Emmie 2 Centrifuge for oil cleaning
Mobile separator keeps oils clean.EMMIE 2 Oil centrifuging for particle and water removal from hydraulic oilsWater or particles in oil causes most hydraulic system breakdowns.
Centrifuged phasesAlfa Laval’s upgraded, compact mobile separator unit Emmie.2 for industrial use cleans a range of commonly used oils, including hydraulic oils and lube oils in a single easy operation.
The separator removes 99% of particles in the 2-5 micron range while it also can remove virtually all free water, even at high initial water contents.

Components last longer
By effectively removing contaminating particles from the oil, you prolong the life of your cylinders, pumps and valves substantially. Emmie.2 removes particles down to less than 1 um and removes contaminating water to less than 200 ppm. Just a few percents’ increased usage time for each component drastically decreases downtime and service costs. And, of course, you know what that means for your profitability.
You avoid breakdowns
Clean oil gives you longer operation without unscheduled stops. Cleaner oils also mean fewer breakdowns due to solid particles and that clog pumps, valves and filters. By removing the water you also avoid corrosion in your system.
Reduce your systems’ downtime
Frequent replacement of filters and oil takes time. And during that entire time, your system is no operational. With centrifugal separation cleaning you can use the same service fluid up to ten times longer than you do today. With Emmie.2, your machines are operational substantially longer than your competitors’ machines.
Use the same oil for years
The Emmie prolongs the service lifetime of the oil, thereby reducing oil consumption. Water in the oil causes additives to oxidize and decompose, reducing the lifetime of the oil. By removing the water you can drastically increase the lifetime of your oil.
Reduce the cost for filters
Clogged filters means that replacement is needed more frequent than expected. By effectively removing particles and water from the oil, the unit prolongs the intervals between filter replacement.
Reduce disposal cost
It costs money to dispose used oil. Today, with increased environmental awareness, the taxes and other charges for destroying environmentally hazardous waste are increasing all the time.The Emmie reduces costs for the disposal of used filter cartridges as well as used oil.
The result is more production uptime as well as reduced wear and corrosion on the equipment serviced, the process is so efficient that the service life of the oil can be prolonged many, many times.
Emmie is designed for “plug and go” operation. The unit is plugged in to a single-phase power source, the hoses are connected to the oil tank and the unit is ready for operation. Choose the viscosity of the oil to bee cleaned and press the start button.
Dirty oil is pumped from the tank, cleaned and then recirculated. The module can be easily wheeled around between oil tanks, to serve many different oil tanks.
The system incorporates a screw pump, a PLC control and a built in electric heater, which heats the oil to reach optimum viscosity prior to purifying.
