Over 50% of all machine component failures are due to water and particulate contamination. Manufacturing plants in North America spend over $4 billion every year repairing and replacing such equipment. It is vital that manufacturing facilities have a cost-effective way to remove this contamination and maintain acceptable fluid cleanliness levels. Nelson Oil Company offers a variety of services to accomplish this.


Fluid Maintenance

By taking advantage of our Fluid Management Program, you will be assured of compliance with ISO cleanliness code requirements. Our portable FCL Filter Cart will dramatically extend the effective life of all your fluids.

We can confirm your ISO cleanliness codes on-site with our Laser Particle Counter. Utilizing our VAC-U-DRY Vacuum Dehydrator we can remove dissolved water and gasses from fluids contaminated with water.


Varnish Mitigation

Varnish mitigation in large-frame gas and steam turbines continues to play a critical role in equipment reliability. Hy-Pro’s Soluble Varnish Removal absorbs dissolved and suspended oil degradation products – the root cause of varnish.
