Oil regeneration is one of the most modern and environmentally friendly technologies available today. Recycling of resources enjoys wide popularity because of increased prices for industrial resources and recycling preserves those resourses while protecting the environment. The ever increasing efficiency of production and resource savings are achieved by re-using and restoring the original properties of the material that has been already used in the service of a desirable industrial process.
Oil regeneration is one of the newest and most desirable ways to protect the environment and improve profits for industries that rely upon large amounts of oils and fluids in providing their products and services. Oil consumption, at different stages of production, results in significant financial expenditures for transportation, storage and disposal of used oil. The factors listed above, if performed improperly, can damage the environment and result in “environmental” fines and sanctions.
In the not so distant past, the oil regeneration process was expensive and not very efficient. Today however, there have been several technological breakthroughs that have made the oil regeneration process not only time and labor efficient, but highly cost effective as well.
For this purpose, companies working in the high-tech market have developed equipment as the result of long lasting studies and now market oil purification and regeneration machines based on those studies.
Special oil regeneration equipment provides the most efficient and cost effective way of oil purification and regeneration without exposing the oil to the outside air and without the risks involved in removing and disposing of the oil. Additionally, this kind of equipment provides for the elimination of sediment and slime that may affect the regenerated oil.
The oil regeneration process allows companies to reduce the costs of performing preventive maintenance and can greatly reduce the need to perform corrective maintenance with regard to oil filled industrial equipment.
During the oil regeneration process, contaminants that accumulated in the oil during normal operating conditions are removed from the oil. Some of these contaminants include unwanted resins, sediments and other oxidation products.
Sedimentation, filtration, drying, centrifical force, or regeneration processes have typicaly been used to remove unwanted contaminants. These processes are performed by using such purifying agents as chemicals, filters, zeolites and sorbents.
The oil regeneration process normally includes several stages performed by a complex oil purification and regeneration machine. Water is removed at the first stage of the purification process. At the next stage, oil is filtered by passing the oil through different membranes or filtering mediums.
The use of chemicals in the regeneration process depends on the requirements of the oil regeneration and the performance characteristics of oil required by the industrial equipment. The processing of oil in sorbent or zeolite blocks (where remaining water and minor contaminants are removed) is considered to be the final stage of the oil regeneration process.
The input and output of oil is done through flexable pipes. The pipes are connected directly to the equipment’s oil tank, thereby ensuring an uninterrupted flow throughout the entire oil regeneration process.
In the oil purification and regeneration equipment market, a company can buy oil regeneration equipment of any design that will have different methods of purification. There is one company however, that offers a wide range of oil processing equipment to meet the needs of any company that needs to perform maintenance on oil filled equipment.
GlobeCore GmbH is an industry leader in the manufactuer and sale of oil processing equipment.
