The Lubemaster Portable Oil Cleaning Centrifuge, is a unique Australian innovation that is environmentally friendly and guaranteed to cut your lubrication costs.Tweet
By utilising the oil driven centrifuge together with vacuum dehydration, we have found a low cost method to clean oil to unprecedented levels.
The Lubemaster concept came about due to the findings in our oil analysis laboratory. For years we have been changing oil simply because it was loaded with contamination. We then dispose of this oil, often throwing away a perfectly good product which is simply loaded with contamination which could easily have been removed.
So the question arose that if the viscosity of the oil is within limits and holding, TBN/TAN is within limits and the contamination levels are contained below limits, why do we want to throw that oil away?
All that remains is to check for diesel dilution and water ingression in engines which we can very easily check along with all of the above properties by a comprehensive oil analysis program.
THE QUESTION REMAINS NOW – WHY DO YOU WANT TO CHANGE OIL?
On engines, we bolt the centrifuge to the engine which is driven by the engine’s oil pressure and operates whilst ever the engine is running.
Lubemaster portable oil cleaning units with their own pumps which utilise an oil driven centrifuge, coupled with vacuum dehydration to clean used oil to a higher level than is possible with other fluid filtration systems, usually without the cost of replacement elements.
The Lubemaster is a portable stand alone unit kidney loop or dialysis style oil filtration system which offers the following benefits –
• Removes particles to sub micron size.
The centrifuge myth explained.
Centrifuge filtration works on density, not pore size. Consequently a higher level of cleanliness can be maintained than with other oil filtration systems. The more dense contamination particles are removed and contained in the rotor without effecting additive levels.... Additives are not effected unless they separate on standing.
WARNING – Oils containing Molybdenum disulphide cannot be cleaned with the Lubemaster machines as the Molybdenum metal is more dense, hence heavier than is oil. Molybdenum settles on standing hence will be removed from the oil if centrifugal filtration is used.
The centrifuge is capable of rotor speeds approaching 7000rpm. Any contaminates with a higher density than oil will be slung to the outside perimeter of the rotor where they are trapped for removal when the rotor is cleaned.
Reduce wear, extend oil and machine life by maintaining cleaner operating conditions with lower operating costs with no replacement elements.
