Oil contamination control is key to maintaining the lubricating properties of your oil. Once water has entered the lubricant it can exist in the form of dissolved moisture, emulsification, or free water. Water damages your oil and subsequently the machine surfaces the oil is designed to protect.
Filtration systems and filter-carts will remove contaminants from your oil.
Desiccant breathers remove moisture and prevent moisture from entering the oil, the root cause of premature damage to oil and acceleration of wear in components.
The filtration and desiccant products offered by Mertens GmbH are of top quality, and protect equipment and oils from infiltration of contamination.
