2S6: Oil condition monitoring and varnish mitigation for steam/gas turbines and compressors

Pierre Vanderkelen, VP Intl Sales, Fluitec Wayne Buckland, Owner, CTG Lubrication Services


SteamGas Turbines and Compressors provide a stressful environment for lubes to survive in. As equipment duty cycles are increasingly demanding on oil, the oil formulations are evolving to deal with these changing conditions. These new oil formulations are more advanced, but require more care to ensure maximum performance and oil life. Oil Condition Monitoring (OCM) provides the most advanced and up-to-date knowledge available to assist asset owners and operators to get the most from their new longer lasting & higher performing lubes.
