Krytox™ for Heavy Duty Automatic Clutch
Engines and transmissions for heavy-duty trucks are engineered to deliver maximum power for a variety of hauling requirements. These engines can generate incredibly torque and engine loads that without careful monitoring can rip an engine apart from the inside out. In the case of automatic heavy-duty clutch systems, when an engine reaches its maximum rpm upper limit for that gear the automatic clutch disengages and prevents damage to the lower gear set. This is a critical component that protects and vastly extends engine life. If it’s not lubricated correctly, the clutch mechanism may fail to engage and lead to deep scarring, metal wear and potentially catastrophic engine failure.
