Cost-Saving Oil Recovery Treatment Solutions
The automotive industry, by its nature, consumes huge quantities of lubricants; from engine oils and transmission oils poured into powertrain systems to hydraulics oils used on stamping presses and injection molding machines. In almost every powertrain or assembly plant dozens of tons of waste lubricants are disposed every year, representing not only a recurrent operating cost but also a real threat to the environment.
However, most of these used lubricants could be recovered and used again. From function testers, stamping presses and hydraulic robots, the correct treatment of recovered oil is a source of immediate cost savings as well as being good for the environment.
Steps to remove contamination from oil
By applying filtration and separation technologies to remove contamination and improving the quality, used oils can be recovered:
Pre-Filtration: Removing large solid particles from the oil can be achieved with bag filters.
Filtration: Using SUPRAdisc™ will remove solid particles, gels and colloids from the oil.
Separation: Athalon™AN or AS filter grades will remove free and dissolved water from the oil efficiently.
Pall Filtration and Separation technology applied on oil recovery treatment enables car makes and suppliers to:
- Reduce the consumption of fresh oils
- Reduce running costs
- Improve the overall carbon footprint
