Here's How to Outsmart Varnish

Varnish has a way of sneaking up on you, gradually sticking to valves, coolers and other critical components as lubricants slowly degrade under extreme operating conditions. The result is unproductive downtime, costly maintenance and even equipment failure if not treated. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

See how GST Advantage™ turbine oils formulated with VARTECH® Technology can help stop varnish from forming and keep your equipment productively online and running smoothly.
