Drop-Out

Have you experienced Drop-Out? Though it’s not the most common issue—Once it happens to you, you’ll be begging yourself why you didn’t account in advance for it. Typically Drop-Out, or Valve Seat Recession occurs due to excessive heat, high-engine speed, and lack of lubrication. Simply put, Drop-Out is caused by plastic deformation formation under thermal stress. With ever-increasing temperatures and pressures being employed in heavy-duty engines, VSI’s become more and more at risk to Drop-Out—And Drop-Out puts your application at risk for catastrophic engine failure. It’s imperative that VSI’s do their job so that the rest of the engine can function successfully.
