Want your machines to perform better? Don’t change oil


SKF RecondOil Box makes it possible to use the same oil over and over again 

What if you could get cleaner oil in your application without having to change it? With RecondOil Box from SKF, you can use the same oil over and over again. In fact, you can get cleaner oil than ever before. Your machines can perform better, and at the same time, your oil can be transformed from a costly CO₂ footprint into a sustainable asset. Don't change oil. Change to circular use of oil.

Several trial customers are already using RecondOil Box. Curious about the result?

Circular use of oil offers several benefits

Sustainability improvement

Reduced CO₂ impact 
Reduced energy consumption thanks to less friction
Reduced consumables use

Total oil cost reduction

Reduced costs for purchasing oil
Reduced costs for shipment, storage and disposal of used oil
Reduced costs for oil-related maintenance and production stops

Performance improvement

Improved system performance 
Higher availability of the machine 
Higher productivity

Oil accounts for 5% of your maintenance budget. But affects 40% of maintenance costs

Today, most companies use their industrial oil until it degrades. This means that the oil eventually needs to be discarded and replaced with new oil. But since application owners want to get the most out of their oil, machines are often run with contaminated oil for long periods – a common cause of premature equipment failure. 

  • In fact, lubrication (and lubrication-related activities) can impact more than 40% of your total maintenance budget in things such as:
    Replacement of worn spare parts and components (bearings, chains, motors, pumps, hydraulic components etc.)
    Increased maintenance staff costs due to machine failures and more maintenance stops.
  • In other words, you have a lot to gain by constantly keeping the oil clean. Your machines run better, live longer and become more productive with less downtime. That means less repairs and component purchases.

By reusing the oil 
you solve your smallest problem

The lifetime of oil is influenced by contamination – if left unchecked in a system, the contaminants cause the oil to continually degrade, until it is no longer functional. 

Nanoparticles that constitute 80% of all particles in an oil cause severe harm – and they are a catalyst for oxidation in the oil (oxidation accelerates the oil’s ageing process). A conventional filter cannot remove nanoparticles, only microparticles.

Varnish causes machine wear and thermal stress as well as accelerates the oil’s degradation process. The primary source for varnish formation in an oil is oxidation by-products.

The presence of water in the oil can cause corrosion and reduce component life. Water also affects the oil’s viscosity and deteriorates its lubricating properties.

One system – three functions

The RecondOil Box is an enhanced depth filtration system that incorporates RecondOil’s patented Double Separation Technology (DST). It features a chemical/mechanical separation process which is not limited by filter pore size, and there is therefore no lower limit on the size of particles that can be removed from an oil.

Get rid of nanoparticles

We can get rid of the nanoparticles – and all other particles as well, for that matter. 

DST Filter

With its DST filter, the RecondOil Box also removes both soluble and insoluble varnish, thereby avoiding clogged systems. 

Water removal

In addition, the RecondOil Box is also efficient at water removal, and can remove dissolved, emulsified and free water out of an oil.

We make it easy not to change oil

In one compact system, easily installed to your application, you get continuously clean oil, resulting in reliable and stable processes. 
The RecondOil Box is also an investment with a short payback time, offered at a fixed monthly cost, where you can choose between different service packages. In addition to the Box itself, the packages can include everything from commissioning, new filters, technical support, and oil condition monitoring of your oil.
