The RMF Vacuum Dehydration Units are designated oil purification units which can be applied directly to various types of machine reservoirs. The units dehydrate and clean most types of oil such as lubricating, hydraulic, transformer and switch oils by removing particles, gasses, and water. The purified oil satisfied the most stringent quality requirments, such as stated in the ISO 4406.
The Vacuum Dehydration Units neither remove nor alter oil additives. The water removal process is based on pure vacuum evaporation inside a vacuum chamber at a maximum temperature of 60 °C. Solid particle removal is
achieved through a well proven RMF Systems micro filter. The dehydration units do not require continuous attention whilst operating, once connected properly and commissioned, oil purification is a semi-automatic process.
The desired oil temperature can be selected on a thermostat which is included in the integrated heater element. Oil supply and removal from the vacuum chamber is a full automatic process which is controlled by a PLC. The only manual action is the emptying of the pre-condenser and waste water container (depending on model).
Overflow of the waste container or tank is protected through a float switch which will shut down the dehydration unit once the maximum level is reached.
