If your company uses various oils, lubricants and coolants to operate, MB Fluid Services can be an essential partner in helping you keep costs down by reducing your new oil and coolant purchases and maximizing equipment reliability, all while helping the environment.
MB Fluid Services was founded in 2008 by its parent company, Merle Boes Inc., a full-line lubricants and fuel distributor, servings its customers since 1929. MB Fluid Services was created to work alongside customers to reduce premature equipment failures due to water and solid contamination, incorrect viscosity grade, and additive depletion. In addition, the process reduces new oil costs, waste oil removal, and unscheduled downtime, all while being more environmentally friendly.
More specifically, MB Fluid Services provides solutions for:
- Water contamination, which leads to rust and decreased oil life
- Solid contamination, which causes erosion and plugging of machinery
- Lubricants that become deficient of additives
- Oxidation by-products, like varnish
- Viscosity variations, which can cause overheating or premature wear
- Premature failures, such as pumps and servo valves
“Our environmentally-friendly oil refining system achieves a dual purpose”, says Chad Scholten, Sales Manager at Merle Boes, Inc. “The MB Fluids system helps our clients be environmentally responsible, while saving them money by reducing new oil purchases.”
MB Fluid Services sets up a fluid management program individually catered to each client. Through regular oil sampling, our sales team and technicians are able to determine fluid condition and if needed, lay out a corrective action plan that fits the clients’ schedule. The technicians and sales team at MB Fluid Services are highly trained and knowledgeable – our goals being to save you time, money, and keep your machinery running as efficiently as possible.
By reducing new oil purchases and reducing waste and disposal costs, you will help your bottom line while having peace of mind regarding your impact on the environment. In addition, you will have a partner in the industry with the technology and top-notch customer service to keep things running smoothly.
The oil purification process restores contaminated oil to a “like new” condition, by removing solid contamination, water contamination and high particulate count. MB Fluid Services technicians also have the ability to re-additize the oil if needed. The process can be done on or off-site, either with a portable in-plant filtration device or with our state-of-the-art 53’ oil purification unit. This trailer is self-sufficient, self-contained and generates its own power. It contains tanks, heaters, vacuum dehydrators, particle count readers, and everything our MB Fluid Services technicians need to reclaim the fluids you use and keep your machinery running efficiently. Depending on the machine’s lubricant volume and your company’s needs, the oil can be processed in or out of your machine, without taking machines offline.
Using professionally purified fluids is essential to keeping your machinery running smoothly and it can contribute to the longevity of your equipment. So, what fluids can MB Fluid Services process?
