OIL RECONDITIONING

At the turn of the 20th and 19th centuries, people faced a choice: to pay attention to the ecology or to get the prospect of an early disappearance. Tons of waste of various origins have called into question the existence of mankind.

For example, waste oil in the amount of one liter can make unsuitable for later use up to one million liters of water. It is clear that in such an environment no animals or plants can live.

In the European Union, the picture of the market for used oils is as follows. Illegal discharges include 25% of used oils, and 75% are collected from the centralized collection. For the collected raw materials, oil regeneration is used in 25% of cases, and 49% is burned as fuel. As you can see, the situation is not ideal, but it is worthwhile to study the positive experience.

What is the recovery of used oil?

Oil recovery is the removal of aging products, acid constituents, additive degradation products, and the like. It is worth to distinguish between Oil Reconditioning and recovery. In the first case, it usually refers to the removal of solid particles, water and gases. With a small degree of contamination, cleaning can be realized by sedimentation, centrifugation, filtration and thermovacuum treatment.

The beginning of aging processes requires the use of regenerative technologies. Good results in the context of recovering the properties of used oils show adsorbents. These are special substances that can detain the products of oil contamination. Passing through the adsorbent, oil seems to be dumping all "superfluous" and restores the operating properties to the previous level. The product obtained can either be reused for its intended purpose, or it becomes a raw material for the production of new commercial oils - transformer, turbine, motor, industrial.
