Waste Oil Purification Technologies

The problem of disposing of industrial waste is complex. Used mineral oil is formed as a result of operating of road transport as well as work of various industrial enterprises.

Thus the problem of recycling of used mineral oils needs special attention. According to the existing regulation: engine, compressor, vacuum, industrial, gas turbine, instrument, transformer and turbine waste oil can be used for purification and recovery.

To date, in addition to traditional thermophysical purification method, oil refineries also use physical, physical-chemical and chemical methods that are applied in a specific sequence.

Physical methods are used to clean oils from particulate matter, water microdroplets and a certain amount of tarry and coke-like substances.  Centrifugation is the most common physical purification method.  Vacuum evaporation or distillation can be used to remove low-boiling impurities from oil.

Physical-chemical purification includes coagulation, adsorption and selective dissolution.

Chemical cleaning methods are: air oxidation, hydrogenation, acidic and alkaline treatment.

Full restoration of quality characteristics of contaminated oils is achieved only using a combination of these methods.  Their combination in a particular sequence allows cleaning and regeneration of waste oils of different brands with varying degrees of performance reduction.

GlobeCore mobile oil stations are used by the enterprises dealing with large volumes of waste oil.  This equipment cleans and regenerates waste oil to the high purity indexes on the site of consumption.

GlobeCore technologies are environmentally friendly: the process of purification is not accompanied by harmful emissions.
