Portable Turbine Oil Conditioning
By Jack Burke24 May 2018
Filtration Group Corp.’s Hydraulics Group recently expanded its offering of Turbo-Toc Turbine Oil Conditioning Systems to meet the need for portable filtration systems.
Turbo-Toc systems have historically supported long-term turbine operation and significantly reduced the probability of failures or unscheduled maintenance due to contaminated turbine oil, the company said. The KLP Series expands the overall family with 3 and 5 GPM portable models. The new 3 and 5 GPM models were designed specifically to address the needs of customers looking for a cost-effective solution where a higher capacity system would be excessive, the company said.
The KLP Turbo-Toc turbine oil conditioning system’s portability provides as-needed oil conditioning for a selected oil reservoir during equipment uptime, and adds an additional benefit during shutdown by quickly preparing the turbine oil for equipment start-up. After the system has removed the water from the turbine oil, it will accumulate in the coalescer vessel. When it has accumulated to a preset level, the automatic water drain will discharge the water from the system.
The KLP Series may be installed on a single reservoir or moved between multiple turbine oil reservoirs. The KLP Series uses the same filter media and technology as the KL Series Turbo-Toc Turbine Oil Conditioners and is capable of meeting ISO Cleanliness Code 15/13/11. All models in the KLP series come with a standard pre-filter for ultra-fine particle removal. Particulate filtration is rated at Beta (5.1) = 1000. An optional heater may also be added to the system to reduce the time to raise oil temperatures upon start-up.
