It is a fact that “Unplanned downtime can represent a cost to the business equivalent to 1 to 3% of annual revenue or potentially 30 to 40% of profits” therefore any preventative measures put in place must add value.
The Tan Delta oil quality sensor, is a live, highly flexible and cost effective condition based monitoring solution.
Designed to be permanently mounted within any lubrication system and on any type of machine.
It is over 60 times more sensitive to oil contamination that any other dielectric constant measuring sensor, the Oil Quality Sensor provides real-time monitoring of water ingress and oxidation levels.
Designed and developed to the highest standards, delivering accurate real time monitoring of the condition of any lubricating oil.
Based on a patented method, the Tan Delta Oil Quality Sensor gives you a true 360 degree view of how your oil is performing.
While it is true that the use of ISO11171 particle counters is best practice when monitoring lubrication and hydraulic fluids, it is still possible to have an oil filtered to an acceptable NAS class and still be corrosive and thus be damaging to the system due to high acid levels or package breakdown and lower viscosity levels.
The Tan Delta Oil Quality Sensor opens up a whole new world of opportunity to help organisations to reduce waste, save money and avoid losing valuable time in carrying out un-necessary work.
Oil Quality Display & Logger
Engineered to deliver outstanding performance, the robust IP67 rated enclosure delivers a straight forward and effective way to display the real time condition of your oil.
Developed to work in tandem with the Oil Quality Sensor, the display unit is international certified and is ideally suited for the majority of commercial and industrial environments.
How It Works
Traditionally, dielectric sensors are used to measure the capacitance of the oil, which changes as the oil wears.
As a result of the increased sensitivity, the Tan Delta Oil Quality Sensor can detect the very early stages of deterioration or damage to the oil, allowing timely planning of any intervention that may be needed.
A key benefit of the Tan Delta Oil Quality Sensor is the stability of the readings at different temperatures.
All of this gives you total visibility of how your oil and therefore your critical equipment is performing.
