5 Key Differences Between Oil Vac and Traditional Lube Exchange Systems

5 Key Differences Between Oil Vac and Traditional Lube Exchange Systems

As the market for alternative lube exchange solutions continues to grow, businesses need to understand the key differences between traditional pump-based systems and innovative technologies like Oil Vac’s pump-free design vacuum technology.

Here are five key differences to consider when looking at traditional lube exchange systems vs non-pump-based systems like Oil Vac:

Cross-contamination prevention: Traditional lube exchange systems using a pump technology can be prone to cross-contamination of oil or lubricants, leading to reduced machinery performance and lifespan. Oil Vac’s vacuum technology ensures a clean and reliable fluid exchange process, reducing the likelihood of cross-contamination and unexpected machinery failures or downtime.

Cost-effective maintenance solutions: Oil Vac’s pump-free design advantages mean that businesses can reduce their maintenance costs significantly. By using mobile lube systems and lube skids, businesses can streamline their maintenance processes, reducing the time and labour required to maintain their machinery over time.

Improved machinery performance and lifespan: The efficient fluid extraction and replacement provided by Oil Vac’s vacuum technology means that machinery can perform at its best, with an extended lifespan. Once the required air pressure is reached for dispensing new oils or draining used oils, the compressor of Oil Vac can be deactivated. This approach minimises equipment wear and tear while significantly reducing onsite noise levels.

Sustainable fluid exchange practices: Traditional lube exchange systems can be wasteful, with high volumes of oil and lubricants required. Oil Vac’s vacuum technology ensures a more sustainable fluid exchange process, with minimal waste and a reduced environmental impact. There is also reduced noise pollution and general emissions if the compressor is switched off once the desired pressure for fluid transfer is reached.

Industrial efficiency improvement: By using Oil Vac’s lube exchange technology, businesses can improve their industrial efficiency, reducing downtime, and increasing productivity for team members. With a safer, more pleasant working environment that allows for more efficient maintenance, the ability to recruit and retain staff becomes easier as well.
