HiTEC® 544 has been designed to provide superior performance over traditional hydraulic additive systems in severe duty and high-load applications. It increases the life of the hydraulic fluid whilst enabling operators to reduce the environmental impact of their operations.
HiTEC® 544 delivers performance benefits in a number of key areas:
Excellent oxidation stability
Capability to extend the oil drain interval resulting in reduced disposal costs. Potential to improve efficiency during the length of the oil drain due to decrease in deposits
Good sludge and particulate control
Improved protection of critical components with tight tolerances such as servo-valves and pumps
Exceptional wear protection
Delivering maximised equipment life and reduced maintenance costs
Excellent separation from water
Water contamination rapidly separated and maintained during service
Effective foam control in most base oil combinations
Additive package includes antifoam, precludes the need to purchase a separate foam inhibitor
The standard treat rate for HiTEC® 544 is 0.82 % wt. It has been extensively tested in a range of Group I and II base stocks. HiTEC® 544 has demonstrated compatibility with calcium and zinc-containing hydraulic fluids. A small number of systems may require draining or flushing prior to first use. Please contact your Afton Chemical representative for specific recommendations.
