Mineral oils are mostly used for lubrication of various machines and mechanisms to reduce wear. Approximately 40 million tons of oil waste is generated in the world each year. About half is collected, with no moreRead More

Mineral oil recycling unit: principles of operation

Mineral oil is a very widely used material. The oil can be used to dissipate heat from equipment, lubricate mechanisms, insulation, arc extinguishing etc. In the process of operation the oil is subjected to various unfavorable factors (high temperature, oxygen, water, particulate matter), degrading its performance. If the oil parameters are below the regulated values,Read More

Successful Start up of CMM-12R unit for Oil Reclamation in Ecuador

August this year, our company visited the city of Quito (Ecuador), to start up a СММ-12R unit for Oil Reclamation The startup was preceded by a test run, which demonstrated good results with reduced dielectric loss tangent of 0,7% at 90° C (initial value at 11%) and increase of breakdown voltage to 80 kV. TheRead More

Transformer Oil Exploitation of Transformer Oil

Quality of transformer oil is an unstable property which is caused by the influence of a number of negative factors.  Oxidation may be considered the most significant factor. The impact of sunlight, high temperatures, as well as some other factors contributes to the development of transformer oil oxidation.  As a result, acids may form inRead More

Oil Reclaiming Oil Reclaiming in High Voltage Power Transformers

Mineral oil is one of the most prevalent wastes generated as a result of economic activities of industrial and transportation enterprises.  Every year the world industry generates about 40 million tons of waste oil, no more than 5% of which is processed. Let us consider the ratio of oil consumption and processing in some countries.Read More

Tools for Treatment in the Trunk – Portable Transformer Oil Recycling Units

For preservation and prevention of repairs in transformers, as well as prolonging its service life, different industries are increasingly using regeneration and cleaning plants for transformer oil. These systems allow complete cleaning of transformer oil and restoration of its initial properties and characteristics. Thus they extend period of use of transformer oil for an indefiniteRead More

Purification of Transformer Oil – is Expensive or Reasonable Investment?

For many years transformer oil has been a reliable insulation and a cooling medium inside transformers. One of the main indicators checked before oil is poured into a transformer is – its viscosity. With rise of temperature it decreases and increases when temperature goes down. Oil’s high viscosity index negatively affects its cooling system. DuringRead More

A New Shopping Cart for Businessman – Installations for Oil Reclamation

The main cause of breakdowns or contamination of engines is contamination of oil. Indicators of oil defects and pollution are calculated individually for each type of fuel. These include the number of mechanical impurities or water content, acid number, viscosity and so. The water content of 0.5% and 3% in fuel indicates of its emergencyRead More

“Shake it and See the Light Shines Through …”: This rule applies to wine business, and also to oil

Contaminated and used oil can be used not only for cheap heating but also it can almost completely return its original cost. Modern methods for extraction of moisture, gases, purification, separation of harmful impurities and filtration – they are, first and foremost, a way to make money on recycled raw materials, and  second, to mergeRead More

Oil Reclamation is Not Only in Comic Books – X-Force to clean transformer oil

Reclamation of oil – is a partial or full recovery of its quality characteristics. Facilities of oil upgrading occupy a considerable niche in international market of industrial machinery. At the moment when a company stops thinking about simply saving on salaries and purchase of low-quality raw material, it steps into a new area where itRead More

Protection of the Environment and Ways to Save on “Dirty” Oils

In recent years, it becomes quite fashionable to be involved in the environmental movement. There is nothing wrong about it, there are only pluses. What is more, the development of the environmental industry is aimed to achieve benefits for both sides: nature and man. This development could be treated differently. Many “cheap” entrepreneurs do notRead More

Clarification Technology for Waste oil reclamation

Rare people have not heard about the negative impact of waste oil reclamation on the environment. But the lack of legal acts, points of collection/processing, as well as inadequate use of oil recycling and oil reclamation tion methods often lead towaste oil reclamation being simply drained. What follows it – is air and water pollutionRead More
