The new line was designed with a dissolved air filtration system; a clarifier injects dissolves air into the clarifier tank, which helps pull oil out of the system. Every tank now has sensors that autofill if needed, and monitor the recirculation and filtration systems. Ruger also went with a different heating system than the gas-fired tanks it had; working with CJI, it brought in Parker Boiler to manufacture a newer system, two Parker T1460R high-efficiency hot water boilers, with modulating firing with 300°F and 125 PSI trim. Parker also built a TAV1224 vertical air separator; TEH2460 139-gallon expansion tanks that are all rated for 150 psi and 450°F; as well as three Burks end-suction centrifugal pumps rated at 275°F air cooled and 400°F water cooled, all with 5 hp TEFC motors. “There’s going to be a lot more efficiencies all the way around,” Thompson says.
