Function from a cylinder liner

A cylinder liner is a cylindrical part to be fitted into an engine block to form a cylinder. It is one of the most important functional parts to make up the interior of an engine.
This is called Cylinder liner in but some countries (or companies) call this Cylinder sleeve. These are main functions of Cylinder Liners.

Heat transfer

The cylinder liner acts as inner wall of the cylinder and forms a sliding surface for the piston rings while retaining the lubracant within. The most important function of cylinder liners is the excellent characteristics as sliding surface. That is why you should always prefer a high quality standard liner with a certificate.
