Fluitec International launches new “fill-for-life” turbine oil
Fluitec International has released Infinity Fluids’ new turbine oil (TO) product that is the first of its kind on the market, the company announced.
By effectively removing varnish-producing by-products, Fluitec has created a “pure” turbine oil that can dramatically extend the life of the application, it claimed. Infinity TO eliminates the need for varnish mitigation technology during the life of the turbine oil. Its proprietary additive system was designed to not only capture, but also neutralise, degradation products to avoid forming deposits. It comes with a 10-Year Deposit Control Guarantee that effectively backs the turbine oil for years after integration.
“In effect, Infinity TO is the last turbine oil our customers will ever need. As the latest piece of our Fill-for-Life system, it’s not only the environmentally friendly solution but it’s the cost-effective solution as well. We’re thrilled to be able to offer such a revolutionary product and we can’t wait to see the positive impact Infinity TO has on the power generation and turbine industries.” said Pierre Vanderkelen, CEO for Fluitec.
Infinity TO’s performance characteristics were based on results obtained from the following tests: RULER, MPC, RPVOT, Viscosity, Acid Number, Demulsibility, Foam and Metals tests. The test results showed that after 18 weeks of rigorous testing the product, there was virtually no varnish by-product.
“Our goal for this product is to change the way the industry views oil. What if everyone viewed oil as a true asset rather than just another expense? That perspective shift would really, honestly, change the world. Infinity TO is a huge step in the right direction.” said Vanderkelen.
