Contamination in oil systems

One of the most cost-consuming, yet most neglected problems of machinery and equipment operation is inadequate cleanliness of the oil system interior, which corresponds directly to the inadequate cleanliness of oil, thus creating most of operational problems and associated costs.

The impurities are created and transferred to oil systems in the production phase, during installation or overhaul, as well as during the operation of the equipment. During the operation of the machines, the impurities are transferred with oil to the elements that need lubrication, and accumulate on the internal surfaces of pipelines, heat exchangers, tanks, and other elements, creating sediment and sludge.

Hydrodynamic cleaning and flushing of lubrication systems in turbine sets

The method of cleaning and flushing of lubrication systems developed by Ecol is the most effective way for the preparation of new oil systems and overhaul of already-operating systems in all machines and equipment, regardless of size and the level of complexity.

Hydrodynamic cleaning of pipelines

This method is absolutely safe for the natural environment, because the cleaning agent is pure water, and the contamination is organic. Mechanical impurities collected from the internal surface of the oil system, as well as trace amounts of oil are transferred by water away from the oil system.
