Varnish Removal and Mitigation

Varnish Can Costs Your Plant Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars Eliminate Varnish & Soft Contaminants!

Varnish is a thin, hard, lustrous, oil-insoluble deposit, composed primarily of organic residue, and most readily definable by color intensity. It is not easily removed by wiping with a clean, dry, soft, lint-free wiping material and is resistant to saturated solvents. Its color may vary, but it usually appears in gray, brown, or amber hues.

CAN-AK has pioneered oil flushing and chemical cleaning varnish mitigation and performs a new generation of varnish removal from turbine oils in circulating systems. Our oil flushing and chemical cleaning process not only ensures varnish and soft contaminants are removed but also deposits and buildup throughout the oil system.
