Applied Colloids proposes the use of its proprietary nanofluid technology as an add-in treatment process for gearboxes and transmissions of military ground vehicles that would reduce the internal friction generated in them. This would reduce the vehicle fuel consumption by 2 to 3%. It would also reduce the wear and maintainance costs for this equipment. Applied Colloids will form the nanofluids in its facilities and the Gear Research Institute (Pennsylvania State University) will test and evaluate these nanofluids. Their evaluation will also include formulation and cost estimation expertise.
