The Before-and-After OilPure Cleaning
- OIlPure has refortified Oil Additive in the recycled hydraulic oil after AST-50 into Shell Tellus 68. Purchasing department has purchased the oil at the lowest price, effecting the low level of oil additives in the new oil.
- SPZC-101H Oil Additive results in Four Ball Wear Test showing the reduction of Scar from 0.75 mm to 0.35 mm. This is an excellent 40% improvement in wear protection.
- Four Ball Weld value improves from 100 kgf to 120 kgf which means the oil can carry 20% more load and heat at 120 kgf before metal surface start to weld to one another.
- Copper Corrosion Test shows the recycled oil at 1A Rating which is considered to be top rating.
- This is an improvement in Asset Management that improves machine Productivity, resulting in additional profit in ROA (Return on Asset) that was hidden and can be recalled from quality lubricating process in the machine.
What is Four Ball Wear Test (ASTM-D-4172) ?
Four-Ball Wear determines the relative wear-preventive properties of lubricating fluids and greases in sliding and rolling applications. It is the only test machine proven through cooperative inter-laboratory testing to meet requirements of ASTM: D-2266 and D-4172.
Four Steel Ball 4 Sliding and Rolling on metal specimen
Scar depth is measured in mm (millimeters)
Four Ball Wear Test determines the wear protection properties of a lubricant by measuring the wear scars produced by four metal balls in sliding contact under the test parameters. The smaller the average wear scar, the better the wear protection provided by the lubricant.
The better the lubricant is at preventing wear, the smaller the wear scar will be on the three stationary balls. At the conclusion of the test, the three wear scars are measured and the average is reported. The coefficient of friction is also measured throughout the 60 minute test with the average being reported at the end of the test.
What is Four Ball Weld Test (ASTM: D-2596, D-2783) ?
ASTM: D-2596. D-2783 Four Ball weld point test Weld Point (WELD/PT), kg – The lowest applied load in kilograms at which the rotating ball welds to the three stationery balls indicating the extreme-pressure level to the lubricants-force (or newtons) has been exceeded. Deemed to be complete when the ball bearings have welded together under the heat generated by friction.
All Four Ball Steels are welded into one piece.

Koller Craft – Plastic Injection Molder in Fenton, Missouri
Koller Craft has 9 units of Husky injection molders sizing from 500-2,200 tons. Hydraulic oil becomes contaminated every 6 months. If no oil changes, there will be substantial damages in hydraulic system components. Koller Craft installed 9 dedicated SS-50 oil purifiers on each injection molder to keep the oil continuously clean. All hydraulic damages such as Hydraulic Pump และ Servo & Proportional Valve dramatically reduced due to the quality clean hydraulic oil. This dedicated SS-50 Oil purifier provides a good 2 weeks of Total Oil Contamination Turnover or equivalent to changing new oil every 2 weeks as shown in the clean oil photo.

Veolia Environmental Services provides ROV (Remote Operating Vessel) operation to repair leaked valve damages undersea for BP Oil Spill in Gulf of Mexico from Galveston, Texas
In 2010 OilPure is part of the repair team to repair crude oil leaking from broken valve of BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico. This project is about 2 years before the valve is completely fixed.
ROV (Remote Operating Vessel) is a robot equipment working undersea, needs to bring to surface vessel for maintenance and hydraulic oil change every 2-3 days. There is brine, concentrated salt water penetrates into hydraulic system during undersea operation. Brine causes Internal Corrosion in ROV components. Dirty oil is drained and recycled by AST-50 in the surface vessel during this 2 years of operation. All hydraulic oil is recycle during this time. No waste disposal from the vessel.
AST-50 locates inside Veolia Support Vessel floating on top where the ROV is working on repairing the broken valve undersea in Gulf of Mexico. Hydraulic oil was recycled through AST-50 from ROV that was sent 10,000 feet under the ocean to repair leaked valve.
ROV (Remote Operating Vessel) needs to bring up from surface vessel every 3 days for maintenance oil change. Brine and sea water causes internal corrosion in ROV components.
The Before-and-After Purified Oil after AST-50 shows the removal of brine and sea water from oil. Typical one micron filter is not able to remove brine salt from oil.
Veolia supporting vessel
ROV was controlled remotely from Vessel control room while ROV is undersea 10,000 feet.

OilPure helps reformulate the Stamping Oil from Chlorine Base to Phosphorus Base to avaoid the Chlorine hazardous material. The punching machine provides stamping and shearing process to form and sharp the knife. Stamping oil is spraying on metal surface prior to stamping to lubricate the expensive Die and helps sharping the knife as well.
This special formulated stamping oil contains Phosphite Inorganic from Phosphorus material that was a solid substance and ground into soluble in oil. This Phosphorus can carry tremendous load and has no side effect on stain on part surface as well as corrosion. However, Phosphorus is a very fine solid substance which is used to sharp the special alloy steel. This will make alloy steel remain sharp longer than normal sharping process.
This stamping oil is very expensive costing 5 times more than Chlorine base lubricant. The stamping oil consumption is about 800 gallons per day. OilPure has designed a Centralized Closed Loop System that has No Moving Parts which is an unmanned operation, fully automatic system as shown on below flow diagram.
Cutting Oil Recycling System from 600 CNC Machines at Seward Products in Seward, Illinois
Seward Products is a screw machine shop subcontractor using CNC Screw machine that generaetes 200 gallons per day capacity of cutting oil. Oil is spilled from Chip Spinner and need to be clean before reuse. The AST-50C cutting oil recycling machine has to run 24/7 non stop since 2515.
AST-50C recycles cutting oil 200-300 gallons per day.
Integrated Machine AST-50C = TC-8 + FC-1 + VJ-150 + MB-50

Dirty Oil is spilled from Chip Spinner for recovery.
1.0% of P-404 Supplemental Oil Additive is refortified after recycled from AST-50C in order to enhance machining capability in the oil. This additive contains Phosphorus EP Additive และ Inactive Sulfur that improves 37% faster machining as compare to the new oil. This can be explained in the result in Four Ball Wear Test (ASTM: D-4172) showing Reduction from 0.54 mm – 0.34 mm Scar
The Built-in Precision Machining Quality Control can be incorporated from cutting oil. This explains in the Smooth Torque Curve during machining. The Red Graph Torque show very smooth curve with no Spike. due to the cutting performance quality. The recycled oil with refortified additive shows No Torque Spike Curve (Red) which is better than the new oil.

OilPure provides Oil Flushing or Oil Dialysis service for Air Compressors at RR Donnelley printing shop in Liberty, Missouri
OilPure has clean up oil dialysis for Air Compressors that use Synthetic Compressor Oil to extend the oil for 5 more years as well as improves air compressor efficiency by 25%
Air Compressor Oil Dialysis with MB-50
MB-50 performs the Oil Dialysis on all 9 Air compressors which is not only, clean the oil, but also clean the inside of the compressors that oil replacement can not do the total clean up inside. After compressor oil is clean, Air Compressor only works continuously for 7 compressors which can deliver enough air to the whole plants. When oil was dirty, air compressor have to run all 9 units full time. This shows cost saving of 25% of energy for the plant.
