PIRTEK Filtration Systems Cutting Operating Costs


PIRTEK is well known for its ETA 1 hour on site response to customer needs in the event of a hose or fitting failure. Recently PIRTEK has integrated an additional line of filtration products designed to give an unparalleled level of customer benefits over a broad range of industries and applications.

These PIRTEK Filtration Systems are on-board oil recycling units that filter all hydrocarbon based products down to 1 micron while removing all water from component systems.

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. Our mobile equipment customers have benefited from the PFS unit's ability to extend out hydraulic and transmission oil change intervals eight to ten times.

Combined with the competitive pricing of our systems, PIRTEK has seen entire hydraulic systems cleaned up for less than the cost of an annual oil change. Whether it is a loader or an excavator in a quarry, or a crusher working in a scrap yard, basically if it runs on hydraulic power, the PFS units will immediately save our customers money in oil costs, with additional financial gains coming from extended component life for their high costs items such as pumps and valves.

The versatility of the PFS units has introduced the PIRTEK network to new customer markets as well as allowing our industry leading customer service to expand into even wider customer circles. 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!

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. The constant introduction of clean diesel fuel has allowed our fleet and rental customers to scratch off the list one of their most regular and expensive maintenance issues.

By leveraging the PFS's units ability to extend engine oil drains five to ten times and seeing the consistent results from customers, PIRTEK Centers and technicians have been able to extend component wear to other areas of the same machines for which PIRTEK has already received a hose assembly replacement service call.

Small and medium sized truck fleet operators can begin to see their engine wear decrease through oil analysis and their maintenance and labor costs also decrease.

As the PFS units begin to work their way into the PIRTEK customer base, the synergies and opportunities to present exceptional value to PIRTEK customers continue to grow.

Many of our PIRTEK customers operate on a regional or national basis. Our first national customer has already outfitted their 3rd out of 47 locations last month, with a 6 month roll out which will incorporate approximately fifteen different PIRTEK Centers.

The addition and integration of PFS units over the past 6 months has added a new level of excitement to our desire to be the #1 provider of Fluid Transfer Solutions to our customers in 2013.
