      Several papers have recently been published discussing the problems of lubricant varnish, the mechanisms of formation and methods to "solve" lubricant varnish. Yet many challenges remain in solving varnish problems when modern oil formulations are used in certain applications, including large-frame gas turbines and centrifugal compressors. This is because the...

      Microscopic particles are the most harmful form of lubricant contamination. They initiate irreversible microscopic damage that causes macroscopic damage, which disables and destroys bearings, gears, valves and other components. Lubricants can be filtered to remove microscopic particles; however, particles can damage equipment before being removed by filtration. The most proficient...

      The foaming property of a fluid is one of its basic physical properties. Unfortunately, foam can cause serious problems with the life and performance of the fluid and the equipment being protected. Even though foam performance is often a defined specification for a new fluid, it is often ignored on...

      Free radicals formed by oxidation or spark discharge are frequently at the root cause for varnish and deposit formation in turbines. Traditional methods of analyzing used oils such as viscosity measurement, acidity or carbonyl oxidation is usually inadequate to predict eminent field problems. This presentation discusses why different behavior is...

      Misalignment left uncorrected can have damaging effects on machine components. Misalignment will reduce coupling life, bearing life and overall motor health. It can be a bit confusing when trying to identify misalignment using vibration analysis because the vibration response is often dictated by the mechanical configuration of each machine. Therefore,...
