ecoREM

Are your assets achieving 100% output?

A sub-optimal performing cooler manifests production constraints and lost capacity. In normal operating conditions efficient functioning coolers provide a 20˚C delta to ensure equipment operating temperature ceilings are avoided. In the absence of adequate cooling performance, system downtime and costly production losses are a reality.

ecoREM, our non-harmful and ecological chemical cleaning service, removes unwanted contaminants including debris, oxides and varnish from piping or vessels. This ensures 100% production capacity and optimal performance by your asset.

Reduce maintenance and system downtime with ecoREM.

What can I expect from EPT Clean Oil’s high velocity flushing service?

EPT Clean Oil’s approach is customized according to customer needs with flow rates of up to 600 gal/min. Our flushing process adheres to the ASTM D6439-11 standards incorporating other industry best practices and proprietary procedures based on our extensive experience in flushing to ensure successful results.

Does my new turbine need to be flushed?

Every new turbine needs a commissioning flush. Factory and off-site spools will contain contamination within, and this needs to meet OEM specs before start-up.

Does every refurbished turbine need a flush as well?

Yes, due to the possibility of contamination from bearings or gearbox failure.

Do I require a flush if I’m changing oil types?

In this case, a flush would be essential to remove old oil caught in low spots and connections/fittings so that it does not contaminate the new oil.

Do I require a flush if my oil has high ISO or particulate levels?

OEM filters on factory packages may not address levels of contamination. A flush may help, but an SVR™  skid with 1-micron filters could be a better solution.

If I have high AN or varnish levels in my oil, do I require a flush?

In this case, an SVR™ would be a better solution as it addresses AN and varnish as well as varnish precursors to bring oil back into specification.

Would a flush help with high H20 content in my oil?

A flush or off-site filtration with a coalescing system would be a solution to your high moisture content. Also, utilizing a TMR™ N2 on your system would benefit your oil reservoir by not allowing any moisture incursion into your system.

If I have high ISO in my system, would a flush help?

Check the specifications on your OEM filters. Sometimes OEM specifications only state 6-micron particulate filters or higher, and you may want to proceed with a lower micron rating such as 3-microns or lower.
