Turbine lube-oil systems are designed to cool bearings, flush contaminants away from rotating parts, prevent leakage of gases, provide hydrostatic lift for shafts and actuating valves in the hydraulic circuit and protect lube-system internals. Turbine oil formulations must handle large temperature fluctuations and the ingression of contaminants such as dirt and water. Monitoring in-service turbine oil condition for deterioration and degradation can significantly extend the life of both the lubricant and the turbine.
To help users understand how turbine oils deteriorate, Bureau Veritas has developed VitalPoint® – a series of four test packages for monitoring the condition of in-service turbine oils. With VitalPoint®, Bureau Veritas can show you how to implement a meaningful turbine oil analysis program to maximize service life.
This package covers the majority of the testing outlined in the TOQ®, in addition to determining the varnish potential, additive levels and degradation mechanisms. Each report includes customized, detailed interpretations and recommended actions.
