Effective solutions to combat, prevent and remove varnish from lubrication systems
Approximately one in three large industrial gas turbines show signs of oil varnishing. Varnish, a thin, insoluble film deposit that forms on fluid-wetted surfaces, is the inevitable by-product of degradation processes in hydraulic and lubrication systems. The costly effects of varnish can range from downtime and maintenance to catastrophic failures of equipment. Breaux Petroleum offers several solutions to help you identify, prevent and eliminate varnish from your lubrication systems before its too late.
Solutions We Offer
- Oil analysis, results interpretation and customized varnish mitigation strategy
- Varnish testing using Membrane Patch Colorimetry (MPC) — the only test that can effectively identify the onset of varnish within a turbine oil
- Removal of varnish deposits in lubricants and restoration of the oil’s original solubility
How does varnish removal work?
Using our resin-based filtration process, we are able to attack the source of the problem on a molecular level, removing the soft contaminants that form varnish deposits. The filtration allows the oil to regain its solvency abilities and restores oil health throughout the system and its critical components.
