The friction-welded cooling gallery results in a box structure that reduces piston deformity significantly, and increases support to the ring lands.

FP Diesel® POWERFORGED pistons are finished with a proprietary manganese phosphate coating to insure superior break-in and greater resistance to scuffing. The combination of manganese phosphate coating and profiled pin bore allows these pistons to operate without bushings for increased durability. Additionally, the FP-R530609 liner used in FP Diesel® cylinder kits is made from a specially-formulated ductile cast iron, designed and tested to withstand the high cylinder pressures found within the 6090 engine. Unlike typical wet sleeves, the 6090 liner has a considerably thinner wall thickness, which can withstand peak firing pressures and reduce the risk of premature failure.

“FP Diesel®’s exclusive ML7™ head gasket complements the 6090 PowerTech cylinder components with its patented multi-layer design, providing significantly enhanced combustion and fluid sealing capabilities, as well as high temperature resistance. The reinforced gasket body increases lateral stability, and provides a rigid backbone to the combustion seal,” Frank Piojda, Off-Highway/Heavy Duty Director, Federal-Mogul Motorparts, EMEA, concludes.
