The Volvo Penta engine is meticulously designed at each stage, the components have almost absolute precision when assembled. A typical example is Volvo cylinder head, which is an important part of the cylinder system as well as creating the power value of the engine. To learn more about the cylinder head, also known as the cylinder cap of the Volvo Penta engine, please read the article below.
General information about Volvo cylinder head
What is Volvo cylinder head?
Volvo cylinder head TTTT is the part located above the cylinders on the top of the body in an internal combustion engine. The engine cover together with the cylinder wall and piston top combine to form the combustion chamber and the working volume of the engine. The connection between the cover and the engine body is sealed by head gasket. In most engines, the head is responsible for providing space to attach the air and fuel components to the cylinder, and to allow exhaust gases to escape. The engine head is also the place to install the valve for fuel injectors.
The head has a complicated shape depending on Volvo Penta engine type and valve position. For engines using the side valve mechanism, the lid structure is much simpler than that of engines using suspension valves. To receive a quote for a Volvo Penta cylinder head, please click on the image below.
The main task of Volvo Penta cylinder head
Volvo cylinder head is responsible for mounting parts such as the fuel distribution mechanism, fuel injectors, camshafts (in top camshaft engines – OHV), valve guides, valve seats, and mechanisms. intake manifold and exhaust manifold. In addition, in the body of the cap, there are many holes or locations to install components such as injectors, nozzles, fuel injection pipes, coolant reservoirs, fuel and lubricating oil compartments. Sensors, such as temperature sensors or cam position sensors, are also located in the cylinder head.
The internal structure of Volvo Penta cylinder head
Volvo Penta cylinder head needs to be tightly fitted to the body to create a sealed combustion chamber, which helps the engine maintain high compression and combustion pressure. Although the surface between head and the body of engine is smooth, flat, and parallel. Therefore, the junction between the engine cover and the engine body is sealed by the gasket due to the flexibility and elasticity of the gasket. When the head is tightened with the body, the compressor cover gasket is compressed, and the frictional contact surface is large enough to seal and resist the effects of the combustion gas pressure in the cylinder.
For diesel engines, because the compression ratio is much higher than that of gasoline engines, Volvo Penta cylinder head has a more solid design, and it is necessary to use a locking mechanism to close the engine cylinder head.
