Southern Technologies Bypass Filter Systems:

Bypass and Cartridge Filter Systems

The Southern Technologies Combust Filter Systems, Patented Technology, is a chemistry and cartridge system that has the ability to remove Solid Particulates, Water (even if Emulsified), and the Acids that develop in industrial and hydraulic oils.

 

This technology has demonstrated its ability to restore contaminated oils and fuels to new clarity and as new oil/fuel is added to replace that is used by the equipment the essential chemicals are replaced.

 

Based on lab analysis a “Chemical Package” may be added to restore the oil within the American Petroleum Institute (API) Chemical Standards allowing the oil to remain in service for extended periods of time if not indefinitely.

 

When companies come to know this technology as a standard practice for engine or industrial oils, oil purchases, inventory management, oil replacement and disposal costs in terms of hazardous waste and money will be reduced 75%. Hydraulic and other oil use will also be reduced much further.

 

 

 

  • Our system, filter Oils and Fluids to 2 Microns in 1 pass.

  • Operators using Southern Technologies Combust Oil By-Pass Filters Extend Oil and Fluid Drains by 4x’s or more.

  • Southern Technologies Combust Filters Customers Buy and Dispose of 75% Less Oil Each Year.

  • This is a Huge Environmental / Sustainability Statement and Operational Advantage.

 

 

Key advantages from the Southern Technologies Combust Bypass Filter System

 

 

  • 2 Micron Filtration

  • 100% Water Removal

  • Soot Removal

  • Extended Engine Life

  • Extended Oil Change Intervals

  • Pollution Prevention

  • Reduced Oil Consumption

  • Quick Return on Investment

  • Ability to take oil samples on the low-pressure side without accessing the main oil system.

 

 

In a 30-90-day trial the Combust Oil By-Pass Filtration Unit will provide quantifiable results.

 

The quickest way to improve your Environmental Sustainability Statement would be to install the Combust Oil By-Pass Filtration System as did Sunbelt Rentals (see following) on your entire fleet.


Your business will reduce oil purchases, oil inventory, oil usage and oil disposal 75%.  

 

 

 

Contamination Particle Size vs. Engine Life in Microns

General Motors published this chart that represents a test on Detroit Diesel Engines to determine wear rates vs. lube oil contaminant levels.  The test revealed, wear rates are 8 times less when lube oils are filtered to just 5 microns. The “By-Pass” filter in conjunction with the main full flow filter allows the oil to pass through a dense element, which offers a finer filtration to clean the oil and not remove any detergents.

 

This is a Huge Environmental / Sustainability Statement and Operational Advantage.

Pressure sensor/gage indicates when filter needs to be changed.  Brass ‘check valve’ makes it easy to grab a 3oz oil sample for analysis. Consistent oil analysis shows when oil becomes contaminated requiring an oil change.

 

 

Southern Technologies Combust Bypass Oil Filtering System Versus Conventional Oil Analysis Results from Smithfield Foods / Transportation

The Smithfield testing conclusively proved benefits well beyond initial expectations.    

   

  • Using By-Pass Oil Filtration has shown remarkable results proven thru oil analysis.

  • Smithfield Foods Transportation has extended the oil drains for their fleet to 100,000 miles.

  • Keeping the oil clean resulted in a 4 to 5% increase in mpg.

 

Any company wishing to enjoy these benefits should take this testing as a standard, implement the Southern Technologies Bypass Oil Filtration System and measure the results against this benchmark or baseline.

Single Stage SLOW FLOW RATE

Taking 1.5 gallons of oil per minute, Southern Technologies Combust Filters synthetic filter media provides a consistent 3 micron filtration ensuring all harmful wear metals are removed in a single pass.

Southern Technologies Combust Filters media has an ISO 16889 RATING of Bx(c)=200
This Beta rating means that the filter traps 99.5% of all particles 3 microns or larger on each pass.

ISO 16889 is the international standard for Multi-Pass Testing to determine the efficiency (beta rating or beta ratio) and the dirt-holding capacity of the filter.
 

Engine life is substantially increased by keeping your oil pure and clean.

Sunbelt Rentals is the largest equipment rental company in the U.S. Sunbelt conducted an oil by-pass filtration study.

 

Based on the results, Sunbelt Rentals is equipping their fleet of generators with Combust Filters Oil Bypass Filtration Systems.

 

This will significantly reduce scheduled oil changes and the associated labor costs, oil costs, equipment downtime while improving equipment health. https://www.sunbeltrentals.com/about/

  • Sunbelt, using Southern Technologies Combust Filtration Systems, filter their oils at the rate of 32 oz. of oil per minute.

  • Southern Technologies Combust Filters synthetic filter media provides a consistent 3-micron filtration.

  • This ensures all harmful wear metals are removed in a single pass.

  • Southern Technologies Combust Filters media has an ISO 16889 RATING of Bx(c)=200.

  • This Beta rating means that the filter traps 99.5% of all particles 3 microns or larger on each pass.

  • ISO 16889 is the international standard for Multi-Pass Testing to determine the efficiency (beta rating or beta ratio) and the dirt-holding capacity of the filter.

  • Engine life is substantially increased by keeping your oil pure and clean.

  • Oil samples were easily taken using the “check valve” on the Combust Filters By-Pass Filter head.

  • Oil samples were taken every 250 hours.

  • The Southern Technologies Combust Filter kept the oil clean as the oil samples consistently came back “OK” or within tolerance out to 2,500 hours.

  • Sunbelt now consistently can run 2,600 + hours between oil drains.

  • The first year in full production, Sunbelt had 3 engine failures versus the 30+ in each of the prior years.

  • Sunbelt is now using this power unit success to install Southern Technologies Combust Oil By-Pass filter units on their OTR GENSETS.

 

The objective is to go from the current 15,000-mile oil drain to 50, 60 or 70,000-mile oil drains.
