HYDAC Lab HLB 1400 oil condition sensor for Industry 4.0

Saturday, 01 July, 2017 | Supplied by: HYDAC International


One of the advantages of Industry 4.0 is the combining of cutting-edge information and communication technology into systems that are able to predict failure and ensure the wellbeing of a system. With oil-driven systems (eg, hydraulic or lubrication systems), oil analysis is key to predicting failure of the system. Oil samples are usually gathered in an oil sample bottle and sent to a lab for analysis. Now online sensors are available that are able to gather key data on oil condition and make this information available immediately to higher level systems.

The HYDAC Lab HLB 1400 is a multifunctional sensor for online condition monitoring of oils. The user is informed in real time of changes in the fluids and can take immediate action in the case of deteriorating operating conditions. Assertions can be made about the condition of the oil, such as ageing or mixing with other fluids, on the basis of the measured values for the relative change in conductivity of the oil, the saturation level and the temperature.
