UNIVERSAL TORQUE FLUID
Texas Refinery’s Universal Torque Fluid is a high-performance tractor fluid and contains enhanced additive packages to effectively protect gears, clutches and pumps by providing oxidation resistance, anti-wear protection, wear tolerance and enhanced performance in temperature extremes and Balanced Anti-Wear to prevent steel on steel, while protecting yellow metals harsh conditions. While Texas Refinery is proud to display the TractorLife.com Authenticated Mark, we’ve taken another big step and formulated more protection chemistry in our product than required . . . to provide your equipment with the best possible protection! Oxidation causes the formation of sludge deposits in a hydraulic system, which reduces performance and shortens the life of any tractor. Oxidation protection found in Universal Torque Fluid will keep your hydraulic parts cleaner and eliminate sludge. The fluid doesn’t have to be replaced as often and you will experience better overall performance, gear protection and reduced brake noise. The gears, bearings and soft, yellow metals in hydraulic pumps today require the chemistry formulated in Universal Torque Fluid to provide the necessary wear protection. Other hydraulic tractor fluids do not have the load carrying, anti-wear and extreme pressure characteristics – as a result, severe ridging, visible wear and scoring may occur on gear parts. Low quality hydraulic tractor fluids lack the chemistry to protect against the effects of water contamination. Water in the oil creates a corrosive mixture, and the corrosive mixture will then erode the yellow metal on hydraulic pumps, causing deep scratches on the pump’s brass piston shoes. Corrosion often leads to sluggish tractor performance and potential hydraulic pump failure. Texas Refinery’s Universal Torque Fluid contains additional corrosion additive chemistry to protect the parts from corrosion and erosion, optimizing tractor performance and reliability. Brake chatter can be annoying for a farmer and damaging to the tractor if allowed to continue over a long period of time. When braking, a loud squeaking noise can be heard, and the operator may feel vibration. Many users who switch to TRC’s Universal Torque Fluid find their brake chatter stops, thanks to the frictional characteristics of the product. Better braking definitely leads to better safety!
