Rising demand for Westfalia oil purifying centrifuges has spurred the formation of a Mineral Oil Group at Centrico, Inc., North Vale, N.J., it was recently announced by Wend Wendenburg, executive vice president of Centrico.

Centrico, Inc. is the North American distributor of Westfalia separators and related systems.

Westfalia oil-purifying separators remove both water and solid particles from fuel and lubricating oil. This allows engines to burn heavier, less expensive grades of diesel fuel, as well as recycle lubricating oil. The results include major savings in fuel and lube oil costs, reduced engine wear, reduced maintenance requirements, and less engine downtime.

Head of the new group will be Klaus Lohmeyer, manager of marine and power systems for Centrico. Mr. Lohmeyer is a former seagoing chief engineer with experience in a wide tonnage range of merchant vessels. Before coming to Centrico he was employed at Westfalia Separator AG for 15 years where he became a specialist in oil purification systems. He will be responsible for all sales and engineering activities in four fields: (1) marine applications, including small boats, offshore drilling, fisheries, etc.; (2) land-based power plants; (3) gas turbine fuel purification and washing systems; and (4) lubricants, coolants and hydraulic fluids, etc., used in the metalworking industries.
