Benchmark Services has the capability of performing high
velocity lube oil system flushes from 40 gpm to 5600 gpm, while
working with a controled temperature up to 185° Fahrenheit. All
equipment is wired 50/60 cycles, 480 volts in order to meet both US
and International standards.
What is an Oil Flush?
After setting the system up for a high velocity flush by
removing all restrictions to flow (using an external flush pump and
filter) oil will be flushed through the lube oil system at
approximately 8 times its normal flow rate.
This high volume of oil will remove scale and particulate
from the piping and flush it back to the main oil reservoir where it
will be filtered. Thermal
shocks to the system will greatly enhance the cleaning process.
The high velocity flush is for the purpose of cleaning the
system. Super clean oil
is simply a by-product of that process that eliminates the need to
replace the old turbine oil or the disposal of that oil there by
saving thousands of dollars plus the peace of mind in knowing that
you have a super clean system and super clean oil.
An ounce of prevention is worth tons in forced outage.
