Common properties that are must haves in the turbine oil
Updated: Feb 24, 2022
A) Oxidation Stability: Oxidation stability is a chemical reaction that occurs with a combination of the lubricant and oxygen. The rate of oxidation is accelerated by high temperatures, water, acids, and catalysts such as copper. The service life of a lubricant reduces with an increase in temperature.
B) Viscosity Index: The viscosity index (VI) is an arbitrary, unit-less measure of a fluids change in viscosity relative to temperature change. It is mostly used to characterise the viscosity-temperature behaviour of lubricating oils. The higher the VI, the more stable the viscosity remains over temperature fluctuations.
C) Filterability: Capable of being filtered or separated by filtering.
D) Low Sludging Formation Tendency: Having low sludge formation tendency.
