In August, Industrial Fluid Management was called out to perform a varnish removal on a rotary screw compressor that was having to be shut down periodically due to increased bearing temperatures as high as 260 degrees F. IFM performed a chemical cleaning and installed kidney loop filtration in order to remove the varnish from the system. By removing the varnish and related issues to the compressor, Cornerstone was able to reduce the bearing temperature by 50 degrees F.
