A Supplier's Approach to Turbine Oil Monitoring


To ensure the successful operation of a turbine circulating oil system, the turbine manufacturer, the turbine operator, and the lubricant supplier must cooperate by furnishing their technical expertise.

Examples of turbine oil problems show that effective sampling procedures and monitoring of turbine oils is required to assure a long service life. ASTM Practice for In-Service Monitoring of Mineral Turbine Oils for Steam and Gas Turbines (D 4378) is an excellent guide to accomplish this.
