0.01% Oil Quality Change Detection!!!

Equipment Condition Monitoring that Enables Preventative Maintenance and Reduces Operating Costs

The OQSx-G2 sensor is the world’s most precise oil condition monitoring sensor. Its real time oil condition analysis is so accurate and sensitive that it will immediately alert equipment operators to the earliest indications of a problem; well before any material equipment damage. This vital and reliable information is delivered to operators and managers instantly such that preventative maintenance can be actioned and expensive equipment damage and ultimately breakdowns avoided.

This exceptional functionality is achieved using Tan Delta’s unique next generation FSH™ core technology which is integrated in every OQSx-G2 sensor. This innovative and proven technology enables real-time, ultra-accurate, continuous analysis of any oil type, working in any application, from the largest engine or gearbox to turbines and hydraulics, with even the most subtle condition change of as little as 0.01% instantly detected and reported

Unlike other equipment monitoring systems such as vibration or particle counters which are only triggered by symptoms caused after significant damage is well underway and thus repair will already be costly, the OQSx-G2 sensitivity detects and reports trace changes in oil condition which characterize the earliest stages of equipment issues – typically before damage has occurred and thus the issue can be quickly diagnosed and corrected saving considerable cost. 

In addition to early detection of equipment issues OQSx-G2 delivers a broad range of additional benefits that include safely extending maintenance intervals through identification of when equipment needs maintenance rather than time-based schedules and the precise identification of oil end of life and thus a significant reduction in oil usage. In the final analysis, equipment operators see a significant reduction in immediate and long-term equipment operating costs coupled with increased reliability and extended equipment life.

The OQSx-G2 sensor is easy to install on any equipment operating in any environment and with any oil type. And with a typical investment pay back of well under 6 months and a maintenance free life of over 5 years, the financial rational is clear.

Future-Proofing Asset Monitoring at Port…

The infrastructure-heavy operation at seaport, marine and inter-modal terminals, face increasing demand for efficient and cost-effective operation. Advanced equipment and technology underpins port performance, and productivity hinges upon robust asset management.

The majority of port infrastructure (including Container Cranes, Straddle Carriers, Shiploaders and Hoppers) have a useful economic life of up to 50 years, however an increasing portfolio of ageing and expensive assets over time leads to an increase in exposure to business risk. Research suggests that issues resulting from the application of inadequate or incorrect maintenance procedures cause roughly 25% of the total cost of equipment damage and that satisfying short-term operational needs can lead to major asset downtime due to unplanned maintenance and catastrophic failure. 

Increasing global trade is increasing the demand for more infrastructure to combat port congestion problems. Subsequently there has been an increasing industry focus on equipment lifecycle management, and real-time condition monitoring and maintenance strategies as part of a wider approach to the managing of an entire portfolio of assets. 

Oil condition monitoring plays a fundamental role in total asset management. Accurate, high quality oil condition analysis provides a deep insight into the health and status of port equipment. Contamination can quickly lead to oil losing its lubrication properties and equipment damage. Small unseen issues, which if left to develop will cause a major breakdown, are reflected in changes in oil condition, and as oil condition degrades with use, you can pin-point the exact time for maintenance, extending intervals without risk.

Tan Delta sensors were fitted to the primary hydraulic systems of Container Cranes in a busy South African port. An operator panel was installed in each, providing a simple traffic light condition status, whilst live data was streamed back to the maintenance centre. The data enabled the port to extend the intervals between servicing thus reducing direct operating costs, also providing reassurance that in the event of an unexpected issue, an alert would be provided, and action taken in a planned and controlled manner before any equipment damage had occurred. 

“Since the installation we have seen a significant reduction of 32% in our oil consumption. We were replacing our oil prematurely and have since been able to streamline our maintenance across the whole port. With a total project payback of 6 months this technology forms a crucial part of our asset management strategy, and has helped provide complete visibility, tracking and actionable predictive insights across the port”. – Port Operations Manager, South Africa.

Industrial IoT for Motor Analysis (Mechanical & Electrical)

MCMMotors drive the industry and provide convenience in our everyday life. These motors are used in various areas of industry all over the world. However, if motors are not maintained properly they can fail. Failure will interrupt production, productivity, affect revenue, energy efficiency, product quality and could result in safety hazards. This invariably could influence increases in cost.

The Internet of Things (IoT) Motor Diagnosis System accurately diagnose the state of equipment in real time and automatically notifies you of the problem and solution.

The IoT Motor Diagnosis System analyzes the voltage and current signal supplied to the motor. To do this you only need to connect a sensor between the motor and the motor distribution board. The diagnosis system analyses the current state of the motor and makes estimations of the motor health. The system runs a comparison analysis between the measured data from the motor and that of the line motor database. It picks up on even the slightest difference and analyses it carefully to diagnose the abnormalities. The system then gives a dense notice of the possible failure in real time.

The system has a periodic notification function which evaluates the performance of the motor and periodically informs you of possible maintenance risks and estimated time to replace parts. The system is installed in the Motor Control Panel and the diagnostic results are analyzed automatically. The IoT Motor Diagnosis System is easy to use even if you’re not an expert. It can conveniently be managed remotely over a network as well.

The IoT Motor Diagnosis System detects both electrical faults and mechanical faults of various types of industrial equipment, driven by a three-phase AC electric motor. Additionally, the system is also capable of detecting abnormalities of the connecting cable and terminal blocks, changes in the load and supply. Hence the system allows you to see in real time whether the motor is performing at its optimum.

Motors that consume the most power in the industrial field often run at low efficiency during long-term operations. If the efficiency of such motors is managed properly it can save a considerable amount of energy consumption which could impact on electricity use.

The IoT Motor Diagnosis System has a built-in high-performance power quality measurement function for electrical signal analysis. It is an integrated solution that saves energy.

Correctly timed maintenance and repair actions, initiated by the diagnosis system allows a motor to last longer at the lowest cost without suffering from quality problems, accidents or sudden motor failures.

If you take advantage of the IoT Motor Diagnosis System you can experience a more efficient and safer plant environment with a smaller impact on your maintenance budget.

Watch how easy it is to implement the IoT Motor Diagnosis System!
