Valve washers

The valve washers are a key component of any internal combustion engine. It is the cylindrical inserts that are placed in the interior of the engine block to provide a smooth and durable surface on which the piston can move up and down. Without them, the piston would eventually wear out the engine block, resulting in catastrophic failure.

The materials used to manufacture valve seals have evolved over the years as engine technology has evolved. Early valve seals were made of cast iron, but modern engines usually use alloys such as aluminum, steel, or titanium. These materials offer greater durability and resistance to heat and wear.

Seals are available in various shapes and sizes, depending on the specific one engine for which they are designed. They can be solid or hollow and can have various surface treatments applied to improve their performance. For example, some seals are coated with a layer of ceramic or other heat-resistant material to help dissipate heat and reduce wear.

The installation for the seals requires precision. They must be precisely machined and fitted to the engine block to ensure a tight seal and smooth operation. If installed incorrectly, they can cause excessive engine wear, reduce power output, and even cause engine failure. Regular maintenance on valve seals is essential to ensure their longevity and performance. This includes regular inspections, cleaning and replacement as needed. Failure to maintain can result in reduced engine performance, higher fuel consumption and costly repairs.
