ZP-900 Hydraulic Anti-Foam

	ZP-900 Hydraulic Anti-Foam

WHAT TO EXPECT: Foaming develops as pumps pull in air and mix it with oil. air may enter due to faulty seals, low fluid level, or even during normal operation. the result can be disastrous. Excess noise in the pump indicates cavitation, which is the formation and collapse of vapor bubbles in the oil. When bubbles collapse, the effect is that of miniature hammer blows, which work to destroy the pump. ZP-900 guards against disastrous pump cavitation with a defoamant and against the power losses that occur when bubbles are in the hydraulic system. ZP-900 reduces the heat load and adds a viscosity index improver to keep oil from thinning out. Eliminate this major headache with ZP-900. At 120°F below, oil oxidizes very slowly. Above 135°F, the rate of oxidation doubles for each 18° increase in temperature. Oxidation leads to sludging, causes formation of harmful acids and creates more heat. Seals deteriorate and thin hot fluid leaks out. Hoses fail from being exposed to excess heat, resulting in more fluid loss, downtime, and housekeeping problems. ZP-900 will keep seals pliable, reduce heat and with our defoamant and viscosity improver, keep pumps from cavitating. Another reason for using ZP-900 Hydraulic Antifoam as oil seals become brittle, they loose their sealing ability. Leaks result. These leaks can be reduced by increasing oil thickness but this has other negative results, such as encouraging cavitation and increasing heat. ZP-900 corrects the imbalance with specific components to resolve basic problems in hydraulic systems. The best answer is ZP-900. Some hydraulic systems will not have the exact fluid for which they were designed. Viscosity may be incorrect. Formulation ingredients may be wrong or in too low a concentration.
