Our system affords the manufacturer the ability to modify their routine maintenance by increasing the time between oil drains up to fourfold, thus assisting the end users in saving money by reducing their purchases of new oil and the cost of disposing waste oil, as well as the reduction of overall maintenance labor. The payback for this particular application was approximately one oil change.”
