Mitsubishi pistons

The Mitsubishi diesel engine pistons converts the energy of the expanding diesel gas into mechanical power.
The piston goes up and down in the cylinder liner or sleeve. Mitsubishi Pistons are usually made out of an aluminum alloy.
To prevent the combustion gasses from passing by the piston and to keep the friction to a minimum, each piston has several metal rings around it.
These rings function as a seal between the piston and the liner wall and will also reduce the friction by minimizing the contact area between the piston and the liner wall.
The rings are usually made of cast iron and coated with chrome or molybdenum.
The Mitsubishi industrial diesel engine pistons have 3 rings. The 2 top rings acts primarily as the pressure seal.
The bottom ring is an oiler ring and ensures that the supply of lubricating oil is put on the liner walls.
And acts also as a wiper ring to control the amount of oil film on the liner wall.
