The customer needed to manufacture brake fluid in-house to stop paying punitive import tariffs.
Therefore, we designed the plant to blend two-pack liquid systems from a major manufacturer into DOT 3 brake fluid. This met the import requirements and the technical standards required of the fluid.
Brake Fluid Blending requires a completely dry atmosphere because this type of fluid is strongly hygroscopic and any water absorption reduced its temperature range, compromising vehicle safety in heavy braking situations. To make this possible, a moisture free environment provided by a nitrogen blanket that was desiccated in silica gel columns.
