Oil prices could hit $100 a barrel for Brent crude in 2022 (Bank of America, June 2021) – Vacuum dehydration can save your oil as well as save £££’s.
Water in oil is a contaminant and therefore must be managed effectively. Ignoring water contamination can lead to internal system corrosion, valve locking, parts wear, oil oxidation, additive depletion and pump failures.
With the price of Brent crude steadily increasing over the past few months, having an option to dehydrate your oil that has been contaminated with water, can avoid the expense of replacing your oil, not to mention the added benefit of extending components life.
Vacuum dehydration units are ideal for removing all forms of water, including free, emulsified and dissolved water and gas from hydraulic and lubricating oils.
Hy-Pro vacuum dehydrators can work with many systems and on most oils. Our Hy-Pro vacuum dehydration units cover a range of flow rates and are sized for small or large systems.
If you are experiencing problems with water in your hydraulic or lube oils, we can either process your contaminated oil at our facilities or arrange for a hire unit at your premises.
Call M&R Hydraulics to find out how we can help.
