Siemens and Fluitec Work Together to Improve Lubrication Performance

A few years ago, Siemens identified a growing lubrication problem in rotating equipment caused by fluid degradation which created deposits known as varnish or lacquer. These deposits coat the internals of machine components impairing its dependable operation.

After significant research and testing, Siemens selected Fluitec’s Electrophysical Separation Process (ESP) as its preferred technology to solve lubricant deposit issues, extending the life of both the oil and equipment components. Siemens and Fluitec are actively providing ESP technology to Siemens’ own operating plants and global customer base.

Mr. Gerard Sterz of Siemens AG Energy Sector in Duisburg, Germany said, “The reliable operation of our turbines and compressors is of critical importance to Siemens. Providing our customers with Fluitec’s ESP technology allows them to extend the life of their lubricant assets while improving plant efficiencies and uptime.”
