                 HIGH PERFORMANCE DIESELS         Wouldn’t it be nice if you could purchase a new truck, semi or pickup, of course with a diesel engine and not have the usual emissions-related problems?

Modern Miracles   BY  BRUCE C. MALLINSON Chemical Engineering has come a long way during my working career. Back in the 1950s, anything made of plastic was usually of very poor quality. We only had black electrical tape, masking tape and scotch tape. Silicone sealants were almost nonexistent. Whoever thought there would be double-faced tapes that could hold panels on trucks and trailers without rivets and screws by the late 1990s, let alone what we have today in chemicals and plastics. The Cummins Engine Company came out with a chemical that would eat the carbon off an injector plunger while...
