Vacuum Oil, Recycled Engine Oil, Recycled Lubricant
Recycled engine oil(Vacuum Oil) can be combusted as fuel, usually in plant boilers, space heaters, or industrial heating applications such as blast furnaces and cement kilns Recycled engine oil can be distilled into diesel fuel or marine fuel in a process similar to oil re-refining, but without the final hydro treating process. The lubrication properties of motor oil persist, even in used oil, and it can be recycled indefinitely.Used engine oil can be reprocessed into fuel that can be used in furnaces for heat, or in power plants to generate electricity for homes, schools and businesses. It can also be used in industrial and utility boilers, blended for marine fuels, and other uses. Used engine oil can also be re-refined into lubricating oils that meet the same API specifications as virgin motor oil.
Uses for recycled used oil
Used oil can be cleaned of contaminants and can be recycled again and again. There are many uses for recycled oil, including:
· industrial burner oil
· mould oil to help release products from their moulds (e.g. pressed metal products, concrete)
· bitumen based products
· an additive in manufactured products, and
· re-refined base oil for use as a lubricant, hydraulic or transformer oil.
