- Many shops pre-treat all of their tools weekly with ER by placing them in a steel pan, covering them with ER and baking them for at least 4 hours at 250 degrees F on a shop hot plate or by placing the pan in an over. This significantly affects too life and work quality.
- A recommended mixture of quality cutting oil and 12% Energy Release will result in a cleaner and higher quality product.
- The metal conditioning technology of ER is very effective in treating high speed steel with cobalt end mills used for cutting operations in a milling machine.
Caution: One area where you should not use ER is in equipment which requires friction to operate, such as in some metal band saws. Also, use caution in applying ER on press fit and especially heated press fit applications as in wrist pins and valve guides, as the part my work loose.
What is Energy Release?
Energy Release (ER) is a liquid chemical formula designed to be added to your exiting oil to improve and protect moving metal parts.
- ER is not a typical oil additive but the first “true” and “original” Antifriction Metal Conditioner.
- ER is designed to be carried by existing fluids, i.e., motor oil, transmission oil and gear lube.
- ER treats metal surfaces in a time-temperature-pressure relationship. The higher the temperature or pressure, the shorter the time it takes to condition metal parts.
- ER significantly smoothes rough metal surfaces by modifying the first few microns of the surfaces.
- This unique chemical process results in stronger and smoother metal parts.
- ER has a definite residual effect on treated surfaces, even if the surface is dry after treatment.
- The metal surfaces treated with ER are resistant to abrasion, oxidation, rust and corrosion for year-round protection.
- ER is 100% Pure Concentrate.
- Energy Release treats your entire vehicle.
- ER does not contain PTFE, Moly, graphite, lead, zinc, metals or fillers.
- ER is nonflammable, nontoxic and environmentally friendly.
- Concentrated ER does not readily mix with water.
- DO NOT USE ER IN POSI-TRACTION OR LIMITED-SLIP DIFFERENTIALS.
- In old, dirty engines, change oil/filter and retreat with ER within 100-500 miles after initial treatment.
- Remember, older, dirty engines have accumulated deposits in the combustion chamber too. Energy Release fuel conditioner will clean these deposits and increase performance and economy.
What are some of the benefits of using Energy Release?
Many vehicles sit idle for long periods of time. Mother Nature takes its toll on them. The combustion process in an engine forms acids witch is highly corrosive when the vapors condense. These acids collect in the upper cylinder areas where their temperature is raised above their dew point. The acids condense and etch the cylinder walls and piston rings, which accounts for engine wear. Some of the benefits of using ER include the following:
- Reduced operating temperatures
- Easier cold-starts
- Extended oil life
- Increased performance
- Improved combustion efficiency
- Increased fuel economy
- Quieter operation
- Reduced oil consumption
- Prolonged vehicle life
The antifriction properties of Energy Release were enhanced by 40%.
- The Energy Release advanced formula offers improved anti-wear & extreme pressure performance.
- The improved formula is compatible with all engine oil grades, including low viscosity 0w20 oils.
- The improved formula has superior thermal stability and resists thickening at low temperatures and prevents breakdown and shearing, which degrades lubricity.
- The new Energy Release formula has advanced anti-corrosive and anti-oxidation properties to prevent the buildup of sludge. It is slightly more transparent in appearance and less viscous.
Energy Release Antifriction Metal Conditioner is the only oil additive that can be used in every lubricated system (not brakes) of your vehicle and equipment.
- ER Antifriction Metal Conditioner Engine Treatment is NOT an oil treatment. ER is carried by oil to points of friction, heat generation and wear. ER is activated by heat & friction, treating those areas directly.
- When added to your vehicle’s lubricating fluids, ER forms smooth broad surfaces that dramatically reduce friction and wear between metal moving parts. ER is ideal for gas and diesel engines, compressors, power tools, heavy equipment and much more.
The following tests were conducted at various independent laboratories around the U.S.
Physical Properties: Tested at the Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, Texas, for viscosity, friction reduction, pour points and flash points.
Results: ER passed stability and compatibility test. The product remained viscous and pourable at temperatures ranging from -30 degrees C, to 212 degrees C and would not flash, even when exposed to open flame.
Elastomers: Tested according to ISO standards at Fluid Engineering Services, Stillwater, Oklahoma, on the following sea materials: fluorocarbon (Viton), Nitrile (Buna-N), Ethylene Propylene, Neoprene and natural rubber.
Results: ER passed compatibility, swelling and deterioration tests. Neoprene actually shows a lower percentage of swell when ER is added.
Corrosion: Tested with oils and greases at Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, Texas, a U.S. Government-recognized facility. Tested at a major airline Test Center and Process Engineering Center to determine stock loss when various metals are immersed in ER.
Results: ER received an A-1 rating, actually improving the corrosion value of some gear oils. In the United Airlines test, panels of aluminum, steel, titanium and Inconel showed no pitting or etching after 24 hours of immersion in ER fluid.
Conductivity: Tested a Chem-Northern, Inc., Billings, Montana, for application in electric motors and utility vehicles.
Results: ER received a value of less than one-tenth of a micro-ohm per centimeter, showing that it is completely non-conductive. This also confirms a second test, conducted at Western States Equipment Company, Boise, Idaho, that there is no measurable metallic content in the products: no lead, zinc, copper, iron, chrome, aluminum, silicon, molybdenum or magnesium.
Compatibility: Tested with a variety of lubricating fluids to determine the possibility of detrimental effects when mixed with oils, greases and cutting fluids.
Results: ER is shown to be compatible with both synthetic and petroleum products, including cutting oils, two-cycle oils, gear oils, way oils, spindle oils, hydraulic fluids, greases, diesel fuels, mineral oils, vegetable oils, transmission fluids and general lubricants, both petroleum and synthetic-based.
Hydraulics: Tested by Fluid Engineering Services, Stillwater, Oklahoma, for both volumetric and mechanical efficiency.
Results: ER attained an incredible 8% increase in efficiency in initial and follow-up studies when added to hydraulic test system working at pressure over 400 PSI. The maximum increase of efficiency previously tested at the facility had been on 5%.
Dynamometer: Tested numerous times at independent laboratories on auto, diesel, truck, tractor and racing engines.
Results: In all these tests with ER, heat decreased, horsepower and torque increased through a wide power range. ER lowered the coefficient of friction of regular 10w30 motor oil from .082 to .020 remaining stable and functional at operating temperatures far beyond ordinary lubricants.
