Use Case Example – FluidInspectIR Inline – Gas Engine
The power of real-time monitoring of rapid changes in parametric data due to running regime.
Left is a data plot for nitration, oxidation, TAN and TBN for a gas engine.
The engine undergoes continuous ON/OFF cycling dictated by power demand and this results in some fast degradation mechanisms.
Having ‘hourly’ data points allows the customer to target ‘top-ups’ of fresh oil to offset these rapid degadation changes. The top-ups produce the step function shift seen on the SPC charts and drop in nitration, oxidation and TAN and increase in TBN.
The customer is in complete control of their lurbication data and has the comfort of knowing when the warning or fault levels will be breached for the oil – right down to the hour!
