Most users believe that turbine oils fail due to oxidation. Although turbine oils are subjected to plenty of thermal stress over their life, there are multiple mechanisms that causes these fluids to fail. This presentation will provide an overview of the various ways that turbine oils degrade, along with real world case studies and examples. Understanding failure modes however is beyond an academic exercise. Many of these modes of failure have known solutions. The presentation will also review solutions to remedy failure modes, ultimately leading to longer lasting, higher performing turbine oil.
