A combustion chamber is that part of an internal combustion engine (ICE) in which the fuel/air mix is burned. ICEs typically comprise reciprocating piston engines, rotary engines, gas turbine and jet turbines.

The combustion process increases the internal energy of a gas, which translates into an increase in temperature, pressure, or volume depending on the configuration. In an enclosure, for example the cylinder of a reciprocating engine, the volume is controlled and the combustion creates an increase in pressure.

In a continuous flow system, for example a jet engine combustor, the pressure is controlled and the combustion creates an increase in volume. This increase in pressure or volume can be used to do work, for example, to move a piston on a crankshaft or a turbine disc in a gas turbine. If the gas velocity changes, thrust is produced, such as in the nozzle of a rocket engine.

Over time, scratches and divets reduce the efficiency of the cylinder. Carbon deposits within the engine further reduce the overall efficiency of the engine. TK7 works to remove carbon deposits within the engine and to fill in scratches and divets with the unique synthetic lubricant left behind during the burn cycle. The combination of detergent, synthetic lubricant, and combustion improvement all work together to extend the operating life of the engines and provide improved performance and efficiency.
