Centrico's Westfalia Oil Purifiers Improve Engine Performance

The great advantages of efficiently and reliably cleaning diesel fuel and lube oils are well recognized, and Centrico, Inc. of Northvale, N.J., offers a wide range of Westfalia Oil Purifiers for this purpose.

Westfalia Oil Purifying Centrifuges are being specified by diesel engine manufacturers and shipbuilders to remove water and impurities from heavy fuel oil, to improve engine performance and reduce the possibility of breakdowns due to diesel engine damage. They are also widely used to remove carbon and metal particles from lube oil, preventing premature engine wear, reducing downtime and greatly extending lube oil life.

Westfalia OSA/OSB models are used where automatic, continuous operation is required. They incorporate self-cleaning disc-type bowls designed for optimum oil-water sep- aration even when oil characteristics and feed rates change. OSA/OSB models are available with maximum rated capacities up to 19,000 liters/ hour (4,000 gph), but actual throughput depends on viscosity, specific gravity and other properties of the oil.

Westfalia OTB take-down oil purifiers are designed for dewatering and removal of solid impurities from fuel and lube oils containing a small proportion of solids. They are currently in use on many service vessels in the Gulf area, and in other workboats throughout the world.

Centrico, Inc. is represented in the Gulf area by Marine Engineering Inc. (ME) of Belle Chasse, La.
