Application – Oil and lubricants play a critical role in the operation of many types of heavy plant machinery like engines (gas, diesel, biogas), turbines, compressors, transformers, gearboxes and hydraulic systems. The oil condition gives valuable insight in the running status of the plant asset. Many critical failures can be flagged by trends or step drops in parametric data from the oil report. It is therefore KEY that the plant engineer has this information as quickly as possible. Conventionally, the industry uses Oil laboratories to analyse the condition of the oil. Normally, this can take up to 5 days from sampling to receiving the oil report. We have developed an inline, real-time measurement system for oil condition monitoring to solve this problem to give our customers instant information on the oil condition of their high value plant asset.
Product Description – The Inline Oil Condition Analyser is a sophisticated process control system consisting of our Fieldkit system integrated with our MIRS-T sensor for real-time monitoring of oil condition. The fieldkit is purpose built for seamless, remote installation and is fully kitted with the MIRS-T oil condition sensor and several physical sensors such as temperature, pressure, flow-rate and leak. The system contains filtration, oil cooling and emergency shut down system and it can be configured with a pump to draw oil directly from a sump in the system or integrated in the main circulation system with controlled sampling using an electric valve.
