HYDROELECTRIC TURBINES

Hydroelectric power generation is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to supply electricity to your industrial and residential customers.  Since flowing water is used to turn your generation turbines, hydroelectric generation is a leading form of green technology, produces few harmful byproducts and is completely free from dependence on fossil fuels.  However, because water is a key factor in the power generation process, water infiltration into turbine oil reservoirs is an ongoing challenge for hydroelectric power generators.
Most hydroelectric power plants are outfitted with the following types of equipment:
 
  • Governor hydraulic oil system
  • Guide bearing oil reservoirs
  • Thrust bearing oil reservoirs
  • Spherical water and pump valves
 
All of these systems rely on clean lubricating oil to operate.  Removing water and particulate contamination from your lubrication system with a Kaydon Filtration Turbo-TOC© oil conditioning system can:
 
  • Eliminate up to 70% of all hydraulic and lube oil component failures.
  • Extend your periods of up-time
  • Prevent unnecessary maintenance work
  • Extend the lifespan of your costly lubricants
 
With more than 70 years of experience in turbine oil conditioning and coalescing technology, we have the expertise and the experience you need to overcome water contamination challenges in your lubricating oils.  To lean about how we’ve helped many of the world’s leading hydroelectric power generators extend the lifespan of their equipment and lubricants with cutting-edge oil conditioning technology, click on the link below or contact your Kaydon Filtration solutions expert.
