Engine with the big mileage

Engine with the big mileage

For the engines with the big mileage or for the engines with the bad technical condition -treatment process with tribotechnical compound Atomium is divided by two steps:

  •  Cleaning and preparation of the surface of friction pairs;
  •  Modifying surface process.

This division into stages is due to the presence of solid abrasive particles on the friction surfaces and in the entire oil system of products of incomplete combustion of fuel and thermal degradation of oil.

Processes taking place in the "old" engine

Products of incomplete combustion of fuel are layered in the combustion chamber in the form of carbon, and at a certain thickness, fall off due to the explosive nature of the working process. Then the carbon particles in the form of solid carbons fall into the oil, where they work together with the products of oil destruction as abrasive materials, which significantly increase the wear rate of friction parts, and, above all, parts of the Central Piston Group (CPG).

Most of these solid particles are deposited on the oil filter, while the rest continue to circulate with the oil flow as a suspension, which manifests as oil contamination. The worse the technical condition of the engine, the lower the compression, the faster it becomes "dirty" oil and engine parts.

How it works the additive into the engine Atomium

Stage 1. Cleaning the engine
When engine treatment additive "SUPROTEC" in the first stage mineral particles to produce cleaning of the friction surfaces. However, cleaning is not enough to start modifying these surfaces.
This is due to the fact that the oil still contains a high concentration of solid small particles of carbonates. They "rip off" the newly formed thin layers. Thus, the formation of the protective layer begins to actively occur only at the second stage of processing, after replacing the working oil and the oil filter.

Stage 2. Restoring the engine

At the second stage of processing, after the additive to the engine "Active PLUS" is poured into the new oil, the processes of modification of the friction surfaces occur in the same way as when processing a new engine. In addition, due to the addition and creation of a denser layer of oil on the friction surfaces, the hydraulic density of the cylinder-piston group increases: the "piston ring – piston groove – cylinder surface" node, which leads to the restoration of compression, usually to the nominal values of the manufacturer. Increasing compression, in turn, restores the air supply to the cylinders to normal and reduces the breakthrough of working gases into the crankcase. This leads to a normal workflow, restoring power, acceleration, reducing fuel consumption and improving environmental performance.

Effects of using tribo compounds (additive to the engine) Active PLUS (gasoline and diesel):

• Restoration and leveling of compression in cylinders;

  • Increase engine life;
  • Increase engine power and throttle response;
  • Reduced fuel consumption;
  • Restoring optimal engine performance;
  • Reduce noise and vibration (by cleaning the engine);
  • Improving the environmental performance of the internal combustion engine;
  • Restoring the performance of hydraulic compensators;
  • Engine protection in case of emergency oil loss.

Further operation of the unit when using an additive Active series in the engine allows you to maintain all its characteristics within the factory parameters for a long time. The residual resource of the internal combustion engine at the time of application of tribocompositions is increased by 2.5-3 times. This is why tribotechnical compounds are recommended to be used as early as possible, including for prevention purposes and in new cars.
