The Petronex Technologies electrostatic filtration machine is the future technology for lubricant purification in mechanical operating systems. The machine acts like "dialysis" for lubrication systems and is designed for plug and play operations. The units provide constant refining capability without oil changes or downtime. This system allows for particulate removal to the sub micron or molecular level, eliminates varnish and removes water electrostatically without the use of silica, vacuum dehydration or evaporators. Moving at 120 gallons per hour the refining process starts. Depending on how contaminated the oil and the size of the reservoir, 24 - 30 passes through the Petronex electrostatic machine creates a level of purification which exceeds the ISO standards of new oil. Once the oil is purified, the Petronex begins to remove any varnish in the system (this is now a continuous removal as the unit is removing varnish potential faster than it can be created) Periodic filter change is scheduled.
Hydraulic oil replacement can get expensive, not to mention the cost of downtime. With prices at $800+ per barrel, it makes sense to refine turbine oil while it circulates. By implementing electrostatic oil filtration technology you are able to dramatically reduce the need to replace lubricants and eliminate system flushes
And now with the use of NON-VARNISHING PAG-BASED
SYNTHETIC TURBINE FLUID when combined with electrostatic filtration you can add upwards of 30 years between system flushes and bearing replacement. This results in significant operating savings.
Petronex Technologies TURBINE FLUID-25 (TF-25)
Varnish build-up in Gas Turbine lube oil systems is the leading cause of unplanned shutdowns, system “trips”, and resulting in lost energy production. The root cause of these issues is the conventional petroleum-based turbine oil, which will oxidize through normal operation and form varnish and sludge that cause servo valves to stick.
After about 10 years and over 100,000 hours of varnish-free performance, General Electric now includes PAG’s in their GEK 32568h specification for large frame gas turbines.
The Petronex Technologies Non-Varnishing PAG-Based Synthetic turbine fluids are based off of many proven years of services with over 120 gas turbines operating on PAG technology. It is estimated by independent lab analysis and additive monitoring of many years in operation, that a gas turbine that converts to Petronex Technologies Non-Varnishing PAG-based Synthetic turbine fluid can achieve 30 or more years of service on a single charge of fluid. The Petronex Technologies Non-Varnish PAG-base Synthetic turbine fluid is a combination of PolyAlkylene Glycol (PAG) base fluid and high-performance additive package which will not varnish.
When the Petronex Non-Varnishing PAG-based Synthetic Turbine fluid is used, turbine bearings will typically operate at 5 degrees F to 10 degrees F lower temperatures. This is due to the higher thermal conductivity of Group V PAG fluid versus Group I or Group II-IV oils
