About EDI (Extended Drain Interval)

The EDI Lube Oil Purifier was specifically developed to extend oil life in engines or closed lubrication systems such as Hydraulic systems, gearboxes, Thrusters, Azimuths, stern tubes etc. Removing all water and acid including

diesel fuel dilution. Through a clear two stage process of filtration and evaporation, the EDI cleans oil to better than NAS 3-4 (New Oil is typically 6-8) by removing contaminants and maintaining oil to below 1 micron.

Diesel Engines - Connected as a bypass to the lube oil system the unit effectively increases oil drain periods by up to 4 times by ensuring oil is cleaned to 1 micron and evaporating gasses such as sulphur dioxide and trioxide that lead to a reduction in TBN. Any residual acids are combined with and held by the cotton filter. It will maintain the oil in “as new” condition easily extending oil drain periods by many hours and usually gives a return on investment in 6 months.

Closed circuit oil systems- (Hydraulic systems, Gearbox, stern tubes, thrusters, Azimuths, etc). Connected directly to the system through a pressure reducing valve whilst the machinery is operating ensures contaminants are treated immediately.
