Reconditioning involves the onsite treatment of used oil to remove impurities, typically extending the life of the lubricant. In some cases, firms contract to provide this service to a user, and in other cases, the facility owner reconditions their own oil. There are a wide range of systems and services that are offered for reconditioning. In general, reconditioning is most suitable for use in plants that have a large volume of similar oil (such as hydraulic oil) that is amenable to a specific process.
