Micron Scientific has recently released the new Oil Advantage Industrial.   The Oil Advantage Industrial, manufactured by VSI Inc, monitors oil condition in real-time. It is used to monitor lubrication, hydraulic and transformer oils in industrial machinery. The monitoring system monitors oil conductivity, polarity, temperature and contamination from water, molecular metallic particulates and soot. For diesel engines, fuel contamination is also available. Using the conductivity and polarity measurements other attributes such as TAN and IR oxidation are determined.

Features and advantages of the oil condition monitor include:

  • The oil condition monitor prevents catastrophic damage to machinery due to contaminated oil
  • The oil condition monitor also prevents track degradation of oil condition as it occurs
  • Safely extend oil change intervals
  • Avoid machinery downtime due to damage from poor oil quality
  • The Oil Advantage Industrial includes a robust, metal housing with a threaded mechanical interface for keeping the sensor in constant contact with the oil
  • The oil condition data is made available via RS232, RS485 (DNP3 for SCADA compatibility), 0-5 V DC, current loop and local LED oil condition display
  • Data telemetry devices and software are available for remote installations on the oil condition monitor
