These open bowl centrifuges work great at cleaning any type of oil. The “force settle” contaminants from the oil and allow for reuse of the oil in machines or as fuel. For oil over 5% solids, it’s best to settle the oil first, then run it through the centrifuge.
Volvo Aero and Rolls Royce both use this exact centrifuge to clean their cutting/tool fluid. It’s amazing what Vovlo did with the centrifuge, running it 20hrs a day, 6 days a week. They were very happy as this direct drive oil centrifuge outperformed the belt driven models. We also have customers in the mining industry and the oil and gas exploration fields.
The oil centrifuge is working in:
- Transmission Shops
- Machine Shops
The savings in oil costs are likely to pay back the centrifuge cost in no time. Oil is not getting any cheaper, so many shops have decided it makes more sense to clean and reuse their oil. And, those who have been using filters, often upgrade to these open bowl-type oil centrifuges. Some folks do try the pressure driven centrifuges, but don’t like that you have to babysit them. The larger bowl on the open centrifuges allows for less cleaning intervals and mess…you see why these are becoming so popular. If you aren’t sure whether the oil centrifuge is going to work on your specific fluid, there are a couple of tests I recommend.
- See if the contaminants settle from the oil over time. If so, you are golden as the centrifuge will remove those contaminants faster.
- Try the centrifuge for 30 days with our money back guarantee. I understand you want to be fairly certain it will work, and if you have oil, there’s a great chance. Look over the information and give me a call if you would like to discuss further.
There’s great opportunity to save oil and save money with these oil centrifuges.
“We reprocess and clean our cutting oil from our threading machines, and also reclaim the oil from the wash process. All of this goes into the settling tanks (upper right), gets pumped over to the Process tank (upper left) where it is released into the centrifuge. The good oil ends up in the lower left tank (where its returned to the machines) and the waste/overflow goes to the lower right, where we can let it settle again and run through the process one more time.Our Cutting Oil supplier tested our reprocessed oil and let us know it actually is ‘better than the original product’ as far as purity and lubricity!”– Larry, CA
