3M™ Silicon Nitride Fuel Pump Rollers offer a more durable alternative to conventional rollers in high contact stress applications for light and heavy-duty diesel engines. Providing excellent mechanical reliability at high speeds and loads, these rollers help automotive OEMs meet the high pressures required to achieve emission standards. Additionally, these rollers can be used to replace metal components that are vulnerable to excessive wear, scuffing, and galling.
3M™ Silicon Nitride is an extremely hard and corrosion-resistant ceramic material that is 60% lighter than steel. This material, Sintered Silicon nitride (Si₃N₄), is designed to offer a combination of excellent properties, including thermal and impact shock resistance, electrical insulation, and wear resistance. 3M™ Silicon Nitride offers a wide degree of design flexibility, making it an outstanding alternative to stainless steel, superalloys, tungsten carbides, and first-generation ceramics such as Al₂0₃ and ZrO₂. These performance benefits make 3M™ Silicon Nitride a perfect solution for fuel pump rollers.
