This was my first outage working with PetrolinkUSA and I found them to be professional, prompt, hardworking and knowledgeable. I really appreciate the hard work and speed to which they completed the cleaning of our lube oil tanks. I look forward to working with them in the near future.

Featured Case Study

Power Plant Electro-Hydraulic Control (EHC) Fluid Swap

Visual comparison of oil before and after flushing

Switching from a vegetable based ester to a polyalkylene glycol EHC lubricant was proving challenging for a power plant because of the incompatibility of the two fluids. The replacement fluid (polyalkylene glycol) needed to contain less than 3% total volume of the existing fluid at the end of the project.

A previous attempt to switch the two fluids had resulted in issues with critical equipment that were causing downtime and on-going problems. PetrolinkUSA completed a very thorough removal of the existing fluid, exceeding the power plants expectations, fixing the existing equipment reliability problems, and meeting the project budget.
