Turbine Oil Analysis can minimize the risk and astronomical expense of a power plant shutdown for just a small investment.


Equipment Types & Test Packages


wind turbines

Wind Turbines

The extreme environmental and mechanical pressures wind turbines are exposed to can significantly affect equipment reliability making oil analysis a critical part of wind turbine maintenance.


gas turbine

Gas & Steam Turbines

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.


generators

Generators

Regardless of purpose and usage, the primary reason for testing generator engine and cooling system fluids is to avoid unplanned downtime with wear and contamination being the biggest concerns.


gearbox

Gearboxes (filtered & unfiltered)

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.
