Cold Pour® Benefits

Cold Pour® is a fluid additive which has an extremely low pour point, which when added to existing hydraulic or other petroleum based fluids, makes these fluids capable of cold weather operation.

Cold Pour® will lower the pour point of hydraulic and gear oils while not appreciably changing the high tempurature viscosity. By allowing the pour point to be lowered, hydraulic pumps are saved from cold start-up problems and possible burn outs.

To be effective, a minimum fluid dillution of 25 percent is required. Heavier fluids will require upwards of 50 percent dilution of Cold Pour® for satisfactory winter operation.

Mobile and automotive applications that Hydratec has been involved with have had great success in leaving the conditioned fluid in the equipment all year round, thereby doing away with the need to seasonably change the fluids.

One of the most revolutionary concepts in tractor power came about when the hydrostatic hydraulic transmission powered the Versatile Bi-directional tractor. Testing kits can be rented from Hydratec for a minimal daily fee and are ready to be shipped out across Western Canada and the States. No longer did a Saskatchewan farmer need to rotate his head 140 degrees to see what his rear mounted snow blower/implement was doing.


Cold_Pour - remanpumps

Plates, cylinder blocks, pistons, mechanical shaft seals, slippers and end caps are lapped to remove all wear marks and ensure perfect flatness of surface. Swash plates are assembled and running neutral is dialed in to ensure complete control of the pump when installed back on the machine. This test includes checking that the pump returns to running neutral and the relief valves are set to the factory specs.
