The Filtervac Filter Carts are used to clean insulating oils found in switch gear/circuit breakers applications and
oil circuit re-closer, voltage regulators and tap changer applications where they are ideal for removing carbon
and water contamination from insulating oils.
LOOK AFTER YOUR OIL & YOUR OIL WILL LOOK AFTER YOUR MACHINERY
Most Oil Filtration Equipment (O.E.M.) that is originally installed to protect industrial
equipment cannot adequately remove contamination (both particulate & water) to maximize
the long life potential of original equipment.
Many Oil Suppliers are not able to provide brand new oil that meets cleanliness levels
specified by the Original Equipment Manufacturers (O.E.M.)
Most Oil Reservoirs require a top-up of new oil and this is usually achieved by
transferring oil from drums to the reservoir.
Filtervac’s designs and manufacturers unique Filter Vessels and Duplex Filtration System that is offered with the option of utilizing two(2) Three-Way or one(1) Six-Way HYCOA Non-Lubricated Plug Valves to provide the highest degree of simplicity and fluid control in a Single or Duplex Filtration application.
Water and particle contamination is one of the primary reasons for reduction in oil life and for machinery components degradation.
Filtervac offers several oil dehydration and purification system technologies; each satisfy specific application requirements depending
on the type of oil and equipment used.
Filtervac designs and manufactures low watt density Heater Skid and Filtration Skid Systems for filtering, elevating and accurately maintaining temperatures of various kinds of oils and fuels. The Filtervac Oil Heater System design utilizes CE/CSA/UL listed heating elements with a watt density rating of 12 watts per square inch.
Studies by Electric Power Research Institute have concluded that over half of the forced outage hours related to bearings, journals and lube oil systems were due to contaminated oil. This contamination comes in the form of free, emulsified and dissolved water and also particulate matter.
Since it is often difficult if not impossible to prevent water from entering the lubrication system, it is extremely important to remove the oil before it causes permanent damage. Filtervac offers two (2) types of oil purifiers that remove both water and particles to provide a Total Oil Purification System.
