Hy-Pro Restores Demulsibility in Steam Turbine Lube Oil

Published Monday, January 16, 2017 10:00 am by Aaron Hoeg

A power company experiencing lube oil demulsibility out of spec across its fleet of base load steam turbines turned to Hy-Pro for help. Through baseline analysis we crafted a condition based solution and have restored demulsibility avoiding costly downtime, unplanned outages and premature oil replacement. In the process we also see that a loss of steam turbine lube oil demulsibility might be a leading indicator of varnish formation. Contact us for more on how integrating a fully inclusive solution to restore demulsibility or as an add on to existing coalesce and vacuum dehydration lube oil conditioners. This is a game changer.

The ability to restore demulsibility in steam turbine lube oil is the best way to keep oil from being condemned, to ensure critical components in steam turbines are protected and to save money on downtime and maintenance costs.
