When commissioning a new asset, or returning an existing system back online after a maintenance period, it is important to install 100 mesh screen strainers in the lube oil bearing feeds.

  • Installing these ‘paddle screens’ensures that no large particles can make their way into the bearings.
  • When we are conducting service roles, this is our last step, and we place the strainers upstream of the bearing, temporarily replacing the existing gasket.
  • The screens we use are professionally made using high quality gasket material and 100 mesh stainless wire with has an aperture of 150 microns.
  • We have used these on MAN Turbo, Toshiba, Siemens , GE, Howden, Solar, and many other rotational assets with great results.
