Innovative Oil Filtration

Sidefacts about Oil Filtration

The service life of lubricating oil is highly dependent on the contamination of the oil. Particles, sludge, water, gas and bacteria must be removed to optimise the service life of a lubricating oil. Standard oil filters manage to filter particles up to a size of 3 µm under good conditions. However, the smaller particles cause the fluid to break down and are the cause of particulate matter during fuel combustion. Smaller particles retain water, gas and bacteria. Current advanced filtration systems cannot remove particles with a cross-section of less than 1 μm.

We are now introducing an innovative oil filter that is capable of removing particles as small as 0.1 µm.

Innovative Technology for Oil Filtration

This exclusive technological process generates pseudo-ions through high potential fields in the liquid.

These pseudo-ions are created in two different chambers: one with a larger positive charge and the other with a larger negative charge. The two currents are directed into the mixing chamber where the particles agglomerate and form larger particles.

Negatively treated particles that do not find an agglomeration partner or are not sufficiently enlarged by exiting the filter combine with other contaminants throughout the system and are removed in subsequent steps.In this way, our technology is able to clean both the liquid and any surface with which the liquid comes into contact throughout the circuit.

Unique Selling Point

Other competing products use permanent charges of particles as the key to their technology, transferring electrons from one molecule to another to achieve a physical change. When electrons are gained or lost, the molecule becomes an ion that has a positive or negative electrical charge.

Our technology does not cause physical changes to additives, we use a limited and controlled electrostatic excitation technology where no electrons are moved between molecules. We call these “treated” molecules and their polarised charge “pseudo-ions” because they have similar properties to real ions, but their properties are temporary and short-lived. The intensity of the magnetic fields is controlled and automatically adapted to the needs of the liquid to be treated. The agglomeration also acts on particles that are smaller than one micrometre and would otherwise have no chance of being eliminated.
