A cooled aluminum ring carrier piston from Mahle was developed for the heavy-duty range of commercial vehicle diesel engines with peak cylinder pressure of 200 bar (2900 psi). Features include use of high-temperature-resistant aluminum alloy and a cooled ring carrier to further extend service life and lower the bowl edge temperature by up to 30ºC (54ºF). Other benefits include improved oil consumption, blow-by, and appearance of the pistons as well as production-tolerant dimensions.
