Studies by Electric Power Research Institute have concluded that over half of the forced outage hours related to bearings, journals and lube oil systems were due to contaminated oil. This contamination comes in the form of free, emulsified and dissolved water and also particulate matter.

Since it is often difficult if not impossible to prevent water from entering the lubrication system, it is extremely important to remove the oil before it causes permanent damage. Filtervac offers two (2) types of oil purifiers that remove both water and particles to provide a Total Oil Purification System.
