Revivor Oil Extraction Unit
Put the Revivor to work in your Pro Shop and start earning $40 to $50 per hour while providing a much needed service for your customers. The Revivor is an easy-to-use, self-contained unit that safely removes oil from reactive and proative coverstocks. Best of all, it's from Innovative and that means advanced technology at work for you!
Processes 2 balls at a time. Restores ball performance. Heat draws the oil from the bowling balls. Forced air circulates the heat evenly. Electronic controller assures constant temperature. Balls continually rotate during the process. Sorbent pads collect the oil as the balls turn. 8+ years of field testing has never harmed a ball. 2 hour timer allows you to walk away.
Innovative has designed this unit for the sole purpose of extracting oil from reactive and proactive bowling ball cover stocks. Drawing out the oil by the use of thermal reaction is a proven method of bringing back the original characteristics of the ball. The Revivor removes the oil with an even, digitally controlled heat pattern so as not to damage the bowling ball. Balls should have the oil extracted approximately every 40 to 50 games, depending on the lane conditions and the level of performance each bowler wishes to maintain.

- Q: Will the Revivor harm the ball?
- A: No. Eight years of field testing by over 1.000 pro shops as well as extensive testing from Innovative and independent non-bias companies proves it has NEVER harmed a ball.
- Q: How much ball reaction will come back:
- A: 100% like new (provided it has the original surface).
- Q: Do I need to sand the ball to open the pores before using the Revivor?
- A: No.
- Q: Do I need to take the ball out and clean it during the 2 hour cycle?
- A: No.
- Q: Can I leave the ball in the Revivor for longer than 2 hours?
A: Yes, but it is not necessary. You have removed enough oil to roll like new.
- Q: Do I need to leave the ball in the Revivor for the full 2 hours?
A: Only if the oil is still sweating. If you see it "streaking" oil in less time, the ball has finished.
- Q: What should I charge the customer?
- A: That is up to you. We recommend $20.00-$30.00 per ball. Many pro shops offer packages that combine other products or services such as inserts or resurfacing or a small discount for doing multiple balls.
- Q: How many balls can I expect to do?
- A: In season, a 16 lane center should do 2 balls per day, average. It really comes down to how well you promote your services and making sure the customer can see it. The more you push it - the more money you make!
- Q: How long does each Sorbent Pad last?
- A: About 10 balls.
