Many people believe that the adverse influence of human activities on the biosphere has been significantly growing in recent years. Whether this is true and/or accurate remains a topic of heated debate. Toxic waste however, remains as one of the most dangerous products of human industry that can impact the air we breathe and the water we drink.
The situation is further complicated by the large amounts of lubrication materials used throughout the world. The toxicity of used oil products can have many detrimental effects on the human body and the biosphere.
Modern equipment producers can consume tens of thousand tons of lubrication oils, and the amounts are growing every year. The environment has become polluted due to the use of industrial oils and through the improper disposal of used oils and lubricants.
Spilled lubrication materials can seep into the ground and water and cause much damage since they contain many hazardous substances such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polybiphenyls, polychlorinated biphenyls, sulfurous additives, chlorinated substances and other dangerous toxins. They enter the soil, water and the atmosphere and and wind their way into the food chain and the very food products humans need to survive.
The main cause of performance reduction of lubrication oils is the introduction of various contaminants such as metal filings, soot, and abrasive particles into the the oil. Additionally, oxidation of oil products due to contact with the atmospheric oxygen and other negative factors like high temperatures, and overloads will further reduce the performance characteristics of the industrial oil products. As a resutl, it has been scientifically proven that used oil is by far more toxic than newly refined and un-used oil.
The main danger to the biosphere stems not so much from evaporation of oil in the course of its operation, but from oil seeping into the ground and ground waters. The so called oil lenses can migrate significant distances.
Waste oil has a negative impact on the human body via direct skin contact as well as through the inhalation of oil vapors. A specific list of diseases associated with used oil is difficult to compile since the research into this issue is still ongoing. There are however, known cases of cancer, birth defects, lung and skin diseases all related to oil waste products coming into contact with huumans.
The problem is significant and requires efficient measures, directed, first and foremost, not at alleviation of the consequences, but at prevention of such consequences. This is the principle on which GlobeCore operates.
GlobeCore specializes in the development and production of equipment for purification and filtration of industrial waste oil such as transformer oil, industrial oil, turbine oil, and transmission oil.
For instance, the GlobeCore CFU filter cart units remove particulate matter, soot, free and some dissolved water, water soluble acids and alkali from oil used in industrial equipment. Some of the advantages of this product is mobility, simplicity of operation and servicing, as well as significant extension of the oil’s useful service life. The oil product is processed by heat and vacuum, and the oil can be restored in one pass.
GlobeCore’s CFU units can significantly reduce the amount of waste oil generated by timely filtration and purification of existing oil products being used in your industrial equipment. The longer you can extend the oil’s service life, the less waste oil there will be that must be disposed of and/or stored on site. The probability of releasing used oil into the environment is greatly reduced.
GlobeCore technology offers a highly efficient solution for solving environmental waste problems while at the same time reduces new oil purchases and eliminates the costs and burdens associated with disposing of old oil. The improved reliability and service extension of oil-filled equipment is an added bonus.
