Our expertise & quality

Over the past 30 years, we have accumulated a wealth of experience and a depth of knowledge about oils and other liquids and how they are filtered. We are constantly developing our products, in line with changes to industry standards, new technical requirements and emerging technologies. Our work with clients from a wide range of industries – including marine, offshore, energy, manufacturing, defence, process, mining and construction – provides us with new insights and helps us to further develop our knowledge, techniques and filtration systems.

Why change oil when you can keep it clean?

Our products are manufactured to the highest standards and are rigorously tested to ensure that they are of a consistently high quality. We are ISO 9001 certified and our state-of-the art production facility meets the highest possible standards. We are, in fact, so confident that our products are outstanding and will exceed all expectations, that we offer a 90-day money back guarantee.

The problem

Microparticles, moisture and salt cause oil to lose its lubricating qualities, leading to corrosion, additive degradation and the formation of resins and deposits. This causes mechanical parts – such as valves – to jam, seize up and become worn, which in turn leads to costly, time-consuming repair and maintenance work.

The old solution

Much of the oil on our planet – a dwindling resource – is simply being discarded once it has become contaminated or oxidised. This is a colossal waste, particularly as oil can actually last forever. You just need to know how to clean it.

 

 

 

 

 

The new solution

 

Aegir and Hans discovered that by using a cellulose external cleaning system, they were able to filter out the harmful microparticles and moisture, thereby eliminating wear, oxidation and erosion.

 

 

 

 

How our technology works

The Europafilter cleaning system is similar to a human kidney, gradually cleaning the lubricant every time it passes through your system – until it is spotless.

Most oil filters are capable of filtering to roughly 2-5 μm, in accordance with ISO and NAS standards. However, studies have shown that 70% of the contaminants in oil are smaller than 1 μm.

Unique capillary filtration

Our unique, patented capillary filtration system is able to catch these harmful microparticles, because it filters out particles as small as 0.1 μm. Not only that, but it also filters water and salt out of the lubricant, thereby preventing oxidation and corrosion. Despite our focus being on microscopic filtration, the capacity of our system is far from microscopic. Before a replacement filter is required, the Europafilter will trap up to 1755 g of microparticles, up to 3 litres of water or a combination of both.

We are dedicated to reducing our collective impact on the environment, so it will come as no surprise that our system is entirely chemical-free. The Europafilter has been designed to help the environment stay as fresh and productive as your oil

Saving you time & money

A Europafilter will deliver a return on investment within a year, but in most cases it will have prevented an hour of downtime much sooner, often within just a few weeks. A single hour of downtime is all it costs. Which is roughly the time it takes to change the oil. Oil which costs money. And someone has to change it.

Financial savings

  • Less oil consumption
  • Fewer or no more oil changes = lower staff costs
  • Less wear = fewer replacement components and parts
  • Greater reliability = less repair and maintenance time
  • Fewer in-line filter changes = lower hardware costs
  • More energy efficient = energy savings

Hidden savings

The Europafilter not only cleans the oil going into the system, it also cleans the entire system using the same oil. Again and again and again. This extends the lifecycle of every single part in the system. And significantly reduces costly, time-consuming and above all unnecessary repair and maintenance work.

Greater efficiency & productivity

  • Greater reliability = less downtime and production losses = higher productivity
  • Fewer or no more oil changes = lower staff costs
  • Less wear = fewer components changes = lower staff costs
  • Greater reliability = less repair and maintenance time
  • Fewer in-line filter changes = lower staff costs
  • Lower oil temperature = higher oil viscosity = better performance

Hidden benefits

  • Greater reliability = consistent quality = competitive advantage
  • Longer machinery lifecycle

Environmental benefits

  • Sustainable use of fossil fuels
  • Less toxic waste being discharged in the environment
  • More energy efficient due to higher quality oil

Minimise maintenance costs, maximise performance and productivity and improve the longevity of components. Invest in a Europafilter oil cleaning system.

Our history

It all began in the early 1980s, when Master Mariner Aegir Björnsson worked in the fishing industry in Iceland. He was dissatisfied with the inadequate way oil was being filtered and frustrated about the constant oil changes. Missed catches of fish meant considerable financial losses, and the huge volumes of oil being discharged were having a major impact on the marine environment he worked in every day.

He could not understand why there wasn’t a better solution. Particularly at a time when the world was starting to notice environmental changes and trying to find ways to conserve our limited supply of fossil fuels.

He began researching the idea for a solution to this enormous, global problem in his workshop at home. He soon came across an interesting concept being developed in the US. Unfortunately the technology was still in its infancy and was not available as a commercial product.

That is when he met Hans I Storebö, a mechanical engineer who was also aware of the impact this problem was having on the environment. He immediately saw the enormous potential of Aegir’s vision, and the two began developing their groundbreaking filtering system.
