Eliminating Unnecessary Expenses and Oil Waste
Boost AO offers two main advantages to industrial facilities. One, it eliminates the need to change oils because it replenishes the additives and consequently extends the oil’s life. It reduces expenditure and makes operations more cost-effective.
Two, it eliminates unnecessary oil waste. This turbine oil treatment solution helps you do your part in protecting the environment, supporting our Fill4Life™ advocacy.
NEVER CHANGE YOUR OIL AGAIN
Fill4Life™ is Here
Boost AO is a critical step in our mission to reduce unnecessary oil waste and production by transforming your lubes into Fill4Life™ fluids. We’ve created a proprietary technology that can replace depleted antioxidants in oil – replenishing bad chemistry with good chemistry. With this oil treatment solution, you save energy, maximize resources, and generate less waste.

Discover the Full Benefits of Boost AO
Great News for the Planet and Your CFO
For every 1 gallon of Boost AO you use, you save 50 gallons of oil. If you think about it, it’s a huge win for the planet.
It took millions of years for the earth to create this oil, and then it took an immense amount of time, money, and energy to extract and refine it. It falls on you to extend the life of the oil as much as possible.
With Boost AO, this goal is easy to achieve. You don’t have to dispose of waste turbine or compressor oil, and in the process, you help reduce CO2 emission because of your reduced oil demand.
Boost AO turns your turbine oil into a Fill4LifeTM fluid — a substance that both powers and saves the earth. Learn more about our sustainability initiative.
How Boost AO Works
Boost AO is a treatment customized specifically for your turbine oil and designed to rebalance your additive system. The formulation and treat rate are developed based on your original oil formulation and current condition of the in-service oil. The tailored additive components are blended into a concentrate having a similar viscosity of your in-service oil allowing Boost AO to be blended on-site with no special equipment.
Antioxidants are sacrificial and deplete
Not every in-service turbine oil is suitable for additive replenishment solutions. Oil degradation products, mixed formulations and contamination are among some of the reasons that an oil may not be appropriate for restoring antioxidant health.
Fluitec’s scientists have developed a Qualification Test that is required prior to considering Boost AO. Qualification Testing includes running a battery of tests on your in-service oil, developing a customized Boost formulation, blending Boost AO at the specified treat rate with your in-service oil and performing compatibility testing according to ASTM D7155.
Boost Restores Antioxidant Systems
Qualification Testing Process
- In-Depth Analysis of the In-Service oil
- Development of a customized Boost AO formulation
- Boost AO mixed with the in-service oil at specified treat rate
- Ageing and Compatibility tests done according to ASTM D7155
- Results are reported and the in-service oil either passes or fails the test
BOOST AO + ESP: A GUARANTEED FILL-FOR-LIFE SYSTEM
The Combined Power of Boost AO and ESP
While Boost AO and the VITA Electrophysical Separation ProcessTM (ESP) deliver significant advantages on their own, together they create a true Fill4LifeTM system that replaces antioxidants and removes oil degradation by-products for a cleaner, greener operation.
Depleted antioxidants create varnish causing byproducts in the oil
Working Together for Better Results
The thermal and oxidative stresses cause two problems: they deplete the sacrificial antioxidants in oil and create varnish, a detrimental by-product. As a turbine oil treatment, Boost AO replenishes depleted antioxidants but still leaves the problem of varnish.
Fluitec developed the VITA ESP. Through a process called chemisorption, ESP technology removes suspended or dissolved oil degradation products without disturbing the fluid’s additive system. For best results, the ESP media should be tailored to each application and selected based on oil type and condition.
ESP removes the Varnish from the oil and Boost AO replenishes antioxidants
System cleanliness and antioxidants are restored
