    Here at McRae Combustion we are frequently asked about how the process of recycling oil filters works. They want to know what is involved in taking a dirty used oil filter and converting into top grade scrap. So that is why we've put together this page. The following illustrations and descriptions walk you through a day in the life of a used oil filter as it works it's way trough the McRae Combustion Systems Oil Filter Recycling Process

    How Do You Recycle Oil Filters?

    Lucas Lane Reclaiming works with any company that performs oil changes. We supply a 55 gallon barrel for the used oil filters to be stored in. We pick-up and process these filters, at our farm based facility, by first crushing them into 35 to 45 lb. cubes. After that we load 6 ½ tons of these cubes into our thermal processing machine (big oven). The cubes are heated at temperatures up to 1300 degrees F over a period of 18 to 20 hrs. As the temperature is increased the oil, that wasn't removed by crushing, flows to a collection tank.


    This reclaimed waste oil can be used for the fuel for the thermal processing machine. The exhaust heat will also be used to help heat air and water for the farming operation. The process produces oil free, #1 scrap steel which can then be sent to a Steel Mill or Foundry to be melted and used to produce new products.

    All filters are recycled 100% and we guarantee that nothing goes to the landfill. We provide our customers with copies of our Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection permits and environmental insurance certificate.

    Coming soon a video of the process.


  • Voice of Minnesotan:

    Despite our reputation for wearing funny winter hats and fishing in sub zero temperatures through holes in the ice, Minnesotans aren’t stupid. But sometimes we do stupid things. For instance, over six hundred thousand gallons of used motor oil are disposed of, improperly, each year right here in Minnesota. Considering that one gallon of motor oil can contaminate one million gallons of water you don’t have to be a genius to figure out what’s wrong with this picture. Not that I’m calling you stupid. But on the other hand, this is the "land of 10,000 lakes so dumping motor oil on the ground pretty much makes you stupid, and lazy too, because there are over a thousand places in Minnesota where you can properly recycle motor oil and filters just call 1-800 cleanup for the location closest to you.
