Major Water Contamination in Turbine Lube Oil…
One of our utility customers called in Friday afternoon with an emergency. They dumped a large amount of water into their 5000 gallon turbine lube oil reservoir and the turbine was down. We responded on-site within 24 hours with our crew and one of our rental 50 GPM vacuum dehydrators.
In all honesty, we had never seen oil this saturated with moisture! And being that the customer asked for a turn around time of just 48 hours; our backs were against the wall. Our crew went to work and had the reservoir cycling within 5 hours of being on-site. In just 36 hours later, the oil was back on spec and the client was ready to start back up.
Take a look at the before and after pictures attached. The results speak for themselves.
