The traditional system of oil usage and replacement that’s been in place is unsustainable. Over the years, LH Travis has seen many innovations take place in the field of industrial lubrication, and these days, we are acutely aware of the impact of many industrial processes on the world around us. Fortunately, companies like SKF are taking the lead in creating solutions to some of these problems.
Creating a More Sustainable Future
The fact is, our natural resources are limited. We can’t produce new oil from petroleum products indefinitely. LH Travis recognizes the value of reducing, reusing, and recycling, so finding ways to make industrial lubricants last longer and be more sustainable is important.
SKF uses a process called “Double Separation Technology,” or “DST,” to create its RecondOil. This process involves separating the tiny particles that contaminate oil and lead to oxidation and degradation of the oil. What makes DST different from other types of filtration is that it is effective at removing even the tiniest of particulates – particles on the scale of nanometers.
This means that oil that would otherwise have been dumped, used as fuel oil, or recycled into low-grade asphalt can have a new lease on life. Oil treated with DST can be reused almost indefinitely, resulting in a significant decrease in demand for new oil.
Due to the removal of the nano-particles of contaminants in RecondOil, this oil is even cleaner than virgin oil. The result is a lubricant with an even higher level of performance than any new oil. The DST process is scalable for any operation, making it accessible across a broad range of industries.
Consider RecondOil for Your Equipment
If RecondOil is something that you are interested in incorporating into your industrial processes, contact LH Travis. We can provide more information on the details of how to get the most from your oil through the process of Double Separation Technology.
