There is a new high-performance Fuel Economy hydraulic fluid developed with DYNAVIS® Technology by Total Lubrifiants Company (France). Set for launch on October 1, the new multi-grade hydraulic fluid will be branded as "Equivis FE" and will be distributed globally with a focus on markets in Asia-Pacific，Africa and South America.
With DYNAVIS® Technology, Total’s new hydraulic fluid comes with a number of significant benefits built-in. Principal among them is Fuel Economy. Hydraulic fluids formulated with DYNAVIS® Technology have proven in a series of field tests to reduce fuel consumption in an approximate range of 5 to 30 percent.
DYNAVIS® Technology saves fuel and preserves hydraulic power by reducing a power-sapping phenomenon in hydraulic fluid pumps known as "internal leakage." All types of hydraulic pumps are vulnerable to this phenomenon, which occurs to a greater or lesser extent depending on working conditions.
Equivis FE, the DYNAVIS®-formulated Total fluid can maintain the stability of the power output of the hydraulic pump, even after many hours of work under maximum load. With better agility and performance, the equipment completes more load cycles and/or realizes dramatic fuel savings.
With Total’s new high quality, multi-grade hydraulic fluid, internal leakage is diminished by the broader temperature operating range that Equivis FE provides, thereby improving equipment productivity and fuel efficiency. Even the normal wear and tear of seals and other hydraulic components is expected to be diminished.
The market acceptance for premium lubricants, and especially for high efficiency hydraulic fluids is growing, as fleet owners discover the savings available to them in terms of Fuel Economy. Meanwhile, operators have experienced an improved responsiveness to control commands that DYNAVIS® Technology provides when compared to monograde factory fills. Evonik Oil Additives covers both of these benefits in detail in a complete set of marketing tools it distributes to leading oil marketers of DYNAVIS® formulated fluids.
