boiler feed pumps
Boiler Feed Pumps feed a steam generator such as a boiler or a nuclear reactor with condensate water. All boiler feed pumps are centrifugal pumps, which must function at their optimum to maintain the right amount of steam in the turbine. Ensuring dry oil is the key to having a smooth operation and a long lifetime of equipment, and while many plant operators change the oil frequently there may be a better way.
If the boiler feed pump oil is not kept dry and clean, you risk very expensive repairs or replacements, and downtime of the plant. Keeping the oil clean and dry can offer the possibility to extend the oil life by 3-4 times longer than expected.

When you install a CJC® Oil Filtration solution on your boiler feed pump, you get an oil filter with excellent water removal characteristics, and the highest dirt capacity suitable for the normal service intervals, so that you do not need to service the filter or change the oil untimely. Technically, CJC® is known for keeping oil dry, clean, and without oxidation residues, which is documented over many years and in many power station installations. CJC® Oil Filtration solutions are installed in many power plants worldwide, and when you choose CJC® Oil Filters, you ensure a long lifetime of the feed pump and you avoid unplanned breakdowns. And you can even monitor from remote the condition of your system using the Oil Contamination Monitor (OCM).
