Oil Condition Monitoring
On-line Fluid/Oil Monitoring
Impact Technologies has developed a fully integrated in-line/online fluid quality sensing technology for use in monitoring a wide variety of lubrication and hydraulic systems. The fluid quality sensor autonomously monitors overall oil fluid health using multiple sensing technologies that combine to provide strong diagnostic abilities. The patented backbone sensing technology uses broadband AC impedance measurements to determine changes in the fluid’s
This technology has been applied to a number of applications, with different contaminants and degradation modes:
A number of real-time off-board communication methods (including serial, analog, digital, Modbus and CAN) have been implemented for different customers.
Impact Sensors, LLC, is the licensed dealer of Impact's customizable line of fluid quality sensors. The original products within the Impact Sensors sensor family focus on fluids for mobility applications, such as engine oils within the automotive industry. Fluid contaminants that are detected are customized depending on specific application. For example, Impact Sensors’ “oil quality” sensor has been designed to determine soot, moisture/water and fuel in the lubrication oil for diesel engine applications.
Automotive Industry members, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Large customers (e.g. asset owners/equipment fleets), and distributors interested in discussing adaptation of this technology for their specific machinery, equipment and fluid health monitoring applications are encouraged to contact Impact Sesnors.
