The Ultimate Protection Against Metal-To-Metal Wear
Daniel W., Q-Dot, Inc.
We have recently had the opportunity to experience the value of Steel Shield first-hand.
We had replaced a 50 ton compressor at a cost of approximately $10,000.00, and after the replacement we added Steel Shield to the crankcase. Four months later, when we revisited the unit we found it to be in a vacuum. Upon inspection, we discovered four refrigerant leaks. The leaks were repaired and the unit was restarted after replacing the refrigerant and adding a new oil charge. Again using Steel Shield additive, we restarted the unit and found that the compressor was undamaged. We also discovered that after using the Steel Shield, the compressor under full load, operated a reduced amperage (3 amps) lower.
We feel that the steel Shield was responsible for preventing a potential compressor failure but also was the cause of the reduced amperage draw and reduced energy consumption.
Thank you for recommending Steel Shield to Q-Dot. We look forward to continuing to use it in the future for our benefit and for the benefit of our customers.
