Saving costs by cleaning oil instead of disposal

RENOWNED for its ability to design and develop cost-effective hydraulic and pneumatic solutions for its clients, Union Hydraulics is now an official distributor and partner of Clean Oil Services (COS).
COS’s Lubemaster oil cleaning system is a world-class innovation developed in Australia following years of oil analysis experience.
Traditionally, oil analysis laboratories advised their customers to change and dispose of oil when it became contaminated with particles or water; despite being contaminated with water, the disposed oil was generally in good condition and offered considerable service life.
The Lubemaster system uses centrifuge technology to reduce contaminated particles in oil to submicron sizes, and a vacuum then removes all three forms of water – free, emulsifi ed and molecularly-bonded – from the oil. The system also takes out the gases that naturally build up during the oil’s service life. Electricity is the only consumable used in the removal of these contaminants.
Lubemaster can be used to clean diesel fuel and transformer, hydraulic, compressor and light to heavy gear oils. Wherever possible, the system is designed to clean oil while host equipment remains in operation, and it can generally achieve a ‘better than change’ level of cleanliness.
According to COS, flushing existing oil is far more effi cient, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly than replacing the oil; it also offers cost savings because clients do not having to shut down machines for oil maintenance.
COS’s commitment to extend oil service life is backed by its oil analysis laboratory, which ensures oil cleaning is conducted in a safe manner and with no risk to equipment. The oil’s ‘before and after’ cleaning conditions are monitored to ensure required cleanliness levels are achieved. According to COS, the end result is a lubrication cost saving of at least 50 per cent plus an increase in machine life and production

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a
    fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome.
    Superb Blog!
