Thread: Cryogenic parts

    Cryogenic parts

    After some people were discussing it another thread I found a price list and it looks pretty cheap.

    Might send my golf clubs in too!
    I think I might look into this when I replace my 05 washers.

    Looks like it would probably be about 5-10 bucks!!

    Yup eventually when I get the metal washers in there they are taking a cryo bath first.

    are you sending to them. Please post when/who you send them too. I'd like to do this to some other stuff.

    This guy had his gas mileage go from 50 to 120!!! and break rotors last 3-6 times as long.

    I wonder if sending an impeller and SS ring would make it pretty solid.

    Just curious why you guys want to cryo treat the metal washers?

    The metal washers are treated to a hardness of 64 rockwell for a reason. We can get them harder, but you don't want them much harder than the gear, or the gear will deteriorate.

    I would not mess with them!

    It may affect the Hardness also. Cryo is usually done during the HT process. Before the last temper. If you send out washers after they have been heat treated you likely will cause them to distorte. If you are going to do this I would say at the least they need to be lapped back flat.

    If Jerry and Rodney don't think it's a good idea then I'm not going to worry about it.

    I read where it only increases the golf club efficiency about 2-5% so not sure it's worth the trouble.

    120mpg? I call BS. For the right engine parts it might be ok.
    I would not waste money on that washer. Sure the washer would last longer, but performance gains from a better washer? Not likely. How long do the steel washers last now?
    There are some parts made to wear and sacrifice themselves, so you can replace less expensive parts.
