Lubrication Filtration and Purification

Learning objectives

  • Identify the two most common types of lube oil contamination found in power plant lubricating oil systems
  • Explain the effect contamination has on the lubricating oil and the equipment it serves
  • Describe how mechanical filtration removes contaminants from lubricating oil systems
  • Discuss the basic procedure for cleaning a permanent, in-line filter
  • Explain how each of the following oil purification methods removes contaminants from lubricating oil: centrifugal purification, coalescence purification, and vacuum dehydration

Course overview

A contaminant-free lubricant provides the best protection for equipment. Understanding lubrication filtration and purification is important to ensure a lubricant retains its quality and continues to protect the equipment it serves.

The Lubricant Filtration and Purification training course explains how to use mechanical filters and lube oil purifiers to keep lubrication oil contaminant free. It also describes methods to filter and purify lubricating oil in a power plant. This online training course includes:

  • Water and solids contamination
  • Mechanical filtration
  • Oil purification

Lubricant Filtration and Purification is part of the Lubrication training series.
