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.

It is that time of year to think about budget planning and investing in your lubrication program. It can be the single greatest factor in decreasing unplanned downtime. It also provides the greatest ROI. It doesn’t matter where you are in your lubrication program, as long as you continue to plan to improve it incrementally, you’ll see these benefits. Let’s look at how to achieve this and how it relates to budget planning.
If your plant has problems with maintaining the quality of lubricant – and based on our data, we bet it does – you might want to review this article on properly protecting your equipment.
Get a better understanding on monitoring particle counts, so you can take the appropriate corrective actions before machine failure occurs.
When selecting a portable filtration system for your application you need to make sure you are aware of its limitations and that it is best suited for your application. Get a better understanding of the key factors to consider during your procurement process of a portable filtration system.
A major chemical plant was changing oil in one of their blowers every 4 months. By utilizing oil analysis and eliminating contamination through filtration they were able to drastically extend their oil change intervals, saving maintenance time and costs.
A shutdown may be your best opportunity to catch up – and even get ahead. Explore the upgrades you may want to make and learn how to get started.
When Trico recently reviewed analysis findings from 3,000 gearbox oil samples, we found that as much as 75% of them were over the acceptable cleanliness standards.
