The ELC is able to remove very fine contaminants including oil oxidation products to sub-micron levels and also it removes deposits from system internals.
Theoretically, any particles present in oil can be removed. In other words, anything that is not soluble in oil can be removed. For the actual example, we were able to eliminate about 0.02µm level carbon sludge in the compressed oil used in hydropower plant.
Since additives are dissolved in oil, they are not removed.
Using the electrostatic oil cleaner of an optimum size and for normal contamination level, it is empirically found about 2000 hours between exchanges.
