Oil Purifier for Combined Cycle Power Plants

Oil Purifier for Combined Cycle Power Plants

  Combined cycle power plants encounter unique oil contamination problems.  Lubricating and hydraulic oils each have their individual challenges.  Among them are water and particulate contamination in the steam turbine lube oil reservoir and varnish, moisture by condensation, and particulate in gas turbine and control oil reservoirs.    Turbine oils are...

Condition Monitoring and Bulk Fuel Filtration

Bulk diesel fuel is common in mining, power generation, transportation, retail and back up generators used at data centers, hospitals and universities (just to name a few).  Global demand for diesel engines are projected to increase 7% in the next 2 years.  With that, Tier 4 High pressure Common Rail (HPCR) injection technology requires cleaner diesel...

Diesel Fuel Filtration and Conditioning

It is widely understood that ultra low sulfur diesel is contributing to tank corrosion, filter plugging and increased wear to name a few.  According to the Battelle Memorial Institute Corrosion in Systems Storing and Dispensing Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD), Hypotheses Investigation, acetic acid, a product of aerobic bacteria, is most likely the cause...
