A more efficient use of engine oil can be achieved in a number of ways, but at Puradyn we concentrate on only one: micro fine oil filtration achieved through the use of bypass filtration technology.
A good portion of the world depends upon oil to help operate engines in almost every aspect of day to day living, from basic needs of transportation and food production to the infrastructure, economic stability and defense of their particular country.
The environmental benefits of energy, oil, and natural resources conservation is now an important part of the national energy and environment conversation. It’s only logical that such a powerful and essential resource as oil might have an equally powerful effect upon its very source. Traditional and controversial exploration and extraction to produce new oil may take a toll on the environment. Waste oil, recycled to be used as heating oil, heavy lubricant and asphalt, contains its own set of issues, in that these products still contain a substantial amount of harmful contaminants such as carbon, potassium and lead to name a few, as well as levels of antifreeze and gas. Further, just one gallon of used oil, which contains impurities and toxins, can contaminate 1 million gallons of potable water if disposed of improperly.
So it’s easy to see that environmental responsibility is a concern to all of us.
Working in much the same way as a kidney dialysis machine, the puraDYN System diverts engine oil at a slow rate of 6-8 gallons (or 22-40 liters) per hour (slightly higher for hydraulic applications), cleaning lube oil of its impurities and feeding it back to the engine or hydraulic tank.
Bypass oil filtration technology can help any company provide the following environmental benefits:
- By filtering solid contaminant down to below one micron and removing liquid and gaseous contaminants, plus keeping base additives and viscosity intact, oil can be used indefinitely (simple oil analysis can confirm the oil is good for continued use).
- If oil is good for continued use, engine and hydraulic oil remain viable for longer periods and oil drains safely extended, thereby reducing the quantity and need for ‘new’ oil by as much as 90%.
- When the amount of ‘new’ oil can be reduced by up to 90%, there is a subsequent reduction of waste oil.
- Not only does bypass filtration technology extend the life of the oil, it extends the life of the engine, in turn reducing additional pollution contributors of the engine components.
Our customers have found bypass oil filtration technology affords the same benefits claims made by alternative energy source providers – reduce significant oil consumption and minimize a company’s carbon footprint. We believe the advantages our Puradyn System offers (versus alternative energy source providers) to existing and potential customers include not having to invest in as much new equipment; extended use of existing fleet equipment; and offering a relatively low-cost aftermarket Puradyn product, with installation, training and support.
Reducing your company’s environmental footprint will ultimately help reduce operating costs and equipment downtime, a welcome triple benefit.
Don’t forget! puraDYN systems work just as well on hydraulic systems which often cost more to maintain than engines. Most companies already have the price of the puraDYN paid for in net savings achieved, requiring no additional capital investment.
