Based on years of intensive R&D and meticulously designed field test trials, hydraulic equipment operating with DYNAVIS® formulated fluids have credibly demonstrated their potential to achieve
- up to 5-15% more hydraulic power under full-load conditions
- up to 5-15% lower fuel consumption to achieve the same amount of work
- faster response to operator control
- higher flow rate at peak operating temperatures
When the "Heat is On" - Conventional Fluids Lose Their "Punch"
With conventional hydraulic fluids, the hydraulic system performance suffers at or near maximum operating temperature. High temperatures "thin out" or reduce the hydraulic fluid's resistance to flow (viscosity), leaving the vanes or pistons of the hydraulic pump unable to push an adequate amount of fluid. The fluid recirculates, creating what's known as "internal leakage".
The more fluid that recirculates, the higher the temperatures become within the system because of the additional frictional heat that's created. This leads to a downward spiral in performance which causes the equipment operator to "step on the gas pedal" to maintain performance.
Using more fuel to do the same amount of work is inefficient and expensive. Things get worse as the hydraulic system becomes progressively less responsive and work productivity falls significantly. When the hydraulic system goes down, so do the hydraulic-driven tools that it powers. Stress increases for hydraulic system components such as pumps, hoses, and seals – resulting in reduced service life.
Not surprisingly, the service life is also cut short for the system's conventional hydraulic fluid, which began the downward spiral in response to high operating temperatures.
The DYNAVIS® Effect
DYNAVIS® formulated fluids retain viscosity in the face of high operating temperatures — when conventional fluids grow weak. As a result:
- Pump performance remains stable
- Fluid temperature is kept under control
- Overall stress on the system is kept in check
- Wear and tear on hydraulic system components is kept within normal parameters
Fuel consumption is significantly less than that of a conventional hydraulic fluid.
The greater the stress placed on hydraulic equipment, the higher the gain from using only DYNAVIS® formulated hydraulic fluids.
