Clean Planet Mfg. & Labs views the challenge of sustainable manufacturing as a tremendous opportunity to improve our planet.  Our design, development and production of environmentally safe waste fluids management products is the driving force of our company and the result of 30 plus years of experience in the field of heavy equipment and automotive maintenance.

Products & Services for Fossil Fuel Powered Fleets

​Our R&D and engineering and design teams have experienced first-hand, in-field and maintenance shop servicing.  They know full well that even with the most conscientious efforts to prevent fluid spills during the maintenance process, spills will happen as long as a shop is using drain pans. They also know that wind is the service technician’s enemy when changing fluids in the work field. Our integrated and self-contained oil evac system prevents the wind from broadcasting the fluids and to ensure an environmentally safe exchange of used and fresh fluids.

We invite you to experience our products for OEMs and end users ensure spill-free removal and replenishing of oil, fuel, and other fluids found in engine-powered devices.  Our eco-friendly maintenance products strike a workable and sensible balance between a clean, safe environment, improved human health, and the industries that make the globe function.

​The Oil Evac Valve Kit is Clean Planet’s flagship product.  The valve replaces the manufacturer’s oil pan drain plug and eliminates the need to crawl under the vehicle to attach a hose for evacuating the used fluid.  The valve’s PATENTED SAFETY CHECK VALVE feature makes it the safest on the market, and it can be used on a variety of reservoirs, such as transmissions.​

Brackets come in a variety of designs and placement options, making them truly customizable to customers’ needs.  Made of steel and protected with durable paint, the bracket holds the distal end of the hose and quick coupler for easy attachment to a used fluids receptacle. 

Shuttles are designed for in-shop use to transport from bay to bay and receive up to 60 gallons of used fluids.  Once filled, the used fluid is then off-loaded to a shop’s large recycling tank via the shuttle’s controls. 

Custom Tanks come in multiple sizes and for different purposes.  From skid-loaded dual tanks for receiving used fluids and replenishing with fresh fluids in the field to small, compact tanks for use in tight places, CPMI makes them!

Stainless, Drain-Plug-Free Oil Pans combine the best of stainless durability with the environmental and time savings advantages of a galley system that eliminates the drain plug for fast, spill-free oil changes on those snowy days when time is of the essence.  

Stop Those Messy Hose Drips when performing repair jobs! The Mechanic’s Plug ​ is packaged in sets of two per size and as assorted kits containing two per size measuring 1/4″, 5/16″, 3/8″, 1/2″, 5/8″, 3/4″, and 1″.  We also make custom sized plugs to customers’ specs.

CPMI’s patented, vacuum-actuated and closed-circuit system eliminates time-consuming gravity drain of used oil and reduces a Class 8 truck’s used oil removal process from 30 minutes to 3 with no spills, no waste, and no toxic exposure to harm the technician.

Our self-contained system permanently replaces the manufacturer’s drain plug with a safety check valve. With the flip of a switch, used fluid is transferred from the reservoir via the valve and through a connector hose, and into an enclosed collection container that holds the used oil for recycling. In the process, messy used oil catch pans are eliminated, reducing spills on garage floors, down sewer drains and in the work field. More fluids are captured for recycling while eliminating transfer of dirt and foreign materials. It takes 42 gallons of crude oil, but only one gallon of used oil, to produce 2.5 quarts of new, high-quality lubricating oil.(1)

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, one gallon of spilled used motor oil can contaminate one million gallons of fresh water. When used motor oil makes its way through soil and/or sewer systems and reaches sewage treatment plants, even small amounts — 50 to 100 parts per million — can foul the water treatment process. (2)

Spills are long lasting. Spent motor oil is heavy and sticky and contains an extensive concentrated cocktail of toxic compounds, it can build up and persist in the environment for years. (3) 

Our system eliminates these environmental dangers and the liability from your balance sheet. Companies can help satisfy shareholders’ environmental concerns, and at the same time, save significant time over traditional used fluid changes.
