Varnish and Oxidation Control

One of the primary failure modes for lubricants and hydraulic fluids serving in thermo-oxidative environments is the production of deposits commonly referred to as varnish. The impact that varnish deposits have on the lubrication system is application specific and, in most cases, can be harmful to your machines and reduce productivity.

Controlling varnish formation starts with maintaining contaminants and sump conditions. Keeping fluids in a clean environment to prevent varnish and preserving your machine’s lifecycle cna be found in this related article.
