With most turbine oil expected to last 10-20 years, monitoring in-service turbine oil condition for deterioration and degradation can significantly extend the life of both the lubricant and the turbine.
Oil analysis can be an extremely viable means for preventing gearbox failure, reducing downtime and controlling maintenance costs in both industrial and heavy duty applications.
Turbine oil analysis can help maintain a properly functioning turbine, which is critically dependent on the performance of the turbine oil in use. Preventing equipment failure and avoiding unscheduled downtime depends on the condition of the lubricant in use. Turbine manufacturers carefully specify the lubricant characteristics required for optimum performance, defining them by a broad set of detailed performance and laboratory bench tests.
Turbine oil analysis has been recognized by the power generation industry as a critical monitoring process. It has long recognized that continually monitoring these fluids is necessary to ensuring long, trouble-free operation. Routinely evaluating and analyzing oil degradation and wear allows plant maintenance and reliability personnel to execute a cost-effective, preventative maintenance program. Request Information
