Varnish issues can be the root cause of turbine-related problems, leading to unplanned or longer than expected shutdowns, which ultimately cost the business.

Using varnish filtration and standard cleaning practices to remove varnish is not effective, especially on severe varnish that has been depositing for years in both hot spots and cooler areas of equipment.

Texaco’s VARTECH technology provides a new method designed to not only clean a running system but also to keep it clean and deposit-free over time, helping to achieve optimum productivity of a plant’s turbines.

Providing a full background on varnish-related issues, how to identify them, how to test effectively and the benefits of VARTECH technology, the Texaco Guide to Effective Chemical Removal of Varnish from Turbines and Centrifugal Compressors is a must-read for the industry.
