3 types of oil contamination, 1 solution: Triple R Oil Cleaner.
Solid particles cause great damage to, for example, pumps, valves, gearwheels, seals and cylinders. The greatest damage is caused by particles smaller than 5µ. These particles do not only cause great damage to components, but also drastically reduce the life of the oil. These particles act like a catalyst and let the oil oxidise (many times) faster. This oxidation must be prevented, so that the oil can retain its chemical qualities and therefore offer a sound lubrication. Triple R removes solid particles smaller than 5µ, so that we prevent damage to components and the life of the oil is extended considerably!
Varnish (oxidation products)
Varnish, resins, or sludge, often originate from 'soft' contamination consisting of, for example, dirt, dust and wear particles. Resin forms a kind of deposit in the form of a layer on the wall and on components. Finally, this form of contamination develops into the well-known brown deposit on, for example, servo valves and other valves, so that the latter begin to 'stick' and finally have to be replaced. Current filters also often get clogged, so that they can hardly function anymore. Resins develop in almost every machine and are often ignored. This is unjustified, because resins are one of the largest oil polluters. With Triple R we do not only remove resin particles, but also resin which is dissolved.
Moisture & water
Water in oil accelerates oxidation. In combination with contamination such as solid particles, copper and metal, the oxidation will even accelerate much faster The longer the oil is subjected to oxidation, the higher the acid value (T.A.N.) of the oil. When the acid value is too high, the only thing you can do is replace the oil. Water does not only accelerate the oxidation of the oil, it also causes failures, bacterial growth and corrosion. Because of the unique composition of our Triple R filter elements they are able to retain water.
