Island City Single Fluid Forward Mobile Hydraulic System

Island City Single Fluid Forward Mobile Hydraulic System

The Island City Single Fluid Forward mobile hydraulic system is a revolutionary system for organizing, storing, heating, cooling, controlling and distributing hydraulic fluids and lubricants while protecting critical systems. Single Fluid Forward (SFF) minimizes POL logistics, reduces components, reduces cost, reduces weight and improves readiness. Fully compatible with MIL-L-2104 and MIL-L-46167 POL, mineral and synthetic motor oils.

How it Works:

The Single Fluid Forward is a generation forward technology to reduce POL inventory/logistics and enhance vehicle capability. It uses One Fluid (Engine Oil), One Check Point, One Fill Point, One Minute PMCS, One Lube, and is suitable for all climates.

Conventional tactical vehicles typically employ 3 to 4 different operating fluids. The Single-Fluid-Forward hydraulic system employs 1 fluid –engine oil. SFF can integrate all tactical vehicle fluid systems including: torque converter, transmission, primary steering, secondary steering, regulated hydraulic supply, auxiliary hydraulic supply, transmission retarder, and more. A crankcase top-off provision automatically maintains engine oil level without operator intervention.

A single reservoir equipped with unique cascaded compartments prioritize, distribute and provide a fluid reserve to “shared yet isolated” systems. With one fluid there is only one level to check, a simple visual PMCS instantly verifies all integrated systems. No dipsticks to pull, no plugs to remove.
