Solutions by Industry


Primary metals production environments pose a number of challenges for rolling and rod mill lube oils, gear lube oils, hydraulic oils, and turbine oils.  Water intrusion during the production process, added with incoming dirt and debris, combine to contaminate lube and hydraulic oil reservoirs in steel and aluminum mills, jeopardizing critical production equipment.

Kaydon Filtration has extensive experience with conditioning lube and hydraulic oils used in steel and aluminum mill operations.  Kaydon’s oil conditioning systems integrate easily into existing mills, and working independent of your existing lube and hydraulic systems, continually removing water and particulates from lube and hydraulic oils.  Areas where Kaydon’s 858 vacuum distillation dehydration oil conditioning systems can be applied:
