PETROCHEMICAL

Turbo machinery and rotating equipment such as turbine driven gas/refrigerant compressor trains, turbine driven generator packages, fans, pumps, agitators, gearboxes, extruders, gearboxes, and material handling systems are subject to rotating component surface wear, abrasion, and deterioration.  Rotating component wear results in rotating component accelerated aging, production disruptions, and unexpected breakdowns.   In addition, rotating equipment engineers and maintenance teams are responsible for thousands of pieces of rotating equipment and, with limited budgets and time, prioritizing work orders becomes challenging.

Kaydon Filtration 858 vacuum distillation dehydration oil purifiers and KL Turbo-TOC® turbine lube oil conditioners helps keep turbo machinery turbine lube oil in petrochemical plants clean and dry.  As Kaydon purification and conditioning equipment is removing particulate and water from turbine lube oil, potential problems associated with contaminated turbine lube oil are reduced, keeping rotating equipment engineers and maintenance teams from addressing issues related to oil contamination.     

The benefits of ongoing and continuous oil purification and conditioning are:

1.  Increased rotating equipment reliability

2.  Reduction of production disruptions

3.  Helping accomplish rotating equipment project targets
