Turbine Oil Conditioning
Turbine Oil Conditioning Applications
The goal of any plant engineer responsible for the operation of a turbine is to maintain peak operational efficiency. The condition of the turbine oil should meet the equipment manufacturer’s recommendations at a minimum. However, exceeding these recommendations is the best practice. Damage to the overall system due to particulate or water contamination can lead to lost efficiency and costly repairs.
Proper oil conditioning must accomplish two things:
- Keeping particulate to a certain / specific (ISO) cleanliness level
- Maintaining adequate “dryness” of the turbine oil
The elimination of water, particulate, varnish and other harmful contaminants from lubricating oils and fluids is Kaydon Filtration’s area of expertise. Kaydon Filtration offers proven equipment for economical and practical turbine oil conditioning solutions to remove particulate and water. Our TURBO-TOC systems and vacuum dehydration systems are two proven solutions for protecting your equipment investment and extending the service life of your turbines.
