My Question Is

Used Oil Recycling

In today’s world, cars are an important and necessary part of everyday life. All cars require engine oil and other fluids like transmission and brake fluid to run properly. To keep a vehicle running well, an owner should change the vehicle’s motor oil and fluids regularly as recommended by the manufacturer.

What is used motor oil?

New lubricants are generally 90% Base Oil and 10% Additive Pack. The Additive Pack is mixed with the Base Oil to enhance the lubricating qualities of the Base Oil. With use, it is the Additive Pack that breaks down under the stresses and strains of an internal combustion engine. It is for this reason that engine oil has to be changed at regular intervals. Whelan Refining extracts the Additive Pack by distillation such that the Base Oil can be re-formulated with a fresh Additive Pack to make a new lubricant - over and over again.

Base Oil - a valuable resource

Base Oil is refined from Crude Oil and is a valuable resource both in its original form and as a waste oil. It can be reused and recycled again and again through reconditioning, reprocessing and re-refining. These recycling efforts help to:  

  • Conserve natural resources
  • Protect the environment
  • Reuse an existing resource
  • Save energy
  • Save money
