Lube oil is the life blood of a turbine generator. When the oil system fails the damage can be extensive. This paper discusses, losses experienced on lube oil systems, and ways to prevent them. It presents some of the statistics regarding losses in the last 5 years and discusses some common themes. It explores root causes, ways to improve the chances of avoiding these failures, and the best practices that have proven successful.
