Do you rent equipment for the Rapid Varnish Removal?
We have varnish in our gas turbine lube oil system that is causing valve stiction and reducing the anti-oxidants in my turbine oil. How can CAN-AK help me?
CAN-AK has developed a Rapid Varnish Mitigation service that will reduce your MPC rating into the normal range (<15) typically within 7-8 24 hour days. When reducing the varnish potential or MPC number we are removing the oxidation by products that deplete the healthy anti-oxidants that prevent valve stiction and premature oil life.
