EXTEND YOUR OIL
DRAIN INTERVALS WITH FILMAX
Combustion Engines, mobile and stationary, require extensive maintenance to change lubricating oil on a routine basis. Engines provide the most extreme conditions for lubricating oil, water, particulate contamination, extreme heat, and the introduction of air. As a result, the oil oxidizes much quicker than in fluid power systems and requires frequent oil replacement. Maintaining heavy mobile equipment in the mining industry can consume up to 70% of their total maintenance budget. Large stationary turbo charged engines, used in the natural gas pipeline industry, consume up to 40% of their maintenance budget maintaining their equipment. Due to the formation of soot in diesel engines, typical oil drains are performed every 250 to 300 hours. The result of oxidation and nitration in natural gas engines typical oil drains are performed every 1000 to 1200 hours.
Filmax is installed on mobile and stationary engines as side stream filtration technology. Filmax takes a small portion of the engine lubricating oil super cleaning the fluid continuously and returning it back to the crankcase. Filmax removes acid, oxidation, and nitration by-products and extends oil and oil additive package life exponentially.
Filmax has been proven to extend oil drain intervals in diesel engines from 250 hours to over 1200 hours. Filmax is now installed on CAT 3500 and CAT 3600 engines and oil drains have been extended to over 3000 hours. A process utilizing Filmax on CAT 3500’s with recriprocating compressors are currently extending oil drains to 8000 hours. Side Stream Filtration has also shown to extend engine overhaul intervals to well over 60000 hours.
