EHC system reliability and turbine oil varnish problems are rampant in power generation plants and despite the thousands of dollars spent, many still suffer from ongoing yet solvable issues. For example, in some large-frame gas turbines, varnish problems affect nearly every machine in the fleet. For such critical applications, it is vital that state-of-the-art condition monitoring technologies are employed for achieving reliability and lubrication excellence.
Servo-valve failures cause unnecessary downtime and expense for Paper Mills around the world. Along with bearing failures, blocked filters, and discolored site-glasses; pulp and paper equipment must be monitored and treated for varnish-related issues.
Anywhere industrial lubrication and hydraulics are used, EPT products for varnish and additive monitoring can eliminate oil-related downtime and failure. Robotic controls are used in today's most sophisticated assembly lines. Contaminants in these lubricants can cause the line to come to a grinding hault. EPT products provide high value to these systems requiring precise controls, as it maintains the fluid in an extremely clean, varnish-free condition. Stamping is another process used in manufacturing that is susceptible to yield and quality problems from oil contamination. EPT products allow the yield and quality of the product to improve to like-new machine levels.
Varnish and additive condition are critical issues for plastic injection molding applications. Not only do varnish and additive problems cause downtime and expensive oil changes, but they also affect the quality of manufactured parts.
Varnish problems, additive issues, and elevated moisture levels leading to failure in critical rotating equipment are a key concern for every refinery and chemical operation around the world.
Hydraulic and lubrication system problems can cause millions of dollars in downtime and lost production for aluminum or steel mills. Further, as automatic gauge controls, roll bending, and other sophisticated systems become more common, servo-valve performance and reliability becomes more critical.
