The choice of a product depends on various external factors. Price, quality, performance, and reliability are just some the considerations when choosing a product. The choice of industrial equipment also depends many of the same factors.
In choosing oil processing equipment, you will find that there are many different types of processing units intended for purification of different petroleum based oils and fluids.
There are a large number of manufacturing companies specializing in oil processing systems. These systems include a wide range of equipment used to process different lubricants, hydraulic and turbine oils, and complex systems for oil regeneration.
The purchase of equipment for the filtration and purification of used oils is justified through the saving of money and resources. Additionally, this equipment greatly helps in reducing problems with equipment failures and downtime, as well as reducing environmentally harmful waste oil products. Overall, these modern machines greatly increase the service life of industrial equipment.
When choosing the right processing equipment for your business, strict attention should be paid to the technical specifications of the filters that will be used by the processing equipment:
- The physical size of the oil filter. This key component of the purification system must be small enough to save space and weight, but have high filtration performance in both volume and filter fineness;
- Filter Test Results. Oil filters can be monitored in various ways, but one of the most common methods is the beta-factor test. The beta factor is calculated by dividing the number of the larger particles trapped in the filter medium by the number of particles of the same size downstream of the filter. For example, if the beta ratio is 10:1, it means that for every ten (10) particles that enter the filter, only one (1)passes through the filter without being trapped in the filter medium;
- Pore size of the filter medium; and
- Performance and rate flow.
According to studies conducted by General Motors, and published by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), it was determined that the service life of an engine can be increased eight times by using five (5) micron filter mediums instead of the standard 40mm filter medium found in most massed produced automotive oil filters.
This means that the steady improvement of oil filtration systems will continue as the cost of new equipment rises and consumers demand better equipment with longer service lives. There is an old saying that contends that oil does not wear out, it only becomes dirty. In any case, keeping oil clean and free from contaminants and moisture will greatly extend the service life of your electric power equipment and hydraulic systems.
The traditional oil change therefore, is no longer necessary. The high tech equipment available from GlobeCore can keep your insulating oils and hydraulic fluids in new like condition indefinitely. Oil Processing units from GlobeCore remove soot and sludge, dirt, moisture and dissolved gases.
If however, you decide to invest in oil processing equipment, it is worth taking the time to carefully consider your needs. You will soon learn that not all systems for filtering oil are created equal. Sometimes, bright brochures are specifically designed to confuse the customer. As the consumer and business manager, you should make sure that filtration and processing equipment has passed all the necessary tests and has verified results of performance. Here at GobeCore, we work with our customers to determine the best equipment that meets the needs of our customers. GlobeCore has a very large and diverse line of oil processing equipment. We work very closely with our customers so you get the best and most cost effective equipment to compliment the needs of your business.
