Cat 3500 series Engine Parts
Power for Industry
Empower service parts to suit 3508 | 3512 | 3516 – Power Generation | Off-Highway | Marine
Empower offers a good range of precision service components for the Caterpillar 3500 engine family – from small parts to cylinder packs, engine kits, valve train and cylinder heads. Mahle design engineers with their cumulative experience have spent years in research, development, in-house and field testing to enhance the sustainability of service componentry in today’s engine architecture.
Late model engines run very hot and dry, including those with EGR to meet the tightened emissions standards. Both conditions are tough on the ring pack in regard to abrasive wear from the EGR, or the added heat causing scuffing. The face coating on the top ring of the Empower ring pack is a Ceramic/Carbide fortified Moly-Plasma similar to the HVOF coating used in other industrial models. The plasma sprayed material is very hard and dense containing approx 30% Moly for good scuff resistance, and 40% Ceramic Carbide for enhanced wear resistance. This coupled with its face profile affords optimum emission control and excellent durability.
Empower parts for Caterpillar 3500 engines are underpinned by market leading technology from world class manufacturing centres and supported by strong after sales service.
Competence is Key
From the engineers desk to blue print, to prototype, to test centre and field testing, to production. Power cell units provide the necessary group parts for each cylinder. Gaskets, sealing components, valve train and service parts are engineered, manufactured and meticulously scrutinized to meet the strict QC standard. The product’s primary packaging is critical, as is secondary packaging for transit. Good service life and load carrying capacity can be attributed to the acme of today’s engineering & technology used in Empower’s service components.
