Tests For Coolant Presence in Engine Oil (Gas & Diesel) & Automatic Transmission Fluid # 80900

Tests For Coolant Presence in Engine Oil (Gas & Diesel) & Automatic Transmission Fluid # 80900

Detects 0 - 6% coolant contamination in Engine Oil (Gas & Diesel) & ATF where this is a growing problem for Automotive & Heavy Vehicles.

Engine & Transmission should be at operating temperature no more than 10 minutes prior to testing. Remove the oil or transmission dip stick, use a clean cloth & wipe the fluid from the dip stick. Insert the dip stick into the oil or transmission fluid & immediately remove. Place the fluid end of the stick against the pad on the test strip. After 60 seconds compare the colour of the test strip pad to the colour codes on the bottle side panel.

NOTE: In new vehicles ATF may come with a Check Plug (containing No Dip Stick).

Fluid Moisture Test Strips for 5 Oils # 80600

Fluid Moisture Test Strips for 5 Oils # 80600

Detects 0 - 5% Moisture Content In:
Engine (Gas & Diesel) Oil, ATF, Power Steering, Hydraulic & ALL Brake Fluids DOT 3, 4, 5.1, Synthetics & Conventional.

Water reduces the fluid's ability to do its work and promotes corrosion. In the case of the Brake Fluids, water reduces the boil point of the fluid potentially causing a safety hazard event. Fluid Diagnostic Test Strips assess the health of the fluid and identify when a fluid needs to be changes. Determining the presence of water is important to maintain the integrity of the vehicle components and early detection of moisture will minimize the impact of corrosion - avoiding costly repairs and loss. Water breaks down oil-additive packages. It promotes the formation of acids that corrode metal surfaces, supports oxidation in mineral-based oils, supports biological or microbial growth, especially with prolonged idling.

Test strip must be used immediately after opening foil pouch.

Low Level - Wear Metal Ions Test Strips For All Automotive & Heavy Duty Vehicles # 80800

Low Level - Wear Metal Ions Test Strips For All Automotive & Heavy Duty Vehicles # 80800

TESTS: Engine (Gas & Diesel) Oil (400 ppm), Differential & Transmission (1000 ppm), Power Steering (200 ppm) & Coolant (10 ppm).

Identify the presence and degree of Low Level - Wear Metal Ions within a minute. Tests range from 10 - 1000 ppm. Any abnormal presence of METAL IONS requires immediate corrective action, resulting in less maintenance costs, higher operating efficiencies and increased enging and component life.

NOTE:
-METAL IONS count meets or exceeds the ppm per fluid as above, the fluids must be changed immediately.
-Extremely high METAL IONS ppm - possibility of component failure.
