Wågene Purifiner Technology

It’s not the few drops of oil that are expensive, it’s the maintenance and repair of mechanical equipment.

Keeping the oil clean not only extends its working life, it also helps to avoid stops, low utilization of machinery and plant, wear over time and major maintenance costs.

There are two main types of pollution in oil, solid particles and chemical pollution, usually water, in free or combined form.

Chemical pollution, which is mainly water together with some decomposed particles from the oil, cutting fluids, anti-corrosives cleaning products. It is known from experience that water in either free or combined form is the biggest problem with chemical pollution. Approximately 30 -40{56788955060528cdcaa5b2c5a91b58be827b53ca0fef4e76188efe7d4afbbbb4} of all breakdowns are caused either directly or indirectly by water in the oil.

Solid particles, which originate from external pollution and enter the hydraulic oil via the breather air, lubricating oil from piston rods, topping up with dirty oil or during maintenance work. Solid particles can also form in the system itself through metal surface wear over long period of use. Oil usually contains a high volume of iron (Fe), a result of wear occurring on steel surfaces in the system. Other metal content due to wear are silicon (Si), copper (Cu), lead (Pb) and tin (Sn). The Pb, Sn, and Cu content originates from anti-wear additives that decompose in use and from mechanical wear of machine parts.

A combination of pollution
Almost without exception, hydraulic oil becomes polluted by a combination of particles and water and the rate at which the oil decomposes if the pollutants are not removed efficiently. Over 80{56788955060528cdcaa5b2c5a91b58be827b53ca0fef4e76188efe7d4afbbbb4} of all faults that occur in hydraulic plants are caused by impurities in the oil.

Purifiner oil filters are simple, but incredibly effective
In 1999, Eng. Åge S. Wågene chose to focus on the oil maintenance sector. In order to maintain the service level of oil, particles and emulsified water must be continuously removed. After a few years in the market the Purifiner oil filter has become a concept within oil maintenance.

Several hundred deliveries and installations have provided Wågene Purifiner Technology with broad experience from almost all types of hydraulic machinery and plants.

The design is simple but highly efficient, where two techniques are used in combination to provide pure oil.

The Purifiner by-pass oil filter is a World patent from the USA, which can point to sensational results in the degree of purity of oil when in continuous use.
