PIRTEK is known for its ETA 1 hour onsite response to customer needs in the event of a hose or fitting failure. Recently PIRTEK has integrated an additional line of filtration products.
These PIRTEK filtration systems (PFS) are on-board oil recycling units that filter all hydrocarbon based products down to 1 micron while removing all water from component systems, according to the manufacturer.
In 2012, PIRTEK mobile service and sales technicians installed the PFS units on all types of stationary manufacturing equipment, from steel slitter gear boxes to huge plastic injection molding machines. The PFS units have the ability to extend out hydraulic and transmission oil change intervals eight to ten times.
The versatility of the PFS units has introduced the PIRTEK network to new customer markets. The PFS units have turned what was quoted to be a $25,000 gear box oil change for a customer into a $4,000 job while cleaning the existing fluid several levels cleaner than the brand new oil that was going to cost the customer six times as much, according to the manufacturer
Another new market that has opened to the PIRTEK network is the diesel bulk tanks present in companies that operate or rent machinery and equipment. With the known cleanliness issues of diesel fuel, and the add-on effects of bio-diesel algae, many customers have regularly seen high cost service and machine transport costs weigh as a drag on their profits. By providing continuous flow, the PFS “plug-n-play” filtration cabinet will remove all contaminants down to 1 micron, while its water absorption capabilities and magnetic core technology inhibit the growth of the diesel bug.
