  • Varnish Potential Testing of Turbine and Hydraulic Fluids
    Oxidation of a lubricating fluid can lead to viscosity increase, varnish, and sludge formation. Antioxidants are additives used in. lubricating oil formulations to prevent or slow this process and provide fluids with a long, useful life. The rate of oxidation is. dependent on anti-oxidant types
  • Food Processing Plant Extends Service Interval Ten Times, Eliminates Varnish Buildup with Synthetic Compressor Oil
    to shorten the oil's service lifetime. The oil's breakdown was. accelerated by its sensitivity. to the high operating temperatures. As the oil. degraded inside the compressor,. by-products of its breakdown would cause. a build-up of a hard, sticky "varnish" on the internal metal surfaces
  • War on Varnish Q&A
    My oil analysis report this month indicates a jump in TAN. Should I change out my oil? You never want to change out your oil based on one test result. It is best to look oil analysis trends over time. First, you want to compare the result to your historical oil analysis data to determine if TAN
  • Guide to Measuring TAN and TBN in Oil
    A high concentration of acidic compounds in a lubricant can lead to corrosion of machine parts and clogged oil filters due to the formation of varnish and sludge. When a lubricant breaks down, acidic by-products will be formed from the chemical decomposition of the base stock and additives
  • E-guide for Measuring TAN and TBN in Oil
    A high concentration of acidic compounds in a lubricant can lead to corrosion of machine parts and clogged oil filters due to the formation of varnish and sludge. When a lubricant breaks down, acidic by-products will be formed from the chemical decomposition of the base stock and additives
  • Residue
    deposits are likely to occur. Such deposits, called residue, can plate out on hard surfaces in direct contact with the circulating fluid. The presence of tramp oil, rust preventatives and insoluble soaps due to water hardness or dissolved metals (such as iron or aluminum) lead to this type of residue
  • Molykote (R) Synthetic Fluids Offer up to 40% Better Cost/Performance Over Conventional Mineral Oils
    . of 140-160°F, the lifetime of a mineral-based lubricant is cut in half by every. 20°F increase in temperature. As a mineral oil degrades, by-products of its. breakdown may cause a build-up of a hard, sticky "varnish" on the internal. metal surfaces. This build-up adversely affects performance
  • Advantages of Linear Encoders Over Rotary Encoders
    . The limited use of both mechanical parts and miniaturized circuits minimizes the overall footprint of the devices. Furthermore, magnetic technology. is highly immune to external interferences such as light, oil, grease, water, chemical contaminants, etc. Additionally, magnetic technology enables
