KLEENTEK R-100TP US

The Best Electrostatic Oil conditioner by Kleentek®

Our many years of experience along with the best electrostatic cleaning technology has made KleentkUSA the #1 supplier oil conditioners in the USA and around the world to many industries including the power generation, metal processing, and liquid producing industries.Research indicates that as many as 85% of all lubrication system failures are due to oil contamination. There are three main types of oil contaminants, two of which are well-known: Water and solid particles. The other contaminant type is oil varnish, lesser known but equally dangerous to generation stations. It does not show up on standard oil tests even while it is silently building up on the sensitive components of your lubrication/cooling system.

Without proper tests and preventive measures, the varnish problem can go undetected until severe damage and or loss occurs.

Fluids go through a constant process of being pressurized and then returned to atmospheric pressure as it positions and controls the machine components. Each pressure cycle subjects the oil to mechanical and thermal stresses that break down the oil molecules, leading to the formation of oil varnish (a sticky, brown sludge) that coats the wetted surfaces of the oil system. The affected surfaces include injector valves, pump seals, heat exchanger surface area, and other critical components. The sticky nature of varnish causes it to capture other contaminants, creating sandpaper-like characteristics.

What is Kleentek and EOC technology and why is it needed?

Kleentek filters oils by the technique of Electrophoresis.  Electrophoresis is a technique used to separate molecules, such as oils, based on their size and charge. The molecules are run through a Kleentek systems where an electric current is applied. The molecules will then move through the Element (filter) based on their charge and size. Smaller, negatively charged molecules will move towards the positive end, while larger, positively charged molecules will move towards the negative end. This allows it to be separated and potentially analyzed for the different size molecules in a sample.  

The process removes contaminate in oil in the soluble and insoluble state, with out harming the actual oils.

See the attached images below for how it works.

Over time oils naturally breakdown due to a process called oxidation.

The oxidation process occurs and even accelerates through the introduction of water, heat, oxygen, static discharges, etc.

The by-product of oxidation called “varnish” causes problems within hydraulic systems.  Other Soluble and in-soluble such as dust and metals also must be removed.

Traditional Mechanical Filtration Only Removes Larger Particulate in the Micron Range 10-5m.

The Kleentek® product is an oil conditioning system which performs the following functions: Removes insoluble particulate from oil across the full particle size range down to 10-8m.

Basically, it reverses the effects of oxidation by-products.

Electrostatic Discharge

Significant studies have been conducted on the effects of static discharge in hydraulic systems. Static discharge is a prominent contributor to sludge and varnish formation in turbine systems.

Electrostatic charge generation occurs in fluid systems due to internal molecular friction and electric potential between the fluid and machine surfaces. Many factors contribute to the magnitude of the static charge within the lubricating oils; external grounding of machines has little impact on mitigating charge propagation.

Oil is a nonconductive fluid and is self-insulating. When charged particulate builds up in the working fluid, including reservoirs, the subsequent static discharging, similar to lightning strikes through the liquid, may cause localized thermal-oxidative oil degradation, known as sludge.
