Stop waiting for Varnish to build up downtime

Many reliability engineers see varnish buildup as a way of life that can only be addressed after operating problems occur. Varnish-related issues can arise quickly, and when they do, the extra costs associated with fixing them have a similar trajectory. More than ever, reliability engineers need to recognize varnish as a problem that can only be solved cost-effectively before it becomes one. And that means finding a proactive solution to the problem—one that starts with careful system preparation for a properly chosen turbine oil that can help prevent varnish from forming in the first place.
