Power Plant Electro-Hydraulic Control (EHC)

Project Summary

Switching from a vegetable-based ester to a polyalkylene glycol EHC lubricant was proving challenging for a power plant because of the incompatibility of the two fluids. The replacement fluid  (polyalkylene glycol) needed to contain less than 3% total volume of the existing fluid at the end of the project.

A previous attempt to switch the two fluids had resulted in issues with critical equipment that were causing downtime and ongoing problems. Completed a very thorough removal of the existing fluid, exceeding the expectations of the power plants by fixing the existing equipment reliability problems, and meeting the project budget.
