CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

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.”

About Fluitec

Fluitec, based in Jersey City, New Jersey is a privately-held company. It provides customers in over 40 countries leading edge technologies and knowledge to realize optimum reliability and productivity of their lubricating assets. In 2010, Fluitec received an award for the “Most Promising Innovation” from Cleantech in New York City. Their business has averaged 70% annual growth over the last four years. Fluitec has developed several technologies to monitor and maintain lubricants. One of their flagship condition monitoring products, the RULER(TM), is a patented technology to determine the remaining useful life of lubricants. They have also developed the industry’s leading, patent-pending lubricant varnish mitigation technology called Electrophysical Separation Process(TM).
