Extend The Life Of Your Turbine & Compressor Oils

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.


BOOST AO BENEFITS

  • Indefinitely extends the life of your oil
  • Eliminates turbine / compressor oil purchases
  • No oil changes
  • No need for expensive and risky flushes
  • Transforms your oil from a consumable to an asset
  • Guarantee – no risk
  • 100 % success rate
  • Reduces carbon emissions through demand reduction
  • Increases RULER™ test results
  • Increases RPVOT results

Environmental & Financial Wins

Great news for the Planet and your CFO
For every 1 gallon of Boost AO, 50 gallons are saved from the earth. Think about it: It took millions of years for the earth to make your oil – then a tremendous amount of time, energy and money to extract, ship, refine and formulate it. Shouldn’t you do everything possible to extend the life of the oil you use, for as long as possible? Our customers enjoy the environmental benefits of not having to dispose of waste oil and lower CO2 emissions by reduced demand of oil. Even more, they are saving money on both ends. Boost AO customers do not have to pay for waste handling fees, nor do they have to spend money on new oil.

How It Works

Antioxidant Rebalancing

Boost AO is customized specifically for your 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

Qualification Testing

Not every in-service oil is suitable for additive replenishment.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
Boost AO + ESP (Electrophysical SeparationProcess™)

A true Fill-For-Life system will both replace antioxidants and remove oil degradation by-products. Fluitec provides Boost AO and our ESP System so you will never need to change your oil.

Depleted antioxidants create varnish causing byproducts in the oil

BOOST AO and ESP WORKING TOGETHER

Through oxidative and thermal stresses, the sacrificial antioxidants in an oil will deplete. The by-product of these processes causes varnish. Boost AO will replenish depleted antioxidants into the oil, however the existing varnish-causing molecules also need to be removed.

This is why Fluitec created ESP. This technology relies on the principles of chemisorption. ESP selectively removes oil degradation products that are in suspension or in solution without disturbing the fluid’s additive system. For optimal performance, ESP media is fully customized for each application and is selected based on oil type and condition.
