OilPure Vacuum Jet Dehydration
Vacuum Jet Dehydration technology , developed by OilPure Technologies, Inc., is designed to remove dissolved and free water from industrial lubricating oils. This is the latest technology in water dehydration from lubricating oil which can provide a lower cost capacity of removing water down to 10 ppm in hydraulic oil, turbine oil, quenching oil, cutting oil, and other oils etc.
Vacuum Jet Dehydrator utilizes the atmospheric air to absorb dissolved water from oil. Oil & dissolved water mixture is heated to 145 °F to 160 °F by an immersion heater and pressurized through OilPure's proprietary jet eductor. This causes atmospheric air to mix with oil.
Air and oil mixing action turns fluid into aerosol in a special designed cyclonic separating tank. At the right temperature any air (even humid air) will absorb moisture from the oil and cause water to change from liquid state in the oil into a vapor state. The cyclonic forced air will carry dissolved water to the steam above and allow dried oil to fall to the bottom.
Conventional vacuum distillation works on the principle that water boils at 170 °F under 29 inch Hg. vacuum, rather than 212 °F at atmospheric sea level. Dissolved water vaporizes from the vacuum chamber and is drawn into the condenser which turns vapor into water droplets. Vacuum distillation uses an expensive, high maintenance vacuum pump to draw moisture vapor from wet oil.

Advantages of OilPure Vacuum Jet Dehydration over Vacuum Distillation
Hydraulic oil, quenching oil, lube oils, vacuum oil, cutting oil, turbine oil, transmission oil, grinding oil, honing oil, phosphate ester, rust preventing oil, rolling oil etc.
There three different types of Vacuum Jet Dehydrators:
Ther are 3 groups of Vacuum Jet Dehydrator.
Model: VJ-50 for oil reservoir size up to 50 gallons with 300 cc or 10 oz of water * removal per hour and 3 GPM flow capacity.
Model: VJ-100 for oil reservoir size up to 100 gallons with 600 cc or 20 oz of water * removal per hour and 5 GPM flow capacity.
Medium Vacuum Jet Dehydrator
Model: VJ-150 for oil reservoir size up to 300 gallons with 1 liter or 1 quart of water * removal per hour and 7 GPM flow capacity.
Model: VJ-300 for oil reservoir size up to 600 gallons with 2 liters or 2 quarts of water * removal per hour and 10 GPM flow capacity.
Large Vacuum Jet Dehydrator
Model: VJ-450 for oil reservoir size up to 900 gallons with 3 liters or 3 quarts of water * removal per hour and 15 GPM flow capacity.
Model: VJ-600 for oil reservoir size up to 1200 gallons with 4 liters or 4 quarts of water * removal per hour and 20 GPM flow capacity.
* Note: This estimated water removal rate will be vary depending on oil viscosity and degree of water emulsification .
OilPure does not use oil
flow rate to determine filter size as commonly uses in conventional
vacuum distillation. Typical vacuum distillation always uses oil flow
rate to determine the size of water removal.
For an example :
For hydraulic oil reservoir size 50 gallons with 3% water content (or
1.5 gallons), we recommend to use vacuum jet dehydrator model: VJ-50 which
has about 1/3 quart of water removal per hour capacity.
