High Velocity Oil Flushing

Which Kind of Oil Flush Should I Use for my Equipment?

These products start in the dissolved form, accumulating until the lubricant reaches its capacity, referred to as the saturating point, forcing any excess to convert into insoluble degradation products. Without regular turbulent flushing with a high-velocity system, varnish and sludge can be a source of unreliability and the root cause of mechanical or other failure types.

Can a High Velocity Oil Flush Cause a Sudden Failure?

Oil flushing is a term used to describe a variety of activities related to removing lube system contamination and cleaning the internal components of your system.

There are several types of oil flushes, from more complex high velocity oil flushing projects to hydraulic system flushing or a simple flush with a small filter cart. To select the proper oil flushing method, you should consider the overall plant objectives, the types of contaminants in the system, and the condition of the lube system components.

6 Keys to Maintenance and Lubrication Planning

Maintenance and lubrication, when done correctly, can have a large impact on productivity. To ensure your machinery is operating at the highest quality-standard possible and avoiding costly shutdowns or delays, maintenance and lubrication planning is crucial. In this article, we’ll dissect the six principles of having a quality maintenance and lubrication plan.

Contamination Exclusion for Turbines and Other Applications

It is significantly more difficult and costly to remove contaminants from machinery than it is to modify and protect equipment against contaminant ingression. Especially in turbine applications with a large volume of oil, keeping possible contamination sources away from lubricated equipment and performing routine flushings are your best lines of defense. Contaminant exclusion revolves around modifying equipment to protect against solid particles, water, and other contaminants that are trying to enter your machines, thereby avoiding costly repairs and machine downtime.
