50 • ROCK products • March 2019 EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY MAINTENANCE & WEAR PARTS Hydraulic fluid leaks can cost your business time and money, and can have a negative impact on the environment. Fortu- nately, there's a new chemical stop leak product you can recommend that seals existing leaks before they can cause extensive equipment downtime or damage and prevents new ones from forming. Bar's Leaks has introduced Hydraulic Seal (P/N H60), a pro - fessional-grade formula to repair leaks, reduce friction and wear, and renew seals and O-rings in hydraulic systems. It's designed to work in trucks, tractors, construction and agri- cultural equipment, as well as industrial applications. Hydraulic systems work under extreme conditions and over time, hydraulic seals and O-rings tend to dry out and shrink. This can cause fluid leaks that require continual topping-off and may cause the system to run low on hydraulic fluid, resulting in possible system damage. "Even the smallest hydraulic fluid leak can lead to prema- ture machinery failure, safety issues or costly maintenance bills," said Clay Parks, vice president of development for Bar's Leaks. "Bar's Leaks Hydraulic Seal Stop Leak and Con- ditioner reconditions and restores hard, brittle and worn out seals, O-rings and gaskets to reduce and prevent internal and external leaks during operation, which extends equipment service life." Developed for both low- and high-pressure hydraulic systems in agricultural, commercial, construction and industrial applications, Hydraulic Seal Stop Leak and Condi- tioner contains a premium high-quality durable field-proven zinc-based additive package along with viscosity modifiers to restore thermal stability and anti-wear additives in the hydraulic system. Reduced wear also reduces contamination, heat and downtime, while also improving equipment and fluid life. Additional rust and oxidation inhibitors provide stability improvements, which reduces the formation of sludge, var- nish and acids to keep the system clean. Bar's Leaks Hydraulic Seal works with 32, 46, 68 and all other petroleum and synthetic hydraulic fluids, pump seals, control valve seals, actuators, rams, cylinders, O-ring boss fittings and hydrostatic transmissions. Bar's Leaks, Thunder Creek Diesel Hauling Platform Now for Medium-Duty Truck Bodies Thunder Creek Equipment expanded its multi-tank platform of diesel fuel hauling solutions to include a new medium-duty truck body – the Multi-Tank Upfit – that can haul bulk diesel on the road without requiring a CDL or HAZMAT endorsement (Title 49 (CFR49) – local regulations may apply). Each truck is outfitted with eight independent 115-gal. tanks (920-gal. total capacity) that are only connected when a common manifold is opened at the pumping station. "This is the natural evolution of the multi-tank concept, allowing contractors, heavy equipment owners and fueling services to haul diesel in the platform that makes sense for their business," said Luke Van Wyk, vice president of sales, Thunder Creek Equipment. "This will allow fuel to be deliv- ered in the field by trusted employees without requiring a CDL or HAZMAT endorsement." The new Multi-Tank Upfit is currently compatible with the Ford F550 chassis (Class 5 – either with or without PTO). Thunder Creek plans on engineering the body for additional Class 5 and Class 6 trucks. The rear utility box of the new design contains the diesel pump and the manifold system. Options include a variety of meters for measuring, security and tracking, numerous reel options and lengths, a power- ful 4-micron filter to ensure greater fuel quality, and color schemes that match what is available with the Thunder Creek line of fuel and service trailers.
