In recent years, portable filtration units, often referred to as filter carts, have become a common tool in the lubrication professional’s arsenal. Increasing demand for these systems has led to the development of a wide range of new products and driven down prices, which is a good thing. When filter carts first came onto the scene they were primarily used by service providers for decontaminating large systems. These early models were typically designed for low viscosity oils in large volume systems and were on the expensive side, making them unsuitable or impractical for many applications. As awareness of precision lubrication and contamination control grew and maintenance programs began utilizing these services more often, many began purchasing their own filter carts, but usually only one unit for an entire plant. Very quickly, plants began to realize they were wasting time and money by switching products, so they started dedicating filter carts for particular lubricants in order to avoid flushing requirements and to increase their capacity to decontaminate systems. Now, the next evolution in offline filtration is permanently installed kidney loop systems. While portable systems will always have their place, permanent solutions offer several benefits including better average fluid cleanliness and far fewer man-hours.
