APPLICATION: COLOUR AND ODOUR FREE DISTILLED LUBE OIL

General Process Description

Oil filtration by Activated media is a final polishing process in re-refining of used oil. The process consists of small adsorption column loaded with a bed of activated media. Generally, distilled oil feeds to the top of the media bed and purified oil is collected from the bottom of the column. Once, the breakthrough achieved means activated media has exhausted, Need to go for reactivation of media. In-situ reactivation consists of two major processes. Activated Media can be used more than 150 cycles up to 250 cycles, depends on inlet quality of oil.

  • Burning /Heating: Stop the oil flow and purge the hydrocarbon out from media as much as you can. Burn off all the adsorbate in activated media column. Heating must be done in controlled temperature. Exposure of activated media to elevated temperature will affect the active surface adversely.
  • Cooling: Media need to be cooled down to 80C before take it to polishing mode. Media can be cooled down by using dry air.

COLOUR CHANGES OVER OIL POLISHING PROCESS

IPI's Oil Polishing Unit removes colour and odour permanently. It gives zero colour and odour when unit started till 90 to 120 minutes of the operation. This colour and odour never change. Below is the permanent colour change during the operation. We can consider any average colour as per our choice by blending all.
