Sensor developed to support predictive maintenance of oil changes in factories [Registered]

Predictive maintenance of hard-to-access plants, no unnecessary oil changes, no unnecessary laboratory costs and less environmental impact – these are just some of the benefits offered by a new system that can monitor the condition of lubricating oils, hydraulic oils and other fluids in industrial installations without interrupting ongoing operations. The method was developed by engineers from the Centre for Mechatronics and Automation Technology in Saarbrücken in collaboration with project partners Saarland University and ZeMA. The compact sensor system is available as a portable unit or can be built into industrial plants, wind turbines and other machinery. The system, which…
