Why would pilots consider an oil additive in their piston engine? How about reliability, longevity, and reduced engine maintenance cost. Face it, aircraft engines are very expensive and need to be absolutely reliable. How is it possible for an oil additive to have an appreciable effect on engine life? The answer is simple, by not allowing rust to form on highly loaded parts or deposits to build-up on critical parts; the engine continues to operate as if it were new. No rust means no premature overhaul due to failed camshafts. No deposits means no sticking rings, valves or poor compressions as well as a host of other technical benefits that are real and measurable each time you send in an oil sample. Laboratory analysis typically reports a 30% reduction in wear metals, which gives peace of mind when flying in challenging conditions. Read on to understand why CamGuard provides 16 ounces of prevention and the cure to premature maintenance.
CamGuard Aviationis a blend of high performance additives that fortify piston aircraft oils to provide the utmost in engine protection. Because of FAA regulations and costs, even the newest commercial aircraft oil technology is antiquated.
CamGuard Aviationaddresses the complex interrelated problems of corrosion, deposits and wear in air-cooled piston aircraft engines.
CamGuard Aviationcontains powerful multi-metal corrosion inhibitors that prevent rust and corrosion in infrequently used engines. Infrequent engine use can lead to rust pits forming on cam and lifter surfaces. This pitting can result in catastrophic spalling wear requiring a premature engine overhaul.
CamGuard Aviationcontains advanced anti-wear additives to dramatically reduce the wear of cams, lifters, cylinders, rings, gears and valve guides.
CamGuard Aviationprevents scuffing wear from “dry starts” by maintaining an active lubricant film on critical parts, even after periods of prolonged inactivity.
CamGuard Aviationutilizes unique ashless deposit control additives that prevent the formation of varnish and carbon deposits throughout the engine.
CamGuard Aviationuse in older engines allows component motions to free up sticky rings and valves, increasing compressions and reducing oil consumption.
CamGuard Aviationcontains seal conditioners that nullify the effects of heat and time to keep seals supple, flexible, and performing like new.
