Fuel


City of Houston: Diesel Fuel Storage Tank Filtration

Problem:

Ferrous contamination in City of Houston’s Municipal tank diesel fuel supply.

Results After OEI Filtration:

Just 3 days (3,000 gallons) after the cleaning of the system and installation of the Magnetic filter, a substantial amount of ferrous metal was extracted by the OEI Magnetic Filter. If left in the fluid these metal particles will prematurely wear the injector pump and injectors, decreasing the equipment’s performance and efficiency. With the continuance of ferrous particles being trapped by the OEI Magnetic Scrubber Filter after the new tank had been properly cleaned, it was determined that these contaminants must be coming from the fuel storage and delivery process.

ATM Rimini Municipal Bus Station Diesel Fuel Pump Filtration

Problem:

Sub-micron sized ferrous metal contamination in the diesel fuel was not being sufficiently filtered by the traditional paper spin-on filter on the diesel fuel dispensing pump.

Results After OEI Filtration: 

Ferrous metal contamination captured by the OEI scrubber’s magnetic filter rod was missed by traditional paper spin-on filters. These are the results after the diesel fuel was pumped through for one month.

ATM Rimini is so pleased with the results of OEI’s scrubber that they are revamping 4 more bus stations. In the order for the dispensing machines, they have added a MUST clause stating that they request magnetic filtration on all of their fuels.

Oil


Landstar: Oil and Lube Filtration on C15 Engines

Problem:

Improve uptime, reduce maintenance costs.

Results After OEI Filtration:
This C-15 Cat engine has run on OEI filtration for 985,574 miles without any engine issues. Oil only needs changing every 20,000 miles – double the norm – adding up to $11,475 in savings over 9 years.

Bunge: Locomotive Oil Change Extension

Problem: 

Prolong engine oil life and extend the oil change interval from 200hrs without compromising oil viscosity.

Results After OEI Filtration:
Oil in the locomotive did not need to be changed until more than 800 hours of operation had passed. This resulted in the savings of thousands of dollars in maintenance costs, including down time and 180 gallons of engine oil saved by the elimination of three oil changes, plus the related oil disposal fees.

1.7 million km on one filter

Problem: 

Traditional filters were allowing contaminants to cause premature wear on engine components.

Results After OEI Filtration:
This owner operator extended oil change intervals by 266% and drove his rig 40% longer than the average engine life.

TransMasivo: Oil Filtration on Public Buses

Problem:

Most traditional filtration is not capable of achieving international standards for fuel which is 2500 particles/ml @ 4 microns. To achieve this with traditional filtration would cause flow restriction, therefore dirty fuel is being supplied to customers causing premature wear of fuel system components, inhibiting the burn of the fuel and increasing emissions.

Results After OEI Filtration:

Photo shows the accumulation of ferrous and non ferrous contamination down to sub-micron levels that would have traditionally channeled its way through conventional filters. By removing this contamination from both gasoline and diesel fuel systems the wear of the system components is reduced and quality of the burn is improved reducing emissions. Transmasivo was also able to extend their oil change intervals from every 10,000km to every 12,000km decreasing maintenance costs.
