4)Engine temperature is too low and too much corrosive substance is formed in the cylinder.

2.5The main cause of bias Wear of Piston Ring

1. Piston cause


1) The center line of the pin hole is not perpendicular to the center line of the piston, and the piston moves towards the cylinder, which causes the piston ring to be worn out.


2) The ring groove plane is not perpendicular to the center line of the piston, and the piston ring is subjected to deflection force.


3) The weight of the piston connecting rod group varies too much by cylinder, and the imbalance of the piston operation causes the piston ring to be worn out.

2, connecting rod cause

1) Bending and deforming of connecting rod, piston moving towards cylinder, causing piston ring to be worn out


2) If the center line of the connecting rod is not parallel, the piston moving towards the cylinder will cause the piston ring to be worn out.


3) If the gap between the big end of the connecting rod and the crankshaft is too large, the piston will move on the cylinder, which will cause the piston ring to be worn out.

3, cylinder liner cause

1)Cylinder liner is worn out of circle due to installation and thermal stress deformation
