Annual Turbine Analysis
Turbine oils, particularly those used in steam turbines, are expected to last 10 to 20 years. During this lifespan careful monitoring of both lube oil physical and chemical properties, together with common contaminants such as water and solid particles, is required and should be performed annually. This is true not just of in-service oils, but also for new oils, which must meet rigorous performance specifications prior to selection and use in a new application.
Our Annual Turbine Analysis report is a 9-page analysis summarizing each of the tests we perform and containing a detailed explanation of each test result. The report also contains a summary of finding, as well as recommended actions as identified by our analysts.
