Lube oil

Lube oils for gas turbines and diesel engines are continuously being contaminated with condensed water, the finest metal particles and decomposition products. Lube oils must be purified on a continuous basis to prevent any signs of wear on engines and thus ensure maximum availability of the equipment. GEA treatment plants are not only reliable and efficient, they are also designed in such a way that the robust construction fully complies with the requirements of the oil field industry.

Protects the engine and saves disposal costs

GEA lube oil treatment plants are equipped with a self-cleaning separator. It cleans and removes water from the lube oil in the bypass flow and reliably removes any unwanted materials. This not only counteracts the wear of sensitive engine parts but also increases the service life of the oil so that purchasing and disposal costs for operating equipment are reduced accordingly.

High-performance and robust around the clock

Our centrifuges operate at a high level of g-force and thus achieve the greatest level of separation accuracy even at high throughput rates of up to 80 cubic meters per hour. Finally, thanks to the innovative sensor system for the fully automatic control of the oil treatment process, they are perfectly designed for unsupervised continuous operation. Customers benefit from additional characteristics of our separators such as a high level of robustness, low energy requirements and a space-saving design.
