Don’t Let Your Fried Foods Fry Your Reputation: Filtration for Consistent Flavor and Quality

For industrial food production companies, ensuring taste and flavor aren’t lost to oil degradation is a top priority – not only for day-to-day customer satisfaction but for maintaining a reputation as a quality provider of fried foods.
We understand that after a while, your frying oil doesn’t stay clean. It starts picking up burnt bits, fatty acids, and other contaminants that can really mess with the taste and look of your fried foods.
Nothing pushes customers away faster than when what they’re eating doesn’t taste quite right. If those flavor swings become too wild, you can bet it’ll sour your image in no time. To make matters even worse, other foods cooked in the same oil can also be affected when not filtered out properly, further compounding the problem.

Enhancing Efficiency with Innovative Filtration Technology 

Enhancing Efficiency with Innovative Filtration Technology 

In today’s highly competitive world, being effective and efficient is key. We are often always looking for ways to streamline processes and save time in both our personal lives and at work. When it comes to filtration technology, being effective and efficient is not optional. With rising environmental concerns and the need for clean water, companies have been extremely eager to make the investment in finding innovative filtration technology to meet these demands. Let’s explore how different filtration technologies are enhancing our efficiency and making a positive impact on our lives one micron at a time. 


The Importance of Filtration Technology 

Filtering out impurities in the industrial process is essential for maintaining high quality standards in your production processes. With an increasing demand for clean water and the need to reduce waste, in a safe and sustainable way, companies are constantly developing new and improved filtration technologies to step up to meet these challenges. 


Oberlin’s Advanced Automatic Pressure Filtration Systems  

One example of an industry leading and innovative solution is the Oberlin Automatic Pressure Filtration System. This technology removes up to 99.99% of total suspended solids from liquids. The filter can remove varying solids, from small metal fines to food crumbs, down to 1 micron. Think of this technology as an invisible gatekeeper guarding the purity of your liquid. It allows only the desired liquid molecules to pass through, while meticulously blocking even the tiniest intruders, down to 1 micron. This ensures that the integrity of your process, and liquid, remains virtually untouched. 


The Future of Filtration Technology 

As the demand for clean liquids and dry solids continues to grow, the future of filtration technology looks promising. Many companies are more focused on investing in research and development to create more efficient and environmentally friendly processes using filtration technology. Additionally, future uses of artificial intelligence and automation in filtration systems could take improving efficiency and reducing the need for manual processes to a whole new level. 


Advancing Filtration Technology

Filtration technology is constantly evolving and improving to meet the demands of today’s modern world. Modern industrial filtration systems are full of innovations that are enhancing efficiency and making a positive impact on our environment and modern production processes. As technology continues to advance, it’s safe to say we can expect to see even more filtration solution applications appear in the not-so-distant future. 

Machine Coolant Basics: Maximize Your Shop’s Efficiency

Machine Coolant Basics: Maximize Your Shop’s Efficiency


Years of experience in the industry, especially in filtration, have taught us the importance of often-overlooked shop essentials.  Machine coolant is a prime example.


Why Machine Coolant Matters

The name says it all – coolant prevents your cutting tools and workpieces from overheating. This directly translates to reduced tool wear, higher-quality parts, and longer machine lifespan.  Like engine oil in your car, it lubricates to reduce friction and carries away metal debris for a cleaner work environment.


Applying Coolant Effectively

Flood Systems: The versatile choice. Cools, lubricates, and evacuates chips.

Air Blast: Simple and effective for certain tasks, but lacks lubrication.

Misting: Rapid chip removal, but consider potential health impacts.


The Challenge of Hard Water

Your location is key! In hard water areas (common in the Southwest and upper Midwest), consider deionized water for your coolant tank. Mineral buildup from evaporation can compromise coolant performance. Some shops use a clever strategy: hard water for the initial fill, then deionized water for top-offs.


Corrosion Protection

Certain metals are prone to rust. Quality coolants create a protective barrier on your workpieces to prevent this.


Is a Universal Coolant Right for You?

It depends. If your shop works with a variety of metals, consult your coolant supplier. You may be able to streamline without sacrificing performance.


Filtration is Key

Those metal ‘fines’ in your coolant? A robust filtration system removes them, extending coolant life and safeguarding your valuable machinery. (Of course, we believe our filtration system is top-notch, but we’ll save that for another conversation.)
