CRC Industries Awarded Patent For Innovative GDI Cleaning Technology

U.S. Patent No. 10,267,227 fortifies CRC’s intellectual patent portfolio.

CRC Industries, a global manufacturer of specialty chemicals for maintenance and repair professionals and do-it-yourselfers, announced the issuance of U.S. Patent No. 10,267,227 for its CRC GDI IVD Intake Valve & Turbo Cleaner. The patented technology includes systems for the reduction or elimination of intake valve deposits in gasoline direct injection (GDI) engines and related methods, including the delivery device, conduit and actuator.

CRC GDI IVD Intake Valve & Turbo Cleaner is a revolutionary aerosol product that cleans GDI intake valves when applied through the engine’s air intake or throttle body and delivered directly to the back of the valves. As vehicle manufacturers began shifting to GDI technology, CRC was at the forefront in addressing the unique performance issues caused by carbon deposit buildup on GDI intake valves, such as hard starts, rough idle, poor acceleration, reduced fuel economy, excess emissions and power loss.

CRC has a rich history of innovation, driven by a core focus on identifying unmet needs in the marketplace and providing differentiated solutions for its customer partners and end users. Such examples include CRC Brakleen, one of the top-selling brake parts cleaners worldwide and CRC Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner.

“We continually strive to innovate by developing new solutions to maintenance issues and addressing the needs of our customers both now and for the future. It’s critical to be forward-thinking and stay ahead of technological advances,” said Adam Selisker, global vice president of research and development for CRC. “The number of vehicles with GDI engines in the U.S. is expected to exceed 80 million by 2021. Our proprietary technology provides a better service alternative to maintain GDI engines for both repair shops and vehicle owners, while also making the job manageable for the skilled DIYer.”

Prior to the invention of CRC GDI IVD Intake Valve & Turbo Cleaner, cleaning GDI intake valves was a costly, labor-intensive process, requiring engine disassembly to remove the valves for manual cleaning or walnut-shell blasting. With the new CRC GDI valve cleaner, the service can be performed up to 75 percent faster than previous methods and without engine teardown, freeing up valuable bay time for shops and saving hundreds of dollars for consumers.

CRC has produced an instructional video on the CRC GDI IVD Intake Valve & Turbo Cleaner, and can be viewed by visiting: https://bit.ly/2Wh0TtU.
