Generator Manufacturer Installing puraDYN Systems

puraDYN Filter Technologies Inc. announced that one of the largest manufacturers of medium-size power generators (gen-sets) in the world has elected to install puraDYN® systems on their worldwide production of generators. Shipments to this manufacturer in 2002 have exceeded $350,000. Kevin G. Kroger, puraDYN's President and COO, said, “This recent decision to install our systems came after extensive testing which proved that the puraDYN helped this manufacturer safely extend the oil drain intervals to match their required routine maintenance. 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.”
