Water in oil leaves a trail of destruction corroding machine parts, reducing bearing life, leading to

catastrophic breakdown.

Water depletes anti rust & anti oxidation additives in oil. It combines with gases such as ammonia and
hydrogen sulphide - perpetuating the corrosion process.

A number of methods are used for removing water from oil, like centrifuging and coalescers. The most
popular method to remove water is centrifuging.

Centrifuging however, cannot/does not efficiently remove water from oil, as explained in the
comparative chart.

PRINCIPLE

Oil is indirectly heated and fed into a vacuum chamber where it is dispersed into a thin film to vaporise
water and dissolved gases at low temperature.

The air and gases that evolve are condensed and removed from oil. Ultimate water removal through re
circulation is zero percent water content or 5O% below saturation level. Soluble gases and air are also
removed to 50% of saturation level. Indirectly heating oil at low temperature ensures there is no burn off,
no oxidation and no additive depletion.

Cracked low molecular weight oil, which is a by-product of the oil oxidation process, which accumulates in
the hydraulic or lubrication fluid, accumulates in Oil.

The LVDH is the only system, which can remove, cracked oil, thus restoring oil to its original properties.

The LVDH unit removes water/moisture to below 50% of the saturation point in oil at low temperature.

Vacuum pump and compressor seal oils Gear oils Dehydration before blending different oils.
Comparison With Centrifuge for water removal
Centrifuging Vacuum Dehydration
Must heat oil to 80 C for efficient removal of impurities
& water
Water is removed from oil below 55 C.
Heating oil depletes additives. No additive depletion.
Must be used off-line. All related machinery must be
stopped to drain oil into barrels / tanks for cleaning.
Can be used on-line, is therefore user-friendly.
Aerates oil, thus increasing net oxygen supply &
depleting anti-oxidation additive.
No aeration. No additive depletion.
Cannot remove emulsified water. Gear pumps used in
centrifuging increase emulsification. ;

In conjunction with Electrostatic-oil Cleaners,
removal efficiency is better than 0.01 micron.
High energy consumption. Low
Many high speed moving parts requiring frequent
maintenance
Only two pumps. Vacuum & discharge & slow
