Hydraulic and lubrication oils become contaminated with solids and water through normal use, so as part of their reliability program, plant personnel usually pull samples periodically and send them to a laboratory for analysis. Although the reports are usually accurate, it often takes at least several days to get them back from a laboratory, and this delay can slow down the response time to critical contamination levels and contribute to system degradation.
Utilizing sensors and a PLC, the oil condition in critical hydraulic and lubrication oil systems can be continuously monitored in-situ, and when contamination levels above set parameters are detected, a filtration/dehydration system can come on automatically. Then, when contamination levels are reduced to pre-set parameters (particulate and water), the system automatically shuts off. This feature and technology is particularly useful in remote facilities where operators are not frequently available.
