Where the cost of failure is deeply felt.
Turbine oil systems are vast and lubricants are expected to keep going forever. The list of possible problems is also impressive. New oil formulations bring potential for longer lubricant life, but not without risks. The key issue is varnish. Solubility characteristics of new lubricants, remnants of old Group I oils, poor demulsification or air release can all contribute. Our suite of tests for oxidation stability and varnish control will help ensure smooth operation without unnecessary trips and costly downtime.
