When Results Matter

Thank you for attending our presentation “Oil and Water Shouldn’t Mix”.  We are pleased to provide the presentation and written article below.  For users with potential demulsibility issues, information on our lubricant conditioning system called SVR™ is provided.  SVR™ can be used on a stand-alone basis or added to an existing water removal system.  To assess if this is a workable solution, we start with a complimentary analysis and evaluation (ACE™) to determine existing lubricant condition, and what can be achieved from lab scale purification.  The ACE submission form and instructions are below.  If we can be of any assistance please contact us at

Oil and Water Shouldn’t Mix Presentation

Presentation from STLE Annual Conference, May 21, 2018 by Dr. Matt Hobbs. The presentation discusses oil water issues common in steam turbines, and offers an explanation regarding why demulsibility issues develop as a lubricants age. Current industry approaches to demulsibility are reviewed along with an improved methodology that has been shown to be much more effective.

Oil and Water Shouldn’t Mix Paper

Paper version from STLE Annual Conference, May 21, 2018 by Dr. Matt Hobbs. This paper offers additional detail that was not presented in the power point presentation above regarding demulsibility issues, approaches, and ultimately a solution to resolve or prevent issues.

SVR™ Turbine Lubricant Conditioner

SVR™ offers takes lubricant maintenance to the next level by removing the oxidation material that accumulates over time causing demulsibility to fail. SVR™ can be used as a stand-alone unit, or before existing water removal systems to improve their performance. In both cases, SVR™ is designed to used permanently. Testing to date has demonstrated that in >90% of cases, SVR™ will significantly improve or restore demulsibility values. A complimentary assessment is offered below that will confirm if SVR™ is a solution for your application.

Our starting point is Analysis and Comprehensive Evaluation or ACE™ . This complimentary analysis and evaluation allows us to demonstrate exactly what SVR would achieve on your lubricant. We offer a full test, cleaning using a lab scale SVR, and a re-test. This report will demonstrate exactly what to expect using SVR.

To see how our program can be used to advance results at your facility, send us an oil sample by filling out the assessment form.
