Mining



Large mining equipment such as excavators, front-end loaders, earth moving equipment and mining operational equipment such as booms and buckets are heavily dependent on lubricants to facilitate the smooth operation of their many moving parts. Lubrication and hydraulic oils are a large part of the mining process and equipment maintenance. AGC Refining & Filtration, LLC helps with management and reclamation of diesel fuels and oils, while providing ease and efficiency in the recovery of waste streams. With a projected increase in global lubricant usage through 2022 due to deregulation, the resurgence of the U.S. Rust Belt, and Global demand, from 36.36 million tons, industrial lubricant usage is expected to increase as manufacturing demands increase.

As with all industries, waste oil is an output of industrial vehicle and machine maintenance. While advances in technology has expanded the time span in between lube replacement, operations still do not optimize the valuable waste oil that they own, and treat it as a waste to be disposed of.  A lube oil purification or waste oil re-refining system enables customers to retain the value of their oil fluids and reduce costs over the long term.   

AGC Refining & Filtration, LLC is a world leader in lubricant oil purification. With our patented systems, recovery of waste oil is now becoming an industrial normal. Our recovery systems utilize the AGC Oil Conditioner as a means of purifying used lubricants. AGC Oil Conditioner (AOC) is the workhorse in this industry and is used to dehydrate, degasify, and purify insulating, lubricating, hydraulic, mineral, synthetic, and fuel oils that are used all over the world. The AOC uses vacuum distillation, heat, and particulate filtration to purify these oils by removing solid particulates down to ISO 14/13/10, and removing 100% of dissolved and entrained gases and water down to 5 wppm. The AOC restores the flashpoint and the viscosity of the oil to as-new or better conditions.

Previous industrial assessments on global clients have proven that most of our solutions have a 3-18 month return on investment. This outcome is favorable, since many major assets in large organizations have returns on investment that far exceed this time frame. In a time when efficiency is paramount to any organization,and purifying lubricant oils for reuse are easy cost-cutting measures large for operations to implement. By removing waste disposal costs, and nearly indefinitely using existing lubricants as opposed to regular virgin lubricant replacement, our solutions are the ideal way to cut costs in two ways at once.
