Oil condition surveys, purification and filtration

Some 80% of all machinery failure is related to some fault relating to the lubrication oil. Of this, about one third of failures are due the contamination. (The balance is due to aged lubricants, unsuitable lubricants and insufficient lubricants.) So maintaining the purity of your oils is essential.

Hydraulic Surveys

Our engineers are available to carry out a survey of all your hydraulic systems and to report on the level of contaminants / recommend remedial action.

Wågene Oil Purifiner Technology

We are the UK agents of the Norwegian company, Wågene Purifiner Technology. The purifiner is a portable patented oil purifier which removes particles down to 1 micron and water down to 100 ppm (or 0.01%). It can extend the lifetime of any amount of lubricating oil by 10 to 15 times giving a quick return on investment. It is a modular system which can clean up to 9,000 litres of oil with a daily throughput of up to 1,800 litres. The oil is cleaned to NAS 4 or ISO 4406 levels of 15/13/10. The unit is light and portable and has low running costs. It is suitable for applications such as the recovery and reuse of sterntube oil, maintaining the cleanliness of the oil in thrusters and purifying a ship’s hydraulic systems. To date, over 3,000 units have been delivered worldwide to some of the leading names in the maritime industry.

MANN+HUMMEL centrifugal oil filtration

Our MANN+HUMMEL FM400 centrifuge, part of a high-performance range of centrifuges
We are the approved installers of the MANN+HUMMEL centrifugal oil filtration system. These centrifuges extend the life of your engine’s lubrication oil by removing high-density soot and other sub-micron particles by creating centrifugal forces 2,000 times greater than gravity. The centrifuge has been proven to extend the life of an engine’s lube oil by nearly double. So, you not only have reduced wear and filter element consumption as a result of the cleaner oil, you also ensure immediate savings on lube oil costs. These centrifuges have proved to be very popular. Today, they are fitted as standard on many modern engines. They are also offered as an approved option on many others, but they can be fitted to any engine even older engines or those where they have not been approved by the engine builder. The centrifuge is located within the lube oil pressurised system. Up to 10% of the engine’s lube oil is passed through the centrifuge, which is operating all the time, cleaning the oil and then recycling the clean oil to the sump. The centrifuge uses the pressure in the system to rotate the bowl without the need for a separate pump with the result that there are very few replacement parts. Consequently, running costs are very low. Suitable applications range from truck / bus engines to locomotive engines, power generation and marine engines.


As distributors for Parker, Vokes and MANN, we can offer complete new filtration systems or replacement elements for most existing systems. The range exceeds 50,000 different types of replacement elements covering air filters, fuel filters, lubrication oil filters and hydraulic oil filters suitable for Argo, Baldwin, Boll & Kirch, Donaldson, Hydac, Internormen, Mahle, MP Filtri, Pall, Racor, Rexroth Bosch and many other brands.
