Online quality measurement

Published:  03 July, 2007

It is now possible to monitor the quality of compressed air by online measurement of the residual oil content.

Beko has introduced an oil control measuring system. Oil Control enables permanent monitoring of the oil content of the compressed air flow, either centrally or at individual points. The system measures down to 0.001 mg/m3 and is therefore suitable for use with the new food industry guidelines, as well as for medical and other critical applications.

The sensitivity of the sensor guarantees an early detection of any increase in the oil content, for example caused by failed filters. Consequential damage to machinery and products is thus successfully prevented, and the production medium 'compressed air' offers a greater level of safety. Also, you no longer need to take samples and wait for the results of the laboratory analysis.

Beko says the purchase costs of an Oil Control Monitoring System is easily recouped and compared with the costs of production standstill this device is invaluable.
