- Buyer's Guide
Building upon fluid cleaning technology that has been tested and proven in the trucking industry, Oil Purification Systems (OPS) announced the new Eco-Pur System, the first supplemental filtration system that uses electronic controls to continuously optimize the cleaning process and remove both solid and liquid contaminants from lubricating oil. The Eco-Pur allows fleet owners and owner-operators to safely extend oil drain intervals as much as five times, earn a return on investment in as little as 10 months and minimize waste oil for a cleaner environment.
“The Eco-Pur is the result of rigorous design standards and more than 12 months of extensive laboratory and field testing,” says Bill Priest, vice president of engineering for OPS. “The OPS-1 System has been widely used over a number of years to reduce oil maintenance costs. We have been able to take that technology a step further and use even more innovative materials and design specifications to create a product that will continue to help companies meet their preventative maintenance goals now and in the future.”
The Eco-Pur utilizes the most advanced components and circuitry available for its electronic controls that continuously monitor temperature and flow to optimize the evaporation process based on an engine’s real-time operation. Additionally, the Eco-Pur is the only system of its kind to allow flexible product configurations based on a piece of equipment’s specific operating and contamination profile. Because the Eco-Pur has less hardware and a six-position integrated bracket, it is also easier to install and service than its predecessor.
OPS works with each customer to develop a customized plan based on business and operational requirements. This plan includes a review of current preventative maintenance practices and a company’s maintenance goals for the future, a comprehensive return on investment analysis and determining the best filter size for a company’s equipment. OPS also customizes its lube sampling and analysis program to further help companies meet maintenance objectives by doing the following:
· Safely extending oil drain intervals,
· Identifying opportunities for optimizing filtration performance,
· Minimizing downtime by identifying minor problems before they become major failures,
· Migrating to a truly condition-based oil maintenance program, and
· Providing regular reviews to ensure realization of benefits.
“Using our very successful OPS-1 system as a foundation, we have developed a product that helps companies significantly reduce oil maintenance costs,” says Greg Slawson, CEO for OPS. “With millions of miles and thousands of hours of proven performance, the Eco-Pur represents OPS’ commitment to helping our customers save time and money with fewer oil changes, while also protecting the environment.”
The Eco-Pur System will be available in September. OPS will also continue to service its flagship product, the OPS-1 system for existing customers.
