Your equipment is an investment, costly to repair and often more costly to have standing idle due to un-scheduled stand-downs.

The Lubemaster Oil Cleaning Unit can extend the working life of industrial lubrication oil many fold, often indefinitely, thus extending the life of machinery through reduced wear and improved operating conditions. Other systems use pore filters which greatly reduce flow rates and make it impractical to clean heavy grade oils to fine cleanliness levels whilst maintaining flow rates at high viscosities.

Lubemaster Oil Filtration systems can decrease the amount of oil disposed by industry and make it more economical to use expensive synthetic oils thus saving money, reducing pressures on the environment and increasing machine uptime. Clean Oil Services Pty Ltd, based in Townsville offers a comprehensive oil lubrication management service to its customers. The key to our success is our microscopic wear debris program which literally looks inside the machine, allowing us to identify wear causes, identify and locate the source of contamination and recommend actions to increase oil and machine life.

Our extensive laboratory work led to the development of the Lubemaster Oil Cleaning systems. For years, we have been changing oil and disposing of it simply because it has become laden with contamination. More often than not the life of the oil is far from spent; if the contaminants are removed oil life can be extended. "Oil is no different to any other part of machinery, service it and it will last longer." This is the principal around which the Lubemaster Oil Filtration system was designed. In other words, keep out the particles and water contamination and the additives will not degrade, thus oil life can be extended indefinitely. Studies show that this type of machinery on the market has the potential to decrease Australia's annual $2 billion industrial lubrication expenditure by 50 percent and is now becoming highly sought after by the international market.

Oil analysis is an integral part of the unit's success. Clean Oil Services conducts oil analysis on used oil from within an operating machine, providing useful information about the condition of the machine and the lubricant and proving the benefits of the Lubemaster system. The lubrication management and condition monitoring systems work to improve housekeeping and reduce operating costs with increased machine availability by cleaning the oil whilst it remains online. Keeping lubricant and equipment in peak operating condition means less oil will be contaminated by water or particles and discarded.

With no elements to replace and no need to shut down fixed plant to clean the oil, Lubemaster, is the cheapest and most efficient form of oil cleaner available on the market today - there are virtually no ongoing operating costs apart from electricity, to run the machine - All components are serviceable and only basic operator skill levels are required. The Lubemaster vacuum dehydration system requires only workshop air to operate and will remove emulsified and free water as most machines operates.

Clean Oil Services Pty Ltd and Lubemaster are at the forefront of modern lubrication technology with some of the most technically advanced practices available for oil analysis and preventive maintenance programs.
