Online Condition Monitoring
Monitoring the cleanliness of hydraulic system oil is primordial for the system’s lifetime and efficiency. There are 3 different ways to proceed to condition monitoring system:
- Off site: sending an oil bottle sample to a lab
- On site: do the analysis on-site
- Online: proceed with a real time monitoring system in place, also called Condition Based Monitoring
This online condition monitoring system allows us to have a proactive behaviour regarding oil cleanliness. Indeed, a real time and online condition monitoring is easier, quicker and more efficient than the offsite and on site methods.
With the remote condition monitoring, we can define the parameters for measuring, then define the alarm limits for having a tailor-suit monitor and measure system than will give the user all the data that he needs to take the adequate corrective actions.
Online condition monitoring aims for a continuous improvement of the machine and focus first on the value, with an improvement of reliability and of performance measures.
