Your choice of lubricant can improve the availability and reliability of your turbine engines.
Power plant operators have a choice in the lubricant they use in their turbine engines—and there’s one choice that can lead to better engine performance and improved maintenance: Eastman turbo oil.
In a trend started in the aviation industry, power plants are switching from standard performance capability (SPC) to high performance capability (HPC) class lubricants. Developed in accordance with OEM and military standards and specifications, HPC oils offer improved hydrolytic, thermal, and oxidative stabilities—all factors that reduce coking and improve engine start-up, reliability, and performance.
Higher thermal stability reduces the amount of coking in the engine—resulting in reduced maintenance costs, shorter downtime, and increased return on engine operation.
Improved hydrolytic stability improves oil stability of a unit required to start on a moment’s notice; it is especially useful for units where there is potential water in the oil system.
Superior oxidative stability leads to longer oil life and improved operations for an engine.
With so many people relying on the efficient and continual operation of aeroderivative turbine engines, the choice in turbine oil becomes a matter of ultimate trust. In this business, there should be no room for doubt. That’s why many turbine engine manufacturers and operators alike trust Eastman turbo oils.
