Puradyn Filter Technologies Incorporated (Puradyn) has announced that it has recently shipped an order of puraDYN® bypass oil filtration systems totalling approximately US$50 000 to Kuwait City to Kellogg Brown & Root Services, Inc. (KBR), a global engineering, procurement, and construction company based in the US. The initial order placed by this customer follows a rigorous qualification process that included extensive testing in harsh desert environments on material handling equipment and generator sets.

James Ray, a KBR Regional Contract Manager, said, "Our focus is maintaining equipment for our customers and keeping their equipment in top running condition. The equipment we take care of operates in extremely harsh environments, and we constantly look for ways beyond traditional maintenance practices to better protect our client's equipment. Over the years, engine oil bypass filtration has become a more acceptable practice for these harsh environments. We were aware of Puradyn and, based on its reputation, chose the Puradyn bypass oil filtration system, and after about a year or so of testing, were impressed with its performance and ability in keeping engine oil in 'like new' condition. Our company is gearing up to service generator sets and material handling equipment in a number of foreign countries and we expect to install the Puradyn product on any appropriate equipment. If Puradyn can perform under these extreme desert conditions, it can perform anywhere."

Puradyn systems remove solid contaminants from engine oil down to less than one micron while also replacing base additives to maintain oil performance. KBR is currently using Puradyn's latest filtration offering, the Millennium Technology System (MTS) with its patented Polydry® technology for liquid contaminant and water removal from engine oil. Model sizes range from the small MTS-8 to mid-sized MTS-40 systems.

Puradyn President and Chief Operating Officer, Kevin G. Kroger, said, "Puradyn systems time and again demonstrate superior performance and reliability in tough environments. This initial order is further evidence that Puradyn continues to expand our base of global customers, and we are proud to be associated with such an outstanding company. The Kuwait City location operates its own oil analysis and laboratory facility and, based on the successful results achieved here, should provide KBR the information needed to expand use of the Puradyn system to other locations established in the Middle East.

"In many instances, cost reductions in new oil purchase alone represent significant, direct savings, but the indirect savings are also compelling to any company looking to streamline equipment downtime, storage and hauling of oil to remote locations, and reduced component repairs. By removing contaminant and maintaining continuously clean oil, end users see a notable reduction in engine and equipment repair costs."

Kroger concluded, "We look forward to a long and beneficial relationship with KBR."
