Removing and Preventing Lubricant Varnish

SVR™ is the first of its kind, engineered lubricant conditioning system, designed to protect and manage lubricant life and system reliability.

SVR™ is the first of its kind, engineered lubricant conditioning system, designed to protect and manage lubricant life and system reliability.

Using ICB purification filters, SVR™ goes beyond solid contamination removal, focusing on the root cause of lubricant failure: dissolved oxidation material. As a result of managing oxidation material, lubricant breakdown and additive consumption are reduced significantly, mitigating equipment-related failure.

SVR™ features and benefits

  • Quickly reduces and prevents servo valve sticking
  • Restores normal MPC varnish potential and acid number (TAN/AN)
  • Proven protection against solid and dissolved varnish
  • Significantly reduces solid contamination
  • Works all the time, including operating conditions when the varnish is dissolved in the oil
  • Eliminates the varnish formation cycle that typically occurs when the oil cools during turbine shutdown
  • Engineer approved system designed to facilitate rapid approval and deployment
  • Very low maintenance and time requirement – turn it on and let it run
  • Low cost of ownership and operation

Despite the excellent lubricating and safety properties of phosphate ester lubricants, many turbine and Electro-Hydraulic Control (EHC) users struggle with their maintenance.
Resistivity is a critical performance indicator for phosphate ester (PE) uid quality. Low resistivity values are associated with electro kinetic wear, a common failure mechanism...
Water is the most common and damaging contaminant found in hydraulic and lubricating systems.
