The Advantages of a Lube Oil Centrifuge

Lube oil centrifuges have gained popularity in recent years for a variety of industrial applications. The design of these devices allow used oil to be recycled--on board--in a spin-type bowl that traps contaminants, eliminating the need for frequent or prescribed oil changes. Lube oil centrifuges can be used in almost any engine including drilling rigs generators, mining rigs, heavy construction equipment, marine vessels and big-rig diesel trucks. Since the centrifuge device can be size-fitted for any application, even small car and truck oil can be recycled in the centrifuge. The benefits provided by using a centrifuge to reclaim oil cover a variety of areas and concerns. Cost Savings     

  • Industrial engines, heavy construction equipment and big-rig trucks account for a significant amount of the oil used and discarded every day. By eliminating the need for purchasing and changing oil and oil filters, the corporate segment of the population can benefit financially from a well-maintained centrifuge. Cost savings include the labor and time aspects to perform traditional oil changes. Considering the amount of oil used by major industry, the saving costs can be substantial.

  •     Time Savings    

  • Since traditional oil changes require time from maintenance crews, including in some cases travel to the maintenance locations, the larger industries can save untold man-hours and time when they run stationary centrifuge machines that require only the twist of a valve to start the recycling process. The centrifuge manufacturer installs these large units--on-site--which use the engine itself to pump oil through the centrifuge after special adapters have been installed. Reclaiming used oil on-site also eliminates the cost of shipping and storage of bulk oil containers.
  •     Increased Operational Engine Life    

  • ·  Lube oil centrifuges not only recycle and clean oil, but remove minute particles that are often missed by conventional filters. It does so by spinning the liquid to the outside trap surface of a bowl, reaching speeds of 7000 RPM. This action, at very high revolutions, separates unburned fuel, soot, metals, acids, dirt and other contaminants from the sump, pan or oil collector on a microscopic level. Most oil filters remove particles that range from 5 to 10 microns in size; by contrast, the centrifuge can remove particles as small as 1 micron.
  •     Environmental Benefits    

  • ·  The environment can benefit from the use of lube oil centrifuges in the long run by lessening the demand for oil. Petroleum production requires research, development and discovery; the use of a centrifuge on-site, by contrast, results in reclaimed oil, eliminating the need for disposal or dumping as well. The waste product that comes from a lube oil centrifuge forms a solid cake, which is easier to dispose of and has less impact on the environment than the comparable contaminated fluid, according to Activar Technical Products, a centrifuge maker.
