HILCO Anti-Static Cartridges/Elements Prevent Varnish build up in Lube Oil Systems

Static discharge is a common problem in the lubricating oil systems of today’s turbo-machinery. Type II lubricant base stocks exhibit very low fluid conductivity. As a result, static charges can build on the non-conductive components of the lube oil system, such as the filter elements. When a sufficient charge is accumulated, static discharge occurs between two points of differing potentials. Over time static discharge contributes to oil degradation and varnish build up throughout the system.

Hilco PH-CGJ style filter elements incorporate conductive fibers which are co-pleated in between two layers of hi performance microglass filter media. As a result the Hilco anti-static filter element dissipates static charge build up before discharge can occur. The Hilco CGJ style elements are available in every standard Hilco media grade code. Hilco offers full laboratory services and can verify the conductivity of a user’s oil if a static discharge problem is suspected.
