Leading Aftermarket Industrial Supplier
A worldwide filtration distributor
Aftermarket bypass filters will play an essential role in achieving net-zero CO₂ future. In addition, Capital Filtrations Inc has implemented a range of injunctive relief to control emissions and waste minimization. While soot particles cannot be avoided, our filter lineup's robust chemistry prevents obstacles by keeping soot particles from clumping together long after the dispersants in other oils give out. Our technology ultimately minimizes abrasive wear, maintains viscosity levels, prevents filter clogging for longer engine life, and safely extends drain intervals.
Idling is the number one source of air pollution globally, emitting more than 20 pounds of GHG into our environment. According to the American Trucking Association (ATA) estimated $2000 annual increase in maintenance cost per truck due to idling.
Typical OEM filters remove particles from 40 microns or higher, leaving behind dirt, rocks, chips, dust, water, and other contamination causing the soot. As soot agglomerates, it blocks injectors and attaches itself to engine surfaces totaling 6% of U.S. GHG emissions in the construction industry.
Oil and Gas storage tanks release methane from gas escaping through a failing seal caused by a cracked or corroded material such as pipes or hoses. The extent of methane leaks from the natural gas system is one of the largest uncertainties regarding the environmental impact of the oil and gas industry.
Rail transportation emits about 0.2 pounds of greenhouse gases per passenger mile (55 g/km) when each car is filled with 50 passengers. As a result, diesel trains that operate in enclosed stations can emit large quantities of pollutants, leading to poor air quality and threatening the wellbeing of frequent travelers and workers.
The U.S. military has produced 1.2 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions since 2001, According to the Costs of War, an ongoing project from the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University. Furthermore, in 2017 alone, CO₂ emissions from the military added up to 59 million tons.
The shipping industry is responsible for a significant proportion of the global climate change problem. In addition, more than 3% of global carbon dioxide emissions can be accredited to ships that produce carbon dioxide emissions. Along with CO2, ships emit various global warming pollutants, including black carbon (BC), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and nitrous oxide (N2O).
How Does Capital Filtrations Inc contribute to sustainability?
We supply high-quality self recycling filters. Our custom handcrafted filtration systems are designed with universal media technology to filter out solid and liquid particles down to 1 micron with a 99.1 % holding capacity. Combust Filters have demonstrated their ability to restore contaminated hydraulic and industrial lubricating oils to a cleaner than new oil condition. In addition, Filtakleen Hydraulic Filters are designed to be used in conjunction with the primary filter. This system continuously filters 10% of the oil in the circuit, providing additional filtration to a much finer tolerance than the OEM filter.
Biodegradable Fuel and Oil Additives
As an integrated distributor, we explore for, produce, refine and market products essential to society. We supply biodegradable fuel additives registered with the EPA for various diesel and gasoline applications. Capital Filtrations Inc applies innovative thinking, and we continually invest in new technology, growth projects, and the communities where we operate.
What is CleanBoost, and how does it protect my fleet?
CleanBoost biodegradable lubricants and fuel additives are fuels derived from corn starch from renewable biomass and achieve a 50 percent GHG emissions reduction requirement. The definition and the schedule of advanced biofuels include cellulosic biofuels and biomass-based diesel.
CleanBoost is designed to control asphaltenes in diesel fuel to provide a super-clean fuel while improving fuel. CleanBoost ensures condition monitoring and helps the engine run cooler. With today's 15ppm fuel, the components fail every day, causing thousands in repair and stranded vehicles and equipment with significant downtime issues.
CleanBoost diesel fuel additive has been tested for increased lubricity in today's ULSD fuels. ASTM D-6079 shows a considerable reduction in friction over diesel alone, which in return will increase the life of fuel system components and engine life. Our products are manufactured under the ISO 9001:20015 standards.
Diesel Fuel Treatment has been tested with both Herguth Labs and Southwest Research Institute to show the lubricity improvement over regular #1 and #2 diesel fuels. Utilizing wear scar and load rates, CleanBoost was proven to increase lubricity by over 50% in most cases.
