The Sage Oil Vac team is hitting the road for the International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) happening Oct. 3-5, 2017, at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky. The three-day show provides comprehensive insight into the latest technologies, innovations and trends affecting the utility and construction industries.

This premier event is also known as “The Demo Expo” — every year, more than 18,000 exhibitors show off their products and technologies to thousands of event-goers.

“ICUEE is a great industry event — especially for those that like to see things operating firsthand,” said Aaron Sage, Sage Oil Vac CEO. “This will be our first time attending with a booth, so we’re excited to bring our best to the table.”

Sage plans to bring several pieces of equipment to the show including the 1C5G Jobsite Fuel and Lube Trailer and the 2H49-5 Heritage Lube Skid. Several members of the Sage team will also be on-site to answer questions.

“In addition to our extensive selection of products at the Sage booth, we are going to be showing a live demo of how our patented vacuum techonology works,” said Chance Castillo, Sage Oil Vac Dealer Development Manager.

According the the website, ICUEE covers more than 25 acres of indoor and outdoor exhibits and product demonstrations. Attendees can expect to see equipment with various functions from all-terrain carriers, attachments and components, to earthmoving and environmental, and more. The machinery on-site is also exhibited in job-like conditions so audience members can see the machinery in action.

Sage Oil Vac most often supplies LubeBuilder systems to customers with crane bodies, work trucks and van installations but as the popularity of the system increases a need for additional used filter receptacle (UFR) options has presented itself. To better meet the needs of our customers’ unique install situations we are now offering:

The wall-mounted UFR is tall with a narrower width. It works great for van or enclosed body installations where it can be anchored to a wall to help support it. It would also work well up against the inside wall of a tall work truck body. The door opens toward the operator and the hinge runs vertically. The top side pack mounted UFR design is meant for the top of a side pack on a service body. The lid opens up like a traditional UFR and the operator can access it from the ground or from the bed. The additional UFR are meant to be mounted inside the bed of the body on the floor. These come in different sizes like 14, 24 and 30-inch widths for a variety of options.

The Sage UFR has been one of our standout featured products since the inception of the company. It is valued by all industries as an essential tool to complete clean oil changes. The UFR works by allowing oil filters to hot drain, which ensures the cleanest possible solution for oil changes and filter changes in the field. Nearly every Sage Oil Vac unit has a UFR as part of the standard equipment offering and over the years UFRs have also been incorporated into Sage skid, trailers and now LubeBuilder designs.

Not enough good things can be said about wind energy. For years scientists have urged world leaders to encourage countries to create alternate sources of clean energy, like wind power, a priority and it seems many have listened. According to the Global Wind Energy Council, the number of wind turbines spinning around the world at the end of 2016 was 341,320. Not only is this great news for our environment, it’s great news for Sage Oil Vac.

Benefits of Wind Power

Wind turbines which convert the energy from wind to generate electricity, require a gear box to function and maintenance is essential to keep parts working properly. Sage Wind Turbine Generator Solutions systems were designed to provide turbine service providers with a safer way to manage oil, antifreeze changes and more. The Gear Oil Exchange (GOEX) unit which was designed in 2007, and the Flush and Rinse unit which was designed in 2010, are now in over 15 countries around the world. In 2016-2017, Sage added Mexico, Japan and Brazil to that list.

“Japan and Mexico are fairly new to the wind energy marketplace,” said Sage Oil Vac CEO Aaron Sage. “It’s great to see our products helping in such a beneficial industry. We’re looking forward to increasing shipments around the world to make turbine servicings easier and safer to manage.”

The GOEX features an onboard filtration system that cleans oil to meet ISO-approved levels with zero-cross contamination to significantly reduce the amount of wear particles in gearboxes. With cleaner oil and a greater frequency of oil changes, you can significantly increase the lifetime of any wind gearbox. A rinse and flush process is also required in turbine maintenance to remove contamination and sediment in many wind turbine gearboxes. Both units provide proactive maintenance approaches to help increase lubricant life and equipment durability.

Murphy Contracting Company, a commercial, industrial and residential earthmoving business located in London, Ontario, Canada, was established by Ron and Karen Murphy in 1999 with three scrapers and one bulldozer to their name. However, in the past 18 years, the Murphy fleet has grown to more than 150 pieces of equipment and now two Sage Oil Vac Lubebuilder systems.

“It took a lot of work to get this far,” said Dan Sullivan Mechanic at Murphy Contracting. “At the 2017 CONEXPO we purchased a Sage LubeBuilder system to install on a couple of our trucks. The kit arrived and we were able to install it in-house. The install went fairly well — it was a bit tricky getting everything we wanted in such a small area on our trucks, but with the variety of tank configurations it worked out very well.”

The Sage LubeBuilder system was added to two Murphy Contracting PM trucks with the following specs:

“We pride ourselves on our commercial, industrial and residential site work abilities,” Sullivan said. “These Sage Lubebuilder systems have only expedited our ability to complete construction contracts efficiently and quickly now that we can service equipment on-site. I really enjoy being able to vaccum oil — not having to pump or gravity feed oil to fill product tanks makes the process very convenient

Sullivan says the LubeBuilder systems have cut Murphy equipment service times in half.

“It is important to have the right tools for the job,” Sullivan said. “We have reached the size where we can cater to the diverse requirements of our valued clients. Since inception, one of our main goals was to expand our capabilities. From our ability to complete cell excavations, to methane gas lines, to leachate systems, to landfill cell liners — we have completed projects of various sizes and complications to reach that goal.”
