Key oil condition monitoring technologies

Full Spectrum Holistic Core Technology

Tan Delta’s propriety Full Spectrum Holistic (FSH™) core technology is the power behind its sensors, providing them with exceptional performance and analysis capabilities. The oil analysis technology is a fusion of real time oil condition analysis and analytics working together to create a single sensor solution.

It analyses the electro-chemical properties of oil in real time – to an accuracy of 0.001% – resulting in a continuous stream of very high quality raw data. The intelligent analytics of this data provides deep insight on the real status of oil and equipment.

  • All failure modes, ware & contamination are detected, measured & interpreted
  • FSH™ is configurable for any oil or heavy fuel type in any application & environment
  • Further data analytics helps optimise equipment operating parameters (e.g., to reduce fuel consumption & emissions)

Real time oil condition monitoring means that analysis laboratories are not required for oil condition results.

Monitoring oil condition is simplified with Dynamic Maintenance Optimisation, which provides optimised maintenance schedules ensuring equipment oil retains peak quality.

Dynamic Maintenance Optimisation™

Knowing the actual condition of each piece of equipment and their unique maintenance requirements means you can easily determine exactly when equipment needs to be maintained. Dynamic Maintenance Optimisation™ (DMO) allows plant managers & operators to optimise maintenance schedules according to equipment need.

Identify optimal maintenance schedules for equipment accurately & safely. This enables more efficient advanced planning, increased intervals, reduced costs & less equipment down time.

Advanced Fault Detection™

Pre-emptive maintenance before damage is less costly than unexpected breakdowns. Advanced Fault Detection™ (AFD) alerts plant operators / managers at the first sign of any potential issue which may cause equipment damage or failure.

Using this advanced fault detection capability, plant managers can implement targeted, strategic interventions, reducing breakdowns and increasing equipment longevity.

Oil testing is required less with advanced fault detection to alert operators to potential issues before they occur.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is oil condition monitoring?

Oil condition monitoring (OCM), or used oil analysis (UOA), checks for contamination in oil and changes in its chemical content. It does this by measuring, monitoring and analysing changes in the lubricant. Data acquired is used for tracking oil quality degradation from new oil through to the end of its life so that potential issues that affect performance and reliability are identified in advance. This information can be used to build an effective maintenance programme.

What is oil health monitoring?

Oil health monitoring is usually called oil condition monitoring (OCM) and sometimes used oil analysis (UOE.) It is used in predictive maintenance schedules by using sensors that measure, monitor & analysing changes in lubricant and fuel oils for contamination and chemical content. It does this through the oil lifecycle.

Why monitor oil condition?

Monitoring the condition of oil in your equipment & machinery is necessary for plant managers to know the condition of their equipment. If there is any contamination to the oil, oil condition monitoring equipment alert operators so they can take corrective action, thereby preventing equipment failure.
