NORDE® FSR INCREASES FUEL EFFICIENCY VIA MPG IN TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES

INTRODUCTION

NORDE® technology was introduced into the existing oil of gear reducers located on an assembly line of a large automotive manufacturer. The objectives were to determine if NORDE® technology could reduce internal temperatures and the occurrence of pre-mature failure due to overheating in these gear reducers. Results were monitored by Thermos-Graphic Imaging.

Results

NORDE® technology reduced internal temperature by up to 13% against an established baseline.

CONCLUSION

NORDE® technology reduced internal temperatures by lowering internal friction and increasing oil lubricity. Although energy consumption was not measured, reduced energy consumption often results from gear reducers working more efficiently.
