Turbine Oil Analysis

Today’s turbines are subjected to increasingly severe working conditions.   These demands result in oil degradation which can cause lower performance, corrosion, and eventually equipment failures.

  • Oxidation:  Oxidation can be initiated by the presence of wear metals, exposure to air, and higher operating speeds and temperatures.
  • Thermal Degradation:  High operating temperatures cause chemical changes in the base oil and additives, resulting in material deposits and eventually equipment failure.
  • Contamination: Through normal operation, turbines are exposed to a variety of contaminants, such as dust, water, chemicals, and wear metals.   These elements contribute to a variety of issues, such as oxidation and foaming.
