The current practice when disposing of waste oil and oil filters is not an effective method of addressing the damage that motor oil is doing to the environment. The “green” environmentally friendly era is upon us, with many companies scrambling to become leading “environmental stewards.” Until now, however, there has been little concern when [...]
(From recent article published on USGS web site) Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) detections in ground water may not always indicate contamination from leaking gasoline storage tanks, which have a significant potential for large-scale contamination that exceeds regulatory standards. USGS scientists have discovered that used motor oil can contain a significant amount of MTBE. The scientists [...]
Natural Gas Engine Lubrication and Oil Analysis – A Primer in Predictive Maintenance and Condition Monitoring
Natural gas engines are unique. They operate in a variety of unusual locations, from the extremely cold climates of arctic Canada to the hot, humid regions of the southern United States and beyond. Natural gas engines are of various designs, including the Caterpillar vertical in-line and V type four-stroke, the two-cycle Cooper Bessemer V type [...]
"Abrasive engine wear can be substantially reduced with an increase in filter single pass efficiency. Compared to a 40 micron filter, engine wear was reduced by 50 percent with 30 micron filtration. Likewise, wear was reduced by 70 percent with 15 micron filtration." Society of Automotive Engineers, Paper number 881825 The Eco Flow filter medium [...]
Used Oil and Filters Used Oil if managed improperly can potentially contaminate drinking water. In fact, used oil from one oil change can contaminate 1 million gallons of fresh water - a years' supply for 50 people! Moreover, used oil may be considered hazardous waste depending on how it is disposed of or mixed with [...]
