Original Press Release:

Wirthco Engineering, Inc. Offers the B.O.B. Oil Bottle Draining System, Part of the Funnel King® Line of Products

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - WirthCo Engineering, Inc., makers of Funnel King fluid control products, has added the B.O.B. (Bottom of the Bottle) Oil Draining System to its product line. The B.O.B. is a patented oil bottle draining system that saves 4-5% of every bottle of oil. This allows complete drainage of the oil bottle, saving money, time, and unnecessary waste. In addition, by providing complete drainage of the oil, the container can then be accepted at the recycling station, thereby preventing the unnecessary dumping of these containers and unused oil in local land fills.

"It is astounding to consider that the main reason so few code 2 plastic oil bottles get recycled is because typically 1-2 ounces of oil remains in the bottle after use", said Andrew Wirth, WirthCo Engineering, Inc. "That means that it cannot be accepted by the recycler, which means that the unused oil, and the plastic bottle end up in the land fill. That translates to millions of plastic bottles, and about 3.5 Exxon Valdez-sized oil spills going into the land fill every year. With the B.O.B Oil Draining System, that oil is drained completely preventing oil waste, and promoting the recycling of these containers, and that is something we are really excited about."

The B.O.B. Oil Draining System mounts to either a wall or table top in seconds. The B.O.B. unit holds five oil bottles, and the units can be connected for greater capacity. For more information, visit
