- System Maintenance
Under the leadership of Chairman and CEO Joe Vittoria, Puradyn has transitioned from a small local company into one globally positioned to provide its international client base with the finest filtration available.
We believe the strength of our product is two-fold:
1. It saves money
2. It conserves oil, one of our most powerful, non-renewable natural resources
There are several bypass filtration methods on the market with varying degrees of reliability and effectiveness. However, Puradyn designs and manufactures the only bypass oil filtration system that incorporates all of the following features which we believe provide us with a competitive advantage:
- Filtering solid contaminants to below one micron, including enhanced soot retention through the use of a patented and proprietary process for chemical grafting;
- Effectively removing harmful gaseous and liquid contaminants such as lighter fuel fractions, water and engine coolant; and
- Replenishing the base additives so as to maintain proper oil total base number (TBN) and viscosity
Any technology company is only as strong as its research & development and in that area, Puradyn is constantly striving to stay ahead of changing regulations and customer needs. In order to be compatible with new oil formulations, we developed an entirely new additive package in 2007. As well, this new additive package is backwards-compatible in that it is also compatible with the pre-2007 oils. Both lab and field tests of the newer additive package have demonstrated excellent results and a next-generation additive package has been formulated to meet more stringent regulations that were introduced in 2010.
As more engine manufacturers move to newer methods, including EGR, the oil is being subjected to more extreme conditions increasing the need for finer filtration of contaminants such as soot; reduction of liquid and gaseous contaminants, and constant replenishment of oil additives to combat oxidation and acid.
We believe that engine manufacturers can capitalize on our enhanced technology to remove soot from their oil to maintain their extended drain intervals by operating on constantly clean oil.
In January 2004, we achieved ISO 9001:2000 registration from the International Organization for Standardization. ISO 9001:2000 is a series of internationally accepted, multi-part quality management systems for industry-wide standardization applied to manufacturing and service organizations.
In December 2010, the Company completed a transition surveillance audit to achieve 9001:2008 registration, validating its Quality Management Standards process for ‘design, manufacture, sales and distribution of bypass oil filtration systems and replacement filters for various industries.’
