Filtration Prolongs Oil Life, Protects Equipment
Filtering new and used oil prolongs oil life and protects equipment from wear.
Studies have shown that as much as 70% of all premature machine failures can be attributed to contamination. To prevent these failures, it is important to purify the new oil as it comes into the facility and then keep it clean throughout its life. By establishing an ISO code cleanliness goal and maintaining it, you will extend the life of the oil and the equipment.
