Glycol in Automotive Transmissions
Coolant/Glycol in automotive transmissions is detrimental. Glycol can cause severe failure of the transmission if not detected early and these repairs can be very costly.
Symptoms of glycol/coolant entering the transmission oil system include shuttering during gear changes, decreased performance, pre-mature wear and sudden failure.
Cavpower offers a unique test designed to detect glycol using the latest technology, Gas Chromatography using Headspace sampling via vapour phase extraction.
Our test includes the following:
- PQI (Ferrous content)
- Visual Deposits
- Water content
- Elemental Analysis (ICP)
- Oil Condition (FTIR)
- Viscosity at 40oC
- Particle Count (ISO 4406)
- GC-Headspace Analysis
