ll Enviro-Save products are thoroughly researched and technically formulated to provide the safest and most compatible treatment for each type of component being treated. We believe that today's lubricants are sophisticated products which create an optimum anti-friction environment within the performance limits of any separately applied medium. However, it is still possible to obtain extra benefits in the sphere of friction reduction by changing the nature of the bearing surface. This is how one application of Enviro-Save Metal Treatment achieves reductions in friction and wear. Oil sampling before and after treatment will show reductions in wear-metal content, and a 50 % reduction in wear rates is common. Treated engines also show reduced sludge and carbon build-up.
Enviro-Save products are not "oil additives, " which by design alter the characteristics of the lubricant (oil or grease); and even though the engine's oil and fuel are used to transport the Enviro-Save Metal Treatment to all bearing surfaces, Enviro-Save products have no effect on these fluids by way of altering their characteristics.
Unlike oil additives, Enviro-Save Metal Treatment requirements are based on the surface area to be treated, not the oil system capacity. In the case of any engine, experience has shown this to be related to the cubic displacement.
Enviro-Save Metal Treatment reduces exhaust emissions by lowering fuel consumption, improving combustion and burning less oil.
Experience with this type of product shows that emission reductions as high as 50% in hydrocarbons and 30% in carbon dioxide can be achieved depending on the mechanical condition of the engine before treatment.
Enviro-Save Metal Treatment reduces fuel consumption. Test results on cars treated with the Powertrain Protection Kit have shown reductions in fuel consumption of 10%, some higher; new engines will return the lowest figures because they will still be operating near maximum cylinder efficiency. Older engines will exhibit the highest benefit as the treatment restores lost cylinder efficiency.
Fuel savings depend on how the vehicle is driven. For example, if you continue to drive at your normal pace, you will save fuel due to the higher mechanical efficiency of the vehicle. However, a driver who takes advantage of the improved performance of the powertrain for faster acceleration and/or speed, will not see the same fuel savings. Such is the experience of the race driver, who will be only too happy to use the faster acceleration.
REDUCED WEAR/LONGER LIFE
Enviro-Save Metal Treatment reduces wear. A 50% reduction in wear rates is common, but this can vary with service hours/distance on the unit treated. Oil sampling before and after treatment will show the reduction in wear-metal content by analysis.
(To obtain truly comparative results, it is very important to be consistent in the service hours/mileage on the sample oil and in the method of extracting the oil sample. The best method for obtaining true, representative samples is to always take them when the oil is hot and the engine is running; this requires a special sampling valve to be fitted in an oil pressure point, or the use of a portable sampling pump for extracting directly from the sump via the dipstick tube).
Enviro-Save Metal Treatment improves power output from engines in two ways: 1) by reducing friction horsepower and 2) by restoring engine output through recovery of compression.
Dynamometer tests performed by race car owners after treatment confirm that an increase of 10% in horsepower is common.
As operating time increases on engines, wear particles and dirt such as carbon, varnish and dust, accumulate on cylinder walls, rings and ring grooves. This will eventually lead to blowby and reduced compressions.
Enviro-Save Engine Treatment has a very effective cleanser which will clean out and disperse these deposits. As the ring grooves are cleaned and the treatment progresses, blowby is reduced, and compression restored or normalized. Balanced compressions improve efficiency.
Enviro-Save Engine Treatment often shows its effect by an increase in idle RPM; this is due to less friction throughout the engine, and normalized compression. However, higher idle RPM will normally only be experienced on carburetor-equipped engines. On fuel-injected diesel and gas engines, the governor or computer controls idle speed at a fixed RPM.
LOWER OPERATING TEMPERATURES
Enviro-Save Metal Treatment reduces the heat passing into the cooling system due to lower cylinder wall friction and less fuel being burned.
Similarly, by friction reduction it reduces the heat passing into the lubricating oil, as indicated by temperature gauges in transmissions, gears, bearing housings and air-cooled engines.
However, in engines and machinery where the coolant and/or the lubricating oil temperature is thermostatically controlled, it is necessary to record the temperature-rise across each system in order to assess friction heat reduction.
DRY START PROTECTION
The highest wear rates in engines occur during cold start-up and during the first few minutes of running. In this period over 80% of wear takes place, until lubricating oil has reached the extremities of the lubricating system. However, Enviro-Save Metal Treatment provides a resident dry lubricant on all bearing surfaces, ensuring lubrication and protection at all times which reduces wear rates considerably.
REDUCED OIL CONSUMPTION
Enviro-Save Engine Treatment normally reduces oil consumption, sometimes by as much as 50%. However, this benefit would not normally be felt in a previously overheated or high wear engine where oil consumption is due to excessive clearances at piston rings, and valve seals or other mechanical damage.
Enviro-Save Engine Treatment is not a "cure-all-in-a-can."
Normal oil consumption takes place due to oil burning. This occurs mainly at the upper end of the cylinder when oil trapped in the pore structure of the cylinder walls and around the upper piston rings and gro
Oil consumption is also improved by the release of sticking piston rings, achieved by the cleaning action of the treatment.
Enviro-Save Metal Treatment provides protection, beyond most lubricants, against corrosion damage on bearing surfaces caused by moisture, air or acids. It provides excellent off-season protection where equipment is idle or stored for long periods.
Enviro-Save Engine Treatment will enable an engine to turn over more easily and faster. The starter will use less cranking power thus benefiting the starter motor, battery and alternator, especially in cold climates.
Enviro-Save Metal Treatment contributes to smoother-running equipment. Reduction of friction and normalizing of compression results in the smoothing out of the mechanical motions in machinery and reciprocating engines. This smoothing out signifies a reduction in the vibrations which can be an insidious cause of component wear/failure.
Enviro-Save Metal Treatment reduces noise levels by reducing vibration. In industrial applications this feature could be beneficial to the workplace environment.
EASIER GEAR SHIFTING
Enviro-Save Gear Treatment will enhance the shifting of manual gears which are hard or sticky to operate; freedom of shifting improves with operating time, and transmissions operate cooler and quieter.
