We’ve specialized for 20 years in turbine applications where we have developed solutions that prevent lubricant deposits. We work with some of the largest turbine fleets in the world achieving unprecedented results and cost savings.
Lubricant varnish production is a problem that will affect most rotating equipment at some point in its normal service lifetime, leading to production losses.
Varnish begins its life as a dissolved degradation product before converting to particulate form and depositing on metal surfaces. Most approaches in the market place do not address this root cause.
As a starting point to EPT’s 4-step Varnish Program, we offer expert laboratory testing that includes a detailed report to outline your lubricant’s condition and demonstrate the impact of our SVR™ system technology in cleaning your lubricant sample.
Our soluble varnish removal (SVR™) system targets and eliminates the primary cause of varnish formation – dissolved oxidation breakdown products.
Our Non-Spark Discharge (NSD™) filters suppress filter sparking by significantly reducing friction. This eliminates the related high-temperature fluid breakdown protecting antioxidants and base oil.
EPT customers receive verification of results through our lab. For remote sites, we also offer Membrane Patch Colorimetry (MPC) test kits for on-site varnish potential testing.
