New oil products in many cases are not clean oils. During manufacturing and distribution of oils, there are countless opportunities for contamination. Your distributor could be the biggest contributor by storing and transporting many various oils in the same vessels with constant exposure to the environment or by shipping in uncleaned barrels.
• New oil can be up to 10 times dirtier then proposed ISO cleanliness standards.
• Ensure your new oil is clean before filling your equipment reservoirs.
• Always sample and perform an oil analysis upon delivery.
• Always store, pump and dispense your oils in dedicated containers and tanks with appropriate filtration systems.
Never rely on newly delivered oil to be clean and pure enough to meet your designated cleanliness standards
