Challenges During The Life Of Your Turbine Oil

Today, turbines are expected to operate on a bigger scale than ever before. The fluctuating demand for power output coupled with the demand for greater efficiency from smaller equipment units means that the machinery is working at an irregular pace for extended intervals.

These factors, along with infrequent maintenance and smaller oil sumps lead to issues such as aeration, ineffective water separation and excessive foaming. Left untreated, these can cause severe damage and will dramatically decrease the equipment’s lifespan.

Shell Lubricants has developed a five-point guide for maintenance, to help turbine operators avoid, identify and manage operational issues to promote effective lubricant maintenance and prolong their turbine’s life cycle.
