Additive for hydraulic steering Atomium HPS 60, tribotechnical compound
- Product Code: Agregats
- Availability: In Stock
- Oil additive to restore outlet pressure level of hydraulic power steering pump. It provides smooth work of the whole mechanism, removes noise, vibrations and facilitates steering wheel rotation. It also extends pump lifetime.
Suitable for all types of pump construction and compatible with all brands of HPS fluid.
- Ex Tax: 17.97€
The pump of HPS system should be treated in 2 stages.
The 1st stage:
Before applying shake the can with compound thoroughly until all the sediments (active components) are totally dissolved.
Pour half of Atomium HPS through the regular filling neck of the hydraulic power steering (30 ml for 1 liter of hydraulic fluid to be exact).
Start the engine and make 10-15 left-right turns of stirring wheel to maximum degree.
Drive in your normal regime for 15-20 minutes.
Then drive about 1500-2000 kilometers.
The 2nd stage:
It is recommended to change hydraulic fluid and filters (if there are any) after about 2000 km. However it is not obligatory if there are no complaints about the mechanism. In case of fluid replacement – add another half of compound (another 30 ml per 1 liter) following instructions above.
Precautions: Not harmful if applied correctly.
In case of a contact with skin remove the material wash out with warm water, and then wash again with soap
In case of contact with eyes wash out eyes with large amount of water
In case of swallowing consult a doctor
There may few reasons which affect the work of hydraulic power steering. Some of them bring up similar symptoms, some of them really hard to detect. Below we propose of short overview of some possible reasons of troubles to help you to understand what’s going on and make a correct decision.
AMOUNT OF FLUID IN THE SYSTEM
Obviously the whole system is designed for a certain volume of hydraulic fluid. The lower volume may downgrade of assistance forces and pump may start to make some whine noises. The loss of fluid may happen if there are leaks in the system. Flexible hoses paired with high pressure of liquid is not a very reliable combination.
Check up the mechanism to find some traces of fluid leaks to ensure that this is exactly the problem. Taking into account that fluid is actually oil – the traces may be dirty and sticky. May be you need just change a hose.
Evidently if an air bubble will try to move some lever arm instead of oil – the system will not work properly. Again it may be noticed as less assistance powers and some jerks on the wheel. Air can get in due to loosened fittings or dry and thin o-rings. Check these to fix the problem and make sure there are enough fluid in the system.
Clogs disturb fluid to come in correct place in correct amount. It doesn’t make its work easier. However sometimes it is hard to say – if there is some downgrades of assistance forces or not. Is there any pain in your arm muscles at the evening?
If you are suspicious that clogs are there – try to use Atomium tribotechnical compound HPS. First of all it cleans up friction surfaces in the pump and restores outlet pressure. The normal flow will consequently clean up some most disturbing clogs. But then it is highly recommended to change fluid to remove contaminations from the system after 1200-1500 km of mileage.
FRICTION WEAR OF PUMP
Worn pump means low pressure. And this is where Atomium compound HPS really helps. It is described in details on the main page of this product.
Oiladditive to restore outlet pressure level of pump in hydraulic powersteering system.
Oneof most frequent troubles of hydraulic power steering is lack ofpressure caused by worn pump. Due to wear moving parts of the pumpare gradually loosing their original shape. The fluid starts to seepthrough widened friction clearances and the outlet pressure goesdown.
Itmay cause some hum or whine, but not always. A driver may feel lessassistance from the mechanism, rotation of steering wheel requiresmore effort. The fluid cannot fully open the bypass valves, whichcauses a whistling noise at maximum steering turns.
Usualpractice is to change the pump. However it may be costly and takesome time. Another way is to restore worn details with the help ofAtomium HPS tribotechnical compound.
Itcreates special metallic layer over friction surfaces restoring theshape and size. Consequently it brings back normal operation mode ofthe pump and enough outlet pressure.
