Turbine engine oils for industrial gas turbines
AeroShell Turbine Engine Oils (ASTOs) can also be used beyond the aviation industry. Many manufacturers have been drawing on the designs of aero-derived engines to create land and sea turbines. That’s where AeroShell Turbine Engine Oils step in, able to withstand the gruelling conditions of these new engines where competitor oils could fail.
How AeroShell Turbine Engine Oils can be used in aero-derivative gas turbines
Some land and sea turbine engines are based on aero engines, which they retain the essential design elements from. That means they have similar lubrication requirements, so engine manufacturers approve the use of aircraft synthetic turbine oils in these engines.
An aero engine’s essential design features are its compact size and weight, but this places heavy demands on components and lubricants to ensure total reliability when facing the high temperatures that come with these engines.
Aviation-grade turbine oils have the characteristics required to provide the unit lubrication and cooling within these severe operating environments.
The ways AeroShell Turbine Engine Oils are used in land and marine industry
The use of aero-derivative gas turbines in industrial and marine applications has increased significantly throughout the world in recent years to meet operational flexibility and superior environmental performance requirements.
Such engines have found application in:
- Electrical power generation. Especially in remote areas like offshore oil platforms, or for peak load management;
- Large pumps and compressors. Especially in pipeline operation and petro-chemical process industries; and
- Marine propulsion.
