Lubricants and governor fluids for turbines - Minimum requirements - Part 1: Turbine oils TD for normal service
|Publication Date:||1 February 2010|
|ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products):||75.100|
This document specifies minimum requirements for oils for normal thermal stress (normal service) in turbines. Turbine oils are mineral oils containing additives designed to improve corrosion protection and ageing resistance. Where turbine oils are to provide enhanced resistance to wear, the requirements specified in Clause 4 also apply.
The turbine oils specified in this document are used in lubrication and, in some cases, control systems in steam turbines, gas turbines, in machines with electric drive or such driven by steam turbines (such as generators, compressors, pumps), and in drive mechanisms.
For turbine oils for high temperature service, the requirements according to DIN 51515-2 apply.
