  1. Real-time maintenance
  2. Oil quality

Monitor oil quality in real time

Oil systems are found on nearly all industrial machines. Whether the oil is used to lubricate rotating components or to transfer hydraulic energy, maintaining a contaminate-free oil supply is necessary for trouble free operation.

Oil quality sensors monitor oil degradation and moisture ingress in real time, extending machine availability and performance.  Premature time-based oil changes are expensive and can be replaced by condition-based oil changes, improving machine performance and reducing operating costs. Equipment is protected from damage due to contaminated oil.  Real-time insight of developing mechanical issues can be quickly identified and corrected before primary, secondary or catastrophic damage occurs.

OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is the gold standard for measuring manufacturing productivity. Simply put – it identifies the percentage of manufacturing time that is truly productive.

Availability and performance are improved through real-time oil condition monitoring.

  • Safeguard machinery from damage
  • Increase productivity and reliability
  • Extend intervals between oil changes
  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Reduce waste oil disposal costs
  • Improve total cost of ownership of equipment
