Polytron solved a problem of overheating gearbox in a power plant.
Public Power Corporation, Greece
Steam Electric Station Units I-II-III
Equipment: Gearbox in Condenser Pump
Polytron Metal Treatment Concentrate (MTC)
Gearbox of a Condenser Pump was overheating above shutdown temperature, due to very high ambient temperature, so compressed air was used to cool it down requiring editional air compressor operating continuously, which increased the operational cost.
The Polytron Solution
Polytron MTC was applied to the gear oil in the gearbox, resulting in operating temperature dropping down by 4 to 5 0C which was enough to avoid the need for compressed air.
“We are very pleased with the performance of Polytron MTC. We decided to apply Polytron Lubrication Technology gradually in all our equipment.” Said assistant engineer, Mr. Peter Manikas.
