Petroleum oils are chemically aggressive substances that, in the presence of certain external conditions, are able to interact with other materials. Burning waste oils can result in such undesirable components as sulfur oxides, carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides, dust, ash, soot, etc., entering the atmosphere. Substances contained in waste oils can cause serious illness, as well as lead to the development of pathologies in newborns. This is where the question arises: “Where to put the used oil?”.
Of course, in each case, the degree of exposure to waste oil depends on the physiological characteristics of the human body. Upon contact with oil, each individual has his own acceptable concentration of exposure and dose limit.
The severity of diseases and harm to the human body of used petroleum oils, their vapors and products of combustion – this is not a fully studied area. However, in Europe, statistics were kept regarding such cases, and when their number was in the thousands, the governments of many countries were forced to impose restrictions on the turnover of almost all types of petroleum oils.
Waste oil can be used in everyday life for the treatment of the back side of country fences or boards, which will be laid as floorboards. This treatment helps to protect wooden products from the negative effects of fungi, moisture and mold.
Some developers recommend adding used oil to asphalt or used bitumen. In their opinion, this increases the final plasticity of these building materials, which makes them more durable.
In the construction industry, waste oil can be used as a separating layer in the production of reinforced concrete products and monolithic reinforced concrete. Interestingly, special emulsions were originally intended for lubrication of forms and formwork, but used oil is cheaper at the price. Environmental organizations are opposed to such use of mining, since in this case toxic substances may hit the surface of the walls of new buildings.
In our opinion, the most preferred method of handling waste oils, both in terms of ecology and economics, is their purification and regeneration (restoration).
The transformer oil recycling of mining properties involves the removal of all harmful impurities – water, metal particles, oxidation products, resinous compounds, soot, etc. GlobeCore is one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of equipment for the regeneration of transformer, turbine, industrial, transmission and other types of oils. GlobeCore installations allow you to fully restore the operating parameters of used oils to normalized values, which makes possible their further use for their intended purpose. The recovery process itself is environmentally friendly, economical and energy efficient.
