Oil provides several functions in the circulating system of a gas turbine-centrifugal compressor. It cools, dampens, flushes, lubricates, resists corrosion, seals, and transmits power. Uncontrolled accumulation of contaminants in the oil can impair these functions, can cause excessive wear, deterioration, malfunction, and failure of system components, and can create safety hazards for the equipment and its environment.
