More efficient steam and gas turbines are critical to the success of the power generation industry. Improving turbine (energy) efficiency helps reduce fuel costs, which can account for up to 80 % of total running costs, and extend component life by reducing operating temperatures.
Our Klüber Summit CTPS series lubricants are a combination of high-quality hydrotreated petroleum basestocks combined with the highest quality synthetics. They are long-life lubricants formulated with rust, oxidation and wear inhibitors. The innovative technology helps operators minimise cost to produce while maintaining high reliability and improving sustainability in high-temperature steam, gas and combined-cycle applications
The synthetics in Klüber Summit CTPS series oils keep the system free of varnish and deposits, which will eliminate the need for special ionic filtration and reduces the chances of stuck servo valves in systems equipped with hydraulics.
The synthetics also lead to a reduction of friction in gears, which can result in significant energy savings over the life-span of the turbine. This can be especially true for integrally geared centrifugal compressors.
They are formulated to avoid the need for “bleed and feed” operations that may require an additional two or three times the original oil volume as make-up oil.
