The DECC Co. now offers a new thermal dispersant coating application that helps reduce high operating temperatures caused by EPA emissions-compliant diesel engines. Engineered to act as a thermal barrier while simultaneously dispersing heat across the entire surface of the part and limiting isolated high temperature pockets, DECC’s coating application can result in up to a 25% reduction in operating temperature, the company claims. As a result, the use of heat blankets can be limited, component durability is increased, and warranty issues are diminished. For the past five years, DECC has been providing solutions to diesel OEMs in response to emissions-requirement challenges, including the prevention of corrosion on internal components caused from the byproducts of recirculated exhaust gas.
