Portable filtration systems
Selecting the right filtration system involves many different factors including particle size of contaminants, operating conditions of the system, and lubricant viscosity to name a few. As you research filtration systems, it’s important to consider all your options and taking your time in making the decision as it is an important component in reducing contaminants in your lubricant.
Hand-Held Filtration System
Water contamination in lubricating oils causes premature oil degradation and accelerated wear of machine component. Prevention and control of water contamination is very often the most reliable means of preventing equipment failures. The use of portable filtration systems will help to reduce the amount of water contamination in lubricating oils.
