Lustor storage systems

Three-way filtration

Three-way filtration means that the Lustor System has three different operation modes, whereby the lubricant is filtered throughout the whole process.

As is commonly known, incoming oil is not always clean. So it's essential to clean the lubricant before it's put into the tank. 

Mode 1 (Fill Mode)

Transferring oil from a pail, tote or drum into the Lustor reservoir. Filtering oil as it enters the tank is a common practice in many lubrication systems. This helps to remove any larger contaminants such as dirt, rust, and debris that may be present in the oil before it is stored in the tank.

Mode 2 (Recirculation Mode)

Using a kidney loop system to recirculate the oil within the tank can also be an effective way to further filter the oil and remove smaller contaminants that may have been missed during the initial filtration process. The kidney loop typically includes a filter to remove impurities, and the oil is circulated through the filter and back into the tank to ensure that it remains clean.

Mode 3 (Dispense Mode)

Finally, filtering the oil before it is dispensed is another important step in maintaining the cleanliness of the oil and ensuring that it is free from contaminants that could damage the equipment it is used in.

Overall, implementing multiple stages of filtration throughout the lubrication system, including at the point of entry, during recirculation, and before dispensing, helps to ensure that the oil is as clean and free from contaminants as possible, which can help to prolong the life of the equipment and reduce maintenance costs over time.
