Power Steering Fluid
Recommended for all vehicles which is inclusive but not limited for Cars, Heavy duty vehicles and others.
Power Steering Fluid provides excellent wear protection. Its fully synthetic formulation delivers better lubricity and reduced friction, resulting in cooler operating temperatures, longer component life and quieter operation. Power Steering Fluid is formulated with a high viscosity index. Its low pour point ensures immediate lubrication at start-up and in cold temperatures, yet it resists thermal breakdown and maintains maximum protection in high temperatures.
Most power steering systems use a belt-driven pump to provide hydraulic pressure to the system. The pump, usually a rotary vane pump, is driven by the vehicle’s engine. As the speed of the engine increases, the pressure in the hydraulic fluid also increases, necessitating the incorporation of a relief valve to allow excess pressure to be bled away. While the power steering is not being used (driving in a straight line), twin hydraulic lines provide equal pressure to both sides of the steering wheel gear. When torque is applied to the steering wheel, the hydraulic lines provide unequal pressures, providing assistance in turning the wheels in the intended direction. Other modern hydraulic power steering systems include an electronic pressure valve which can reduce the hydraulic pressure of the power steering lines as the vehicle’s speed increases. This is known as variable assist power steering
