Formulated to exceed TO-4 and C-4 specifications. Power-Trans FD is undoubtedly one of our most impressive lubricating oils in our high performance line. Its boosted additive chemistry far exceeds Allison C-4 and CAT T0-4 specs. Allison and Caterpillar have established the industry standard for these types of lubricant products. They are considered the industry guidelines when cross referencing of acceptable fluid standards. Power-Trans FD, with its robust additive chemistry, exceeds the specifications of both these OEM’s, thus establishing a very high standard for lubrication protection and service life.
Finest Additive Chemistry
Power-Trans FD was engineered to greatly prolong the service life of heavy equipment. This fluid was designed for high performance, and created to offer much longer fluid service life. To accomplish these goals, the finest super refined thermal stable base stock oils were utilized. Next, top of the line top tier additives were selected. This unique package of base oils and additives work synergistically to offer the heavy equipment operator superior component protection.
Reduce Wear, Foam, Heat, and Seal Deterioration
Equipment utilizing CAT T0-4 fluids experience common issues such as excessive foaming, higher heat temperatures, higher wear, and faster seal deterioration. These fluids are often forced to operate in a vast variety of harsh environments over long tough time periods and beyond the distances that were originally specified. Standard spec TO-4 fluids are ultimately lacking under these extreme conditions. Power-Trans FD on the other hand offers the necessary heavy duty protection due to its robust PLUS additive chemistry and superior thermal stable base oils. Power-Trans FD, with its heavy duty anti-wear additives and anti-foam agents, vastly reduces wear, foam, heat, and minimizes seal deterioration.
Superior Cold Weather Service
Power-Trans FD delivers superior cold temperature flowability and fluidity. Power-Trans FD offers superior protection for critical parts and components during cold temperatures, especially during startup and initial operation. It is important these vital components do not experience unnecessary wear during initial cold temperature startup. Power-Trans FD fluid protects from startup to shutdown and beyond.
Longer Drain Intervals
Not all TO-4 and C-4 fluids utilize the necessary quality base oils and additive packages to deliver extended drain intervals. Like all standard or conventional lubricants, they tend to offer fluids that are formulated by accountants, not chemists. This means they try to create a product that meets a low price but falls far short in delivering the necessary performance that in the long run offers the heavy equipment operator the best value for their money. If extended drain intervals and lower downtime is the goal, then utilizing Power-Trans FD is the choice. You can expect your equipment to be safely and rigorously protected with this high performance fluid. In fact, operators that utilize this fluid and any fluid that we manufacture is entitled to utilizing our helpful free oil analysis. By scientifically analyzing Power-Trans FD, we have ensured that you can safely and effectively greatly extend lubricant drain intervals.
Better Gear Protection
Power-Trans FD has a very unique characteristic. The oil exhibits a slightly tacky feel. It gets this tackiness or clingability aspect through the use of a proprietary tackifier. This clingability feature allows Power-Trans FD to completely coat the gear components with lubricating oil. It helps to maintain a higher film of lubricant protection, which dramatically helps in reducing wear. By reducing wear, you are reducing friction, which leads to lower operating temperatures. This superior film strength protection means that Power-Trans FD offer great antioxidant characteristics which leads to efficiency in performance over a longer duration of time. Additionally, Power-Trans FD will offer 30% superior wear protection over standard CAT-4 fluids.
To recap, Power-Trans FD far surpasses Allison C-4 and CAT TO-4 specifications. It offers greatly reduced wear, reduces foaming and heat, helps preserve seals, delivers excellent thermal stability, stronger and more durable film strength, and offers long drain fluid intervals.
