Application

Turbines are highly complex systems in which lubricating oil plays an important role. The oil is used to ensure proper operation, to reduce maintenance costs to a minimum and to prevent turbine failure. Turbine oils are produced from high quality mineral oils that have special properties to reduce demulsification (separation of water) and air release. The level in the feed tank must be monitored to ensure that there is always enough oil available for lubrication.
