Spotlight Service Series – Filtration

Equipment reliability starts with oil cleanliness. At Breaux Petroleum, we offer a large fleet of filtration and dehydration equipment, ranging in size and scope, to meet any oil purification need – safely and effectively. With our filtration services, we can improve the cleanliness of your oil by removing harmful contaminants that can threaten operational efficiency.

Defining maximum concentration levels and cleanliness is an important step in selecting a contamination removal strategy.

Water, one of the most destructive contaminants in oil, can be a critical cause of component failure. The presence of water in your oil can cause it to be milky. This texture will not lubricate your engine well, leading to friction, heat, abrasion, and destruction. Breaux Petroleum has the capabilities to accurately test for water in all lubricant oils in Parts Per Million (PPM). If present, we can effectively remove the contamination using vacuum dehydration.

Impurities can enter an oil system during assembly, the surrounding environment, and overhauls. Naturally, these oils also become impure as they corrode and age. New oil filtration and purification is a critical proactive maintenance step. Although it may be surprising, new oil does not meet OEM cleanliness specifications. To eliminate the risk of adding new, yet contaminated oil to your application, we can test and filter your new oil before it is put into service.

With our state-of-the-art equipment fleet and MLT-certified team of experts, we can help you maintain optimal performance by extending the life of your lubricants and equipment. Our units are mobile and designed to connect to systems while they are online, helping to eliminate the need for downtime. In addition, our fleet meets Class I Division II specifications to be utilized on site at your location.
