AFA has announced the availability of a new gallery cooled piston kit for the Cummins K19/ K38/ K50/ KTA19/ KTA38/ QSK19/ QSK38/ QSK50 Series engines. This gallery cooled piston design lowers the piston bowl temperature for more power, torque and fuel economy, the company says.
This piston kit contains piston body, piston pin and piston pin retainers. Piston rings must be ordered separately as there are different ring sets depending on specific application. It is used in industrial, marine and power generation applications.
The company says the piston is made from AFA’s proprietary formula of aluminum and other alloys for high strength and durability under extreme operating conditions. The NI top ring land insert is made of the highest quality nickel alloys, is resistant to corrosion and has ductile capabilities, AFA adds.
