Smoother operation for peak efficiency and less hydraulic-pump copper corrosion.
Less corrosion, wear and breakage
The level of copper protection was measured under identical conditions in bronze-alloy cylinder sleeves run with Qwiklift HTB, a leading THF and an OEM fluid. The cylinder liner run with Qwiklift HTB (a) shows no corrosion, abrasive wear or fatigue failure, while both the cylinders run with a THF (b) and an OEM fluid (c) showed substantial abrasive wear polishing and metal fatigue failure.*
Reduced copper accumulation
Qwiklift HTB was compared to a leading OEM-brand THF in a pump test that measured the amount of copper that accumulated in drain oil. High copper levels indicated excessive wear and/or corrosion.
The pump running with Qwiklift HTB not only completed the 400-hour test, but the amount of copper in the oil was minimal and the pump remained in excellent operating condition. The pump run with the THF did not complete 400 hours and had four times more copper in its oil.
Qwiklift HTB contains superior anti-wear additives that provide high-quality protection for increased driveline life. Test results show virtually no pitting on critical gear surfaces with Qwiklift HTB (a) for reduced wear, less maintenance for bearings and transmission parts, and greater protection of hydraulic pumps. In contrast, gears run on competitive fluids show mild to severe pitting (b).
