Turbine Oil Testing

Ensuring longevity and reliability of your Turbine systems

Turbine Oil Testing

Turbine Oils are used in various industries around the world to lubricate the machinery and bearings in hydraulic turbines, steam turbines etc. Turbine oils also provide effective cooling and protection from rust, sludge and wear in the turbine system. There are various threats to the turbine oil such as water ingression and oxidation, contamination by water causes the corrosion and rusting of metal surfaces, can greatly affect the viscosity of the oil and also speeds up the microbial growth in the oil. Oxidation is caused due to intensive operating conditions, water and air contaminants due to which there is the emergence of acids and varnish, which can cause a change in the heat transfer properties of the oil and can cause unnecessary machinery downtime. Testing is imperative to identify wear and contamination issues, to ascertain the Turbine oils remaining serviceable life and to identify the sources, the type and the level of contamination.

Atlas Lab provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art Turbine oil testing and analysis service. We test Turbine oil as per the following world-class standards such as IS - Indian Standards, ISO - International Organization for Standardization etc. The various tests conducted for Turbine oil are Appearance, Acid Number, Copper Strip Corrosion, Flash Point - Abel, Viscosity @ 40° C, Wear Metals etc. Tests are carried out by experts in the field of testing and analysis with over 40 years of cumulative experience to provide exact results for your Turbine oil-related issues. We help clients prevent avoidable damage to their costly machinery and prevent downtime for preventable repairs. Atlas lab offers a complete solution for Turbine oil with quick and precise test results at a cost-effective price to clients on a global scale.

What are the benefits of Turbine Oil Testing?

  • Confirm if it meets the desired specification
  • Red flag quality issues and alert the client with respect to Turbine oil related problems
  • To ensure no wear and tear, oxidation, microbial growth and corrosion problems by monitoring the Turbine oil
  • To avoid any environmental issues and health risks of the personnel due to contaminated and badly maintained Turbine oil
