Water is a common contaminant in industrial oils. Water contamination deteriorates the performance of the oil, be it used for lubrication, cooling, insulation or other purposes. High moisture content increases the risk of corrosion, overheating, machine malfunction and other problems and can ultimately lead to costly failure and unscheduled downtime. Monitoring the oil for moisture is a simple way of improving the reliability of industrial machinery and equipment. With time, substantial savings in maintenance costs can be achieved.
On-line water activity measurement ensures reliable performance of equipment at all times. Time consuming sampling and laboratory analysis are no longer needed. This not only reduces the risk of human induced error but also provides cost savings in equipment and chemicals.
