Varnish Mitigation Unit

POA

The design of the Varnish Mitigation Units VMU answers to condition mineral oils. It is also easy to use. They are particularly effective at removing oil ageing products (varnish) from mineral oils.

What is varnish?

Varnish takes the form of insoluble oil ageing products which settle in the tank, in valves or in bearings. These can be non-filterable gels or solid paint type deposits. With the VMU series, the removal of varnish is on the basis of absorption on an active surface. Therefore, the VMU series answer to an offline utilisation.Features:
  • The removal of solid or gel-type oil ageing products
  • An increase of the operating reliability of the system happens, thanks to fewer deposits in hydraulic valves
  • Also, an increase in the oil service life
  • Available as a complete unit for retrofitting to existing systems, as well as a modular system for new systems

FAQs

  • What is the Varnish Mitigation Unit (VMU)?

    The VMU conditions mineral oil. It is particularly effective at removing oil ageing products such as varnish.

    Varnish Mitigation Unit

    Varnish is an insoluble oil ageing product that settles in the tank, in valves or in bearings. It can take the form of a non-filterable gel or solid paint-like deposit.

    What is the VMU’s modus operandi?

    The offline VMU removes varnish based on adsorption on an active surface.

    What is a major benefit of using the VMU?

    A major benefit of using the VMU is increased oil service life.
