On the field of filtration systems we are expanding our product range with filters and Bypass Filter Systems Kleenoil, which are designed specifically to remove contaminants and water from motor and hydraulic oils. The company Kleenoil developed the filtration system as a solution to the problem of lack of oil in the Israeli- Egyptian war in the year 1973. Kleenoil filtration system provided an extended motor oil life in trucks during supply shortages of clean motor oil.
The KLEENOIL Bypass Filter System can prevent contaminants, which can damage bearings, rings and motor cylinders. Contamination can increase viscosity and accumulation of gum coatings on rings and valves. With the use of KLEENOIL Bypass Filter system you can keep the motor undamaged, as it can remove particles up to 1 micron, all water and acid, which gets condensed in the oil, as well as soot, which result from incomplete combustion of fuels.
KLEENOIL Hydraulic Block
The Kleenoil Hydraulic Block / Pressure reducing valve is mounted to the bottom of the Kleenoil Bypass Filtration System to convert the lower pressure bypass engine oil filter to a high pressure hydraulic fluid filter.
The main benefits of using the Kleenoil Hydraulic Kits along with Filter Units:
dramatic reduction in component wear (seals, piston rods, pumps, etc).
reduction in the incidence of sticking and worn valve components.
extended life of in-line filters.
end to the need to change hydraulic fluids.
The Kleenoil Bypass Filter Cartridge is made of densely wound pure coniferous long fiber wood pulp paper, held together in a material casing offered in specified sizes for use in the appropriate filtration units.
The filtration cartridge acts both by absorption and by adsorption in a continuous recycling process. Long fibers of the paper attract the water formed either through the combustion process or by condensation and absorb it like a sponge, at the same time rejecting the large oil molecules which are forced to pass between the tight windings of the cartridge. As the oil passes through the cartridge, minute carbon, wear metals, and silicon particles are extracted from the oil by adhering to the many surfaces of the filter a process known as adsorption. Thus the cartridge, by removing water inhibits the production of acids which both degrade the oil and cause excessive wear.
The Kleenoil Bypass Filter Cartridge will remove particles down to 3 micron and totally remove water. The principle for filtering particulate matter is 'liquid chromatography' which is in effect allowing a fluid to drain down a surface which will progressively arrest particles. This is achieved by having the tissue rolled on a core. Oil is passed up the core, collecting in a cavity to be forced back down between countless layers where particles are adsorbed within the matrix created by millions of cellulose fibers. The principle for filtering water is capillary absorption into the hollow vegetable fiber of the cellulose tissue. The molecular structure of the oil is too large to be absorbed 'this way and so the two.
Kleenoil seek to always obtain a long fiber tissue which has not been previously processed. Short fibers will absorb the water, but the pressure of flowing oil will cause the water to be released back into the oil. A long fiber will have the ends crushed by the pressure of flow and a small portion of water will be permanently retained in each fiber. Water retention is approximately 2.2 liters per kilo of tissue. Most papers are made with a large amount of repulped material, and as a general rule the fiber length is approximately halved each time it is repulped. The shortened fiber will not retain a significant amount of water, and tends to collapse into a repulped state when water is introduced.
To be able to retain a large amount of very small particles the winding of the cellulose roll must be extremely precise. Normal paper converters operate at high speed and the motion is not particularly smooth.
The cellulose tissue used to manufacture a Kleenoil Bypass Filter Cartridge must be from 'virgin coniferous' or other long fiber wood. It must have no element of 'broke' (repulped material). There must be no chemicals such as optical bleach present, which could alter the features of other chemicals added to the oil being cleaned; there must be a constant slow wind to give the optimum density and tension of the material.
