For automotive manufacturers, this provides the opportunity to offer extended warranties and enjoy improved productivity through reduced component failure. Krytox™ is extensively used in extreme conditions such as continuous high temperatures up to 550°F, and higher temperatures for shorter periods, depending on product grade limits.
Easy to apply, safe to use, and engineered for long term success.
Krytox™ lubricants have low volatility and high viscosity, providing long-life and excellent lubrication to the fan clutch bearing under high temperature conditions.
The higher output alternators used in today's vehicles generate a tremendous amount of heat, demanding the advanced and reliable, heat-stability and performance of Krytox™ greases.
Clutch Pilot Bearings
Pilot bearings lubricated with Krytox™ high performance lubricants will last longer and perform better than those lubricated with other synthetic lubricants due to the high-load capability and chemical inertness of Krytox™ products.
The sintered bearings used in cooling fans often fail in two ways: either the lubricant volatizes, or it degrades through oxidation. The use of Krytox™ prevents both of these modes of failure due to its low volatility and unsurpassed resistance to oxidation.
Heavy Duty Truck Automatic Clutch
Lubricating with Krytox™ mid-range viscosity and low volatility lubricants reduces the chance that the bearings will fail with the frequent gear-shifting and high loads experienced throughout the extended life of heavy duty trucks.
