Oil condition sensors detect the condition of fluids in real time

Oil condition sensors detect the condition of fluids in real time

Oil condition sensors detect the condition of fluids in real time and allow oil changes when necessary

The demand for effective solutions to monitor hydraulic and lubricant systems is constantly increasing. Oil condition – or the result of the natural aging of the substance, decomposition of additives and contamination by foreign particles – is therefore the significant factor in determining the optimal point in time for an oil change. Changing the fluid too early generates unnecessary costs; changing it too late increases wear within the system and can lead to component failures and therefore even higher costs.

OCS oil condition sensors from Stauff determine the actual condition of hydraulic fluids and lubricating oils in real time, subject to all the criteria mentioned above. The sensors enable service and maintenance personnel and production managers to carry out complex and cost-intensive oil changes as and when required by the actual condition of the fluid, and not based on speculation or statistical maintenance schedules. This increases the availability and productivity of machinery and systems, reduces potential environmental pollution and reduces operating and maintenance costs for the system throughout its entire operating life.

OCS oil condition sensors are designed for permanent installation in hydraulic and lubricating oil systems and, thanks to their robust construction and stainless steel housings, can even be used under extreme conditions with temperatures from -20 °C to +120 °C. They are suitable for use at operating pressures of up to 20 bar.

The optional OCD oil condition display unit shows the values measured by the sensor using a multi-segment LED indicator, which makes the oil condition apparent at a glance and without any connection to a PC. The display unit also has integrated measurement value memory, from which the data can be subsequently transferred for assessment via USB.

Walter Stauffenberg GmbH & Co. KG was founded in the 1950s in Werdohl, in the German province of North Rhine-Westphalia, and was initially a contract turning shop. Today the company operates under the trade name STAUFF, developing, producing and marketing fluid technology components for use in plant construction and mechanical engineering. In the fields of tube, pipe and hose clamps, measuring technology and hydraulic filtration, STAUFF is one of the world’s leading organisations in a growing industrial segment.

Meanwhile, more than 1200 employees (12/2011) in 16 companies generate an annual turnover of more than EUR 180 million (12/2011) worldwide.
