Oil in­no­va­tion greases wheels

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

A UNIQUE and in­no­va­tive tech­no­log­i­cal ap­proach has won WT Hy­draulics this year’s 2017 Kal­go­or­lie Boul­der Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try Busi­ness of the Year award.

The Bi­bra Lake com­pany took out the award in the 11-20 em­ployee cat­e­gory.

WT Hy­draulics’ dis­cov­ery that heavy ma­chin­ery and fixed plant oil could be cleaned and reused again and again has set it apart as lead­ers in the in­dus­try.

Its por­ta­ble oil clean­ing unit con­nects di­rectly to en­gines, trans­mis­sions and hy­draulics, us­ing an oil driven cen­trifuge to­gether with vac­cum de­hy­dra­tion.

This process re­moves sub-mi­cron sized par­ti­cles of dirt and wa­ter with­out re­mov­ing any chem­i­cally bonded ad­di­tives, re­tain­ing the oil’s pre­mium qual­ity.

WT Hy­draulics manag­ing di­rec­tor Kraige Cooper said each in­di­vid­ual at the com­pany played a part in it re­ceiv­ing the award, which boosted morale.

“The team of val­ues­driven in­di­vid­u­als and our wise tech­nol­ogy ap­proach, is the rea­son WT Hy­draulics stands out as be­ing in­no­va­tive and tech­nol­ogy fo­cused,” he said.

The com­pany’s high reach drill, com­mis­sioned in 2008 by SRG, is another in­no­vate de­sign that has con­trib­uted to the com­pany’s quick suc­cess.
