SYSTEM CLEANING SERVICES

Why put clean oil in a dirty system? Use Legacy’s TurboFlush services to make sure your systems avoid premature wear and failures due to contamination.

Lubrication systems are constructed and operate in dirty environments, which is why equipment manufacturers have specifications and procedures for cleaning the system prior to start-up. This ensures that built-in contaminants don’t cause premature failure and reduce the effective life of the machine. Legacy’s TurboFlush services meet or exceed these OEM specifications and ensure you maximize your equipment life and reduce the chance of unplanned outages.

TurboFlush Benefits:

  • Meets or exceeds OEM system cleanliness specifications
  • Reduces unschedules downtime and forced outages
  • Helps achieve optimal equipment life
  • Increases new fluid life

TurboFlush Services Include:

Hydroblasting

Hydroblasting utilizes extremely high pressures of water or oil to blast contamination and deposits from the internal surfaces of piping.

Service Highlights:

  • Cleans the entire interior circumference of the drain and feed line piping
  • Reduces overall time to commission equipment
  • Proven effective on vintage and new equipment
  • Managed by professional project managers

Tank and Reservoir Decontamination

Circulating system tanks and reservoirs are designed as a first line of defense against contaminants in your fluid system. Regularly cleaning these systems is critical for maintaining fluid system reliability.

Service Highlights:

  • Removes sludge and old oil deposits
  • Increases life of new fluids on oil changes
  • Incorporates inspection of reservoir walls and internal piping
  • Includes confined space entry by qualified personnel
  • Can be combined with other services for maximjum effect

Chemical Cleaning

Chemical Cleaning is a specialty process that uses acids and passivation agents to remove corrosion and rust from the internals of new and old piping. This process is used to prepare metal surfaces prior to a high velocity oil flush and can drastically reduce flushing times on old systems.

Service Highlights:

  • Returns corroded metal to like-new finish
  • Shortens flushing times on old and corroded systems
  • Developed with stainless steel systems and pumps
  • Managed by professional project managers
  • Turnkey process includes:
    • Degreasing of system
    • Acid flushing
    • System passivation
    • Neutralization

High Velocity Oil Flushing

High Velocity Oil Flushing is an industry best practice for meeting OEM oil system cleanliness specifications. Using auxiliary pumps and jumpers to by-pass critical components of a lubricating system, the process rapidly removes contaminants from fluid systems.

High Velocity Flushing is a turnkey service managed by professional project managers with expertise on steam and combustion turbines, compressors, engines, and hydraulics. Legacy’s portable/modular flushing skids (capable of 50-4,000 GPM) are designed for travel and tight spots in plants.

Service Highlights:

  • Removes contaminants from fluid systems rapidly
  • Reduces flushing time compared to system pumps
  • Includes detailed project books and post project engineering reports
  • Can include chemicals to remove varnish and sludge deposits
