Europafilter Oil Cleaning System

Europafilter’s external oil cleaning system filters out harmful microparticles and moisture in used oil to eliminate wear, oxidation and erosion. The patented capillary filtration system is similar to a human kidney, gradually cleaning the lubricant every time it passes through the system – cleaning both the oil and the system.

This technology can result in multiple financial savings for clients from all major industries – including marine, offshore, energy, manufacturing, defense, process, mining and construction – by reducing oil consumption, lowering staff costs and preventing costly downtime.

Companies currently utilising this filtration system include Associated British Ports, Maersk, Statoil, Stena Drilling, Scania, Volvo and many more.

INCREASE LIFETIME

Machine parts can be used indefinitely and the risk of breakdown and production stops are drastically reduced

Reduce damage

The built-in online filter, which most machines are equipped with, provides protection against large particles that can cause direct damage to machine components

Avoid binding

Prevent the binding together of contamination and the acceleration of oxidation in the oil by micro-particles, which causes the oil to lose its lubricating qualities and leads to the formation of resins and deposits

Prevent breakdowns

Ideal for newer machines that are more sensitive to the cleanliness of the oil and regular maintenance, preventing unnecessary breakdowns during production

Retain qualities

Remove harmful particles and water from the oil to ensure that all the desired qualities are retained

Lower maintenance

Reduce the number of times the oil needs to be changed due by removing harmful particles and water from the oil. Without oxidation the oil retains all its desired qualities and, in theory, never needs to be changed

About Europafilter

Europafilter has been developed by Aegir Bjornsson, an Icelandic Naval captain, over 30 years ago to combat the challenge of constant oil changes.

A Simple Solution For An Invisible Problem

The Problem

The built-in full flow filters protect the machine components from large particles, but do not clean the oil system of water and small particles that damage the machine in the long term. Tests show that the majority of all machine breakdowns in oil systems are due to contamination of the oil.

Europafilter Dirty System

Oil tank

Resins, micro-particles and water are found throughout the system, and large quantities gather at the bottom and sidewalls of the tank.

Contamination

Resins, micro-particles and water are found throughout the system, and large quantities gather at the bottom and sidewalls of the tank.

Inline filter

Full flow filters are not able to remove water and oxidation particles.

Oil system

Hydraulics, gears, lubrication etc. Here is a production and circulation of a great amount of particles and contamination. They get caught up and are crushed down in the system so more and more contamination builds up and oxidation in the oil accelerates.

Air valve

Contamination and moisture from the air enter the oil system via air valves.

Return

Contamination from the oil system enters the oil tank.

System pump

The Solution

All the oil has been cleaned by Europafilter’s oil cleaning system resulting in cleaned lines, components and reducing oxidation. Europafilter’s offline filter absorbs water and particles from the oil. At the same time, the machine is cleaned as the clean oil carries away deposits from the system interior – while the machine is still operating.

Europafilter Clean System

Oil system

Hydraulics, gears, lubrication etc Clean oil lubricates all parts, and a fine oil film free of all contamination separates all moving components.

Inline filter

The full flow filter removes large particles that can cause immediate damage to moving machine parts. Now that the oil is clean the consumption of the full flow filter is heavily reduced.

System pump

Extremely clean

Oil is returned to the tank. The risk of the oil oxidising and forming resins and acids is heavily reduced.

Europafilter system

Dirty oil

Dirty oil passes through the Europafilter system.

Oil tank

Clean oil from the oil tank flows out into the oil system.

Contamination removed

Resins, micro-particles and water are almost completely removed from the tank.

Return

Clean oil from the oil system enters the oil tank.

Air valve

Contamination and moisture from the air enters the oil system via air valves. This can be reduced by an air/respiration filter.
