The in-service monitoring of gas and steam turbine oils has long been recognized by
the power generation industry as being necessary to ensure long trouble-free operation
of turbines (according to ASTM D-4378-08).

FocusLab has extensively experienced and technically full advanced testing program
for predictive and proactive turbine maintenance program

Focuslab has developed Turbine Oil Analysis Package , Testing and Program . They are
divided and grouped into 2 categories:-

1.Turbine Oil Analysis -Monitoring TOA-M
2.Turbine Oil Analysis -Quality and Performance TOA-QP

 

1.Turbine Oil Analysis -Monitoring (TOA-M)

Modeled from the tests recommendation in ASTM D 4378-08 for regular monthly
oil analysis-monitoring in order to monitor wear metal debris , oil consition .
and contamination.

Product Data & Service Sheet of TurbineCheck™ 817

Application

This test package will be additional test of TurbineCheck 814 (T814) and/or TurbineCheck 815 ( T815) for equipment /machine as following

  • Gas & Steam Turbine - Lube System
  • Air / Gas Compressor , Centrifugal Type with large lube system
  • Turbo Machinery -oil system

When the lube system will be require to be performed this test package

  • Turbine Oil Analysis Program - regular period analysis / testing / monitoring of critical turbine oil systems
  • And additional tests TurbineCheck 814 (T814) and/orTurbineCheck 815 ( T815) in semi-annual and annual period of Turbine Oil Analysis Program in order to monitor , assess and evaluate quality , performance and oil life of turbine oil system after regular period Turbine Oil Analysis -Monitoring (TOA-M) of TurbineCheck 814 and/or TurbineCheck 815
  • Semi-Annual Period Testing , Annual Period Testing Implement together with Turbine Oil Analysis -Monitoring (TOA-M)TurbineCheck 814 and/or TurbineCheck 815 for semi-annual and annual Turbine Oil Analysis program

Oil Sampling

Ideally and technically, the good oil sample should be the most representative of the
body of lubrication system and have lowest contamination to the oil information .
Or simply , the good oil sampling will have to meet 2 objectives as following :-

  • Maximize data Density of oil information
  • Minimize disturbance

The oil should be sampling while turbine is running and reached its operating temperature
If unable to take sample while turbine is runing ,then it should be done as soon as
possible after the turbine engine has stopped.
The oil should be sampling,preferably while the oil is in turbulent flow point or
free-flowing line, not a dead zone line or location.

Sampling Location

It is essential to establish suitable and correct sampling points on the turbine lube system..
to be monitored , such that consistent samples can be taken as easily as possible.

Turbine Lube System Sampling Points should be designed to have both primary sampling
points and secondary sampling points

  • Primary Sampling Point

Location where regular routine oil samples are taken for monitoring and trending
wear metal debris ,oil condition and oil contamination .
See picture T1

  • Secondary Sampling Point

For dianostic and trouble shooting
For measuring wear metal debris and oil contamination by individual components , and
can be located anywhere on the system to isolate upstream components. This is
where wear metal debris and contamination contributed by individual components will
be found.
See picture T1
