Could it be that ammonia is heavily contaminated with water?
test ammonia for water.
Assume new oil being added is all ok as well.
Has there been any issues with plant that you know off like heat exchangers leaking water into system.

Thanks for your reply Ranger 1 , I guess it was the adjustment of balance pressure line for the tx valve in SOC line

Ahmed, are you referring to liquid injection set up to control oil & discharge temperature.
If to much liquid injection could flood causing oil foaming.
