DID YOU KNOW? The harmful effects of water, entrained gases, particulate, and varnish contamination in lubrication and hydraulic oils have been well documented. By removing all water contamination and entrained gases, the VDOPS from Oil Filtration Systems® helps maintain the oil’s original viscosity, ensuring its optimal performance and extending its life as a lubricant.
A VDOPS will:
1. Remove Water: through the process of vacuum distillation, our Vacuum Dehydration Oil Purification System (VDOPS) is capable of removing all water contamination from oil (free, emulsified, and dissolved), achieving very low overall water content (as low as 20 PPM).
2. Remove Gases: the same process of vacuum distillation effectively removes entrained air and gases from the oil (benzene, propane, methane, etc).
3. Remove Particulate: using high efficiency pleated microglass filter elements rated Beta(c)>1000 per ISO 16889, our VDOPS is capable of achieving very low particle counts in oil to meet or exceed an ISO 14/13/11.
4. Remove Varnish: when equipped with granular adsorbent media (offered as an optional accessory), our VDOPS is capable of removing soluble varnish from turbine and hydraulic oil, achieving an MPC value of 15 or lower
