Show Notes

Piston rings are an essential component to the operation of any reciprocating-style equipment, be they internal combustion engines or compressors. What you may not appreciate is that 40% of the friction generated inside an engine is at the piston-liner interface, which makes the solid and liquid lubrication of this component absolutely critical. In this discussion, Lake Speed Jnr talks about the evolution of piston rings, bore technologies, and how this is all enabling ever-lower viscosities.
