STEALTH EHC DRY GAS BLANKETING SYSTEM REMOVES WATER FOR FILL4LIFE FLUID

Updated: Aug 4, 2022

Maximizing Asset Life Through Technology


REMOVE WATER & EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR FLUID


FILL4LIFE PHOSPATE ESTER | KEEP YOUR FLUID CLEAN AND DRY

Hydrolysis is the main degradation pathway in phosphate ester systems. Because phosphate esters are hydroscopic, moisture control is a critical step in phosphate ester maintenance. Stealth EHCTM uses patented technology that removes moisture from phosphate ester fluids by introducing a steady stream of clean, dry air in the reservoir. This enhances reservoir breathing systems by actively and continuously purging and dehydrating the reservoir head space and removing water from the fluid.



STEALTH EHC BENEFITS

  • Removes dissolved moisture in fluid

  • Prevents the formation of corrosion in the reservoir

  • Eliminates the need to replace costly desiccant style breathers

  • Reduces acid formation by removing water

  • Minimizes the potential for particulate or water ingression through reservoir access points

  • Approved by GE Energy (Ref: GEK 4637f)

  • Uses no electricity, only compressed air. No moving parts.

  • Enables a Fill4Life Phosphate Ester Fluid





Stealth EHC uses the principle of mass transfer. When the humidity of the fluid is greater than that of the air (headspace), water molecules transfer to the dry air and the fluid becomes dry.





THE RESULTS ARE CLEAR…

STEALTH EHC + ENDURE IX

System cleanliness is restored with no outage requirements. Fluitec provides Stealth EHC to remove existing moisture and prevent any further water contamination, Endure IX to bring the fluid acidity back to ideal conditions.


HOW IT WORKS:

Our Stealth EHC system blankets your reservoir head space with our super-dry clean air. A low pressure air purge in the head space accomplishes two important tasks simultaneously: It extracts moisture from the fluid while excluding other contaminants from getting in the system. The result is exceptionally clean, dry fluid. The system is inexpensive to install, has no moving parts or electrical connections, and requires no maintenance. Quite simply, the Stealth EHC is the highest value contamination control technology you will install at your plant


ENDURE IX

Fluitec provides the optimum blend of media to target specific contaminants. There are media that specifically remove stronger acids, ones that remove weak acids (phenolic alcohols and varnish-forming molecules) and media that removes dissolved metals from the fluid. As the fluid makes contact with the blended Endure IX media the process of physisorption removes the contaminants. It is recommended to install Stealth EHC along with the Endure IX for optimum performance.
