Choose a lubricant with high thermal stability that can help prevent coking in aeroderivative turbine engines.
When your power generation turbines are running, the temperature reaches extremely high levels. Those kinds of temperatures require a high performance capable lubricant with thermal stability. Otherwise, your aeroderivative engines can experience damaging coking, the buildup of solid residues in the engine system.
Extreme temperatures can cause coking deposits that lead to oil starvation and poor engine performance—and may require expensive repairs, part replacement, labor costs, and unplanned downtime.
The lubricant you choose can play a big role in preventing coking.
Eastman Turbo Oil 2197, for example, is high performance capable oil with the high thermal stability to resist coking. It’s the lubricant of choice for airlines all over the world. If it can perform in the extreme temperatures between ground level and 40,000 feet, you can trust it to keep your engines on the job.
You have more than one choice in lubricants. Choose to put confidence in your system with Eastman Turbo Oil 2197.
