IPD has announced the availability of the latest friction welded design pistons for Caterpillar C27 engine applications. IPD Steel friction welded pistons for C27 are the most up-to-date design and are superior to older 1-piece versions. Features and benefits include as follows:

• Only alternative to dealer parts

• Optimized oil cooling gallery shape based on the crown bowl contour for enhanced heat transfer performance

• Special premium steel alloy used for the crown provides resistance to ring groove wear and combustion bowl rim corrosion (only friction welded pistons can provide the benefits of using different/ideal specification alloys for the crown and skirt sections for optimal performance)

• Finite element analysis (FEA) modelling to ensure high stress areas are identified in advance, and design considerations are implemented

• Superior strength in the lower ring land area, engineered to perform at cylinder pressures above the limits of other designs

• Manufactured by IPD in Torrance, CA (USA)
