From speedboats and cars to motorcycles, 4-stroke motors power a variety of different types of equipment. If you want to know what a 4-stroke motor is, and some of the significant advantages of a 4-stroke motor, this guide is for you.
The 4-stroke motor is a very common variant of the internal combustion motor. Most modern internal combustion motor vehicles are four-stroke and are powered by gasoline or diesel. During motor operation, the piston goes through 4 events to achieve each power cycle. An event is defined as an upward or downward movement of the piston. After completing the 4 events, the cycle is complete and ready to start again. Four-stroke motors offer a good balance of power, reliability and efficiency.
The debate over which motor is better - the 4-stroke motor or the 2-stroke motor - has been going on for decades. Each of these two motors has its own advantages and disadvantages. Read on to learn why they are preferred by most vehicles.
In a two-stroke motor, the technology used results in more fuel consumption. In a 4-stroke motor, there are dedicated strokes for exhaust, consumption and power. Due to this, the crossover or ratio of fuel to exhaust is significantly lower. It helps to ensure better fuel economy in a 4-stroke motor.
The way a 4-stroke motor burns fuel has a lot to do with how it produces higher torque. Most 4-stroke motors produce more torque at low RPM than their counterparts. Admittedly, 2-stroke motors have higher RPM, but not as much torque as 4-stroke motors. The way fuel is burned in a 4-stroke motor ensures that maximum power is delivered to the crankshaft.
A 2-stroke motor spins at a very high speed, and the more it runs, the faster it wears. Each motor has a life cycle, which is how many revolutions it can withstand under test conditions. A 4-stroke motor can produce more torque at low RPM, and its low RPM greatly improves its life cycle.
The crankcase in a 2-stroke motor is lubricated by a combination of fuel and oil injection. When the motor burns fuel, it also consumes oil. It causes 2-stroke motor vehicles to run dirty and have higher emission levels.
A 4-stroke motor has a separate combustion chamber and oiling system. It ensures that the motor only burns fuel and the oil is handled separately.
For these reasons, 4-stroke motors are widely used. They last longer, perform better and have less impact on the environment. The technology surrounding motor function is constantly improving.
