While conventional approaches require taking a small sample of the oil and then analysing it, the sensor provides continuous monitoring in situ of the entire lubricant oil volume, providing alert warning of high levels of water content that could damage the machine. As well as providing advance warnings of problems, it can also be used to ensure that separators, filters and driers are only running when actually needed. The sensor is available with an associated terminal box. The terminal box provides power to the sensor, links the sensor to any external condition monitoring system, gives alarms and provides a local visual indication of the water level in the oil and the temperature.
Anywhere where there is lube oil, gear box oil, hydraulic oil, transformer oil or diesel oil, there is a potential application of our WIO sensors:
