Varnish treatment units

The presence of particles and water in oil as well as temperature lead to oxidation and ultimately result in a varnish.

With the MPC method (Membrane Patch Colorimetry) it can be established in the laboratory whether the installation is subject to a potential varnish risk. A value of ΔE lower than 15 is considered good, which over 40 is considered critical and requires an oil filtration intervention. The varnish units can absorb the particles contained in a solution through a resin filter and filter the already exited sub-micron particles from the solution.
