Heavy-duty engines

In the eighties, plungers for in-line, distributor and single-cylinder pumps for marine diesel and construction machinery engines and for stationary engines (emergency generator units) were already being PVD-coated by Oerlikon Balzers.

It is precisely in these applications that the use of heavy oil and contaminated fuels gives rise to premature wear and high maintenance costs. It is for this reason that BALINIT®-coated plungers are original equipment in injection pumps for heavy-duty engines.
