Cryogenic Treatment Services is perfect for customers who want to enhance the overall performance of their metal components. Cryogenic Treatment, which is also known as Cryogenic Processing, modifies the micro-structure of metals by subjecting them to ultra-cold temperatures (down to –300ºF). Cryogenic Treatment is used on all metals such as steel, cast alloys, aluminum, copper, titanium, tooling steel etc. The benefit from cryogenic processing on all high heat, high wear, high friction items including engine blocks, heads, valves & springs, crankshafts, rods, pistons, gears, transmissions, axles, bearings and brake rotors & pads.
When left untreated, a component can change in size and dimension. These changes are due to heat, vibration, or age. These factors induce the release of residual stresses and changes to the crystal structure, which in turn, can create warping and size change. You may find warped brake rotors, and warped engine blocks appear over time. Treated valve springs can show a 700% increase over their normal service life, while components that wear by friction also show considerable life increases. In fact, laboratory tests initiated by the U.S. Postal Service showed that cryogenic treatment of brake rotors resulted in parts that lasted over five times longer than the best untreated rotors.
General benefits: -Increased abrasion and wear resistance -Increased fatigue life -Increased ductility -Reduced residual stresses -Mild increase in tensile strength -A change in vibration characteristics Gears: -Army Aviation: 50% extra pitting resistance -5% more load carrying capacity -40 to 60 degrees higher tempering temperature -treated gears operate cooler in friction action -3-4 times increased life of racing gears, including drag racing applications Brakes: -Lab tests indicate up to 7 times life -specified by US Postal Service after extensive testing -California County Sheriff fleet of 450 Ford Crown Vicotria saving over $650,000 per year based on a one year practical test -United States commercial & government fleet - 31,600,000 vehicles -Proven environmental benefits Engine components: -valve springs life increased up to 6 times life -block, crankshaft, and rods life increased due to less distortion and more wear resistance
