Where do you perform your services?
Services are generally performed on-site. Occasionally, fluids can be remotely purified as necessary.
How many times can a fluid be purified?
Sun Coast has demonstrated that most fluids can be purified many, many times over. In fact, when fluids are kept in good operating condition, their useful life can be extended by over 1000%.
How often should I decontaminate my fluid system?
Because Sun Coast is a reliability focused organization, we recommend system decontamination at each equipment outage, prior to initial commissioning, and after any catastrophic failure.
Who does the actual work?
We do! Our technicians are high trained and hold various industry certifications and credentials.
How do I know that my fluid and system have successfully been purified?
Sun Coast utilizes real-time state-of-the-art technology in fluid analysis such as laser particle counters. Our on-site instruments will measure fluid and system conditions throughout the process and the data is immediately available to us and our clients. Furthermore, once the project is completed, Sun Coast sends all samples to an independent laboratory for further testing and verification.
What happens to the contaminants that are removed?
Solid contaminants are collected in bulk and in filter media. Moisture and gasses are either collected or scrubbed out during the process. Removed contamination is either left behind at the plant or we can arrange for its disposal according to local rules and regulations.
What does the purification process cost?
Fluid purification, depending on volumes processed, typically costs far less than the cost of new replacement fluid. In fact, most of our clients can expect to save tens of thousands of dollars annually in reduced new fluid purchases alone.
Will the RSI Process damage or remove my fluid’s additives?
No. With few exceptions, additives are evenly dispersed in solution throughout the fluid. Occasionally, when certain fluid additives are large enough to be removed, Sun Coast will change the process to ensure this doesn’t happen.
Is color a good indication of my fluid’s cleanliness?
No. Color has little to do with cleanliness levels. In fact, fluids can often appear to be normal while actually they are severely contaminated.
