High Purity Northwest has partnered with Oilkleen to offer the most effective varnish removal systems available.
We offer these systems as standalone units or incorporated into our family of Thermo-vac Oil Purification Systems so that one system can completely remove free, emulsified and dissolved water, dissolved gases, particulates and sub-micronic varnish.
The Thermo-Vac with Electrostatic Oilkleen technology is the complete oil purification solution.
Varnish Removal System
Lubricant varnish and particle contamination is a problem that most rotating equipment applications will experience at some point during normal operational life of production. These varnish and particle contamination issues can cause equipment component failures and serious downtime losses in productivity.
The Patented OILKLEEN Electrostatic Oil Cleaner has been solving these varnish and particle contamination issues all over the world since 2005 when the company was formed. The patented OILKLEEN technology is the world leader in varnish build up stripping and removal. This means that not only can the patented OILKLEEN electrostatic filtration system remove varnish from the oil (as measured in ASTM D7843-12 MPC patch test), but it can remove years of varnish build up on the internal metal surfaces of the rotating equipment or hydraulic system it is installed on.
Oil contamination will accelerate wear, cause governors and servo valves to operate erratically and even stick or plug. Lube oil varnish and particle contamination will lead to unplanned outages and expensive system failures.
How the OILKLEEN System Works
The patented OILKLEEN Varnish Removal Systems use principals of physics that create 18 electrostatic fields where the oil has a traversing oil flow pattern through all 18 fields. Inside each electrostatic field is a proprietary depth media that the charged particles will bond to and be removed from the oil. The traversing oil flow will create over 9x longer dwell time for the contaminated oil to remain in the electrostatic field, thus making the patented OILKLEEN technology the most efficient and the highest flow rates of any electrostatic oil cleaner in the world. This process can remove all sub-micron particles and ultra-fines associated with varnish and oxidation by-products and will not remove soluble additives from oil. The OILKLEEN electrostatic oil cleaner will quickly clean up your oil and then prevent future varnish and particle contamination issues from coming back.
OILKLEEN Has Kept Customers “Varnish-Free” for Over 10 Years
The patented OILKLEEN Varnish Removal Systems have been installed at various customer locations now for over 10 years and these customers have had NO VARNISH RELATED issues since installing the OILKLEEN electrostatic oil cleaner. There are all types of non-patented products making claims about how to clean oil and remove varnish from systems. OILKLEEN will back up the patented electrostatic oil cleaner technology with real results.
