Liquid contamination is caused mostly by water and unburned fuel.
Under normal operating conditions water from condensation will build into the oil. Leaking seals and gaskets, incomplete crankcase ventilation, and warped or cracked engine blocks will also cause water to mix in the oil. Water causes oil to emulsify and to loose its chemical and physical properties.
Incomplete combustion leaves unburned fuel, which will mix into the oil and cause contamination. Although the process is slow, the continuous accumulation will cause oil to change its viscosity and lose its lubricating properties.
Filters alone are ineffective at eliminating liquid contaminants. Some cotton filters have water-soaking ability, but they have limited capacity, and do nothing about fuel contamination. As the filtering medium accumulates water, it also changes its characteristics.
In the Purifier, oil passes first through an ultra-fine synthetic filter, which is not affected by water. Then, the filtered oil is transferred to a Distillation Chamber were the liquid contaminants are evaporated and eliminated. Unlike cotton filters, the Purifier has unlimited capacity, and is effective on both water and fuel impurities. As long as the engine is running, it will continuously process the oil and return it clean to the sump.
Periodic testing of the oil ensures that its properties are within normal ranges and offers proof of proper lubrication for warranty purposes. They are the equivalent of periodic “blood tests” for a piece of equipment. When carefully monitored and analyzed they reveal important information about the condition of the asset. THE ANALYSIS CAN PROVIDE ALERTS ABOUT ABNORMAL WEAR AND OTHER PROBLEMS DEVELOPING INSIDE THE ENGINE AND SUGGEST THE APPROPRIATE CORRECTIVE MEASURES.
IT IS LIKE HAVING AN OIL CHANGE EVERY FEW HOURS… WITHOUT CHANGING THE OIL!
