New generation of oil condition monitoring technology

Third Quarter 2021 Other technologies

Parker Hannifin’s innovative oil condition monitoring technology helps marine operators reduce downtime, reduce costs and protect assets. The DIGI Plus offers rapid on-site and on-board oil condition monitoring to improve productivity and increase uptime for the marine industry and has become a go-to solution for the marine sector to monitor oil condition. The DIGI Plus combined test cell enables operators quickly and easily to test for water in oil and for the base number of oil samples. It also helps users to detect out-of-spec oils and lubricants and identify potential problems before they become critical.

The DIGI Plus has a built-in test memory for recording up to 50 individual test results as part of a pre-programmed test plan. Test results are downloaded using a USB cable and can then be used as part of a trend analysis programme.

Developed for challenging conditions, the DIGI Plus features an improved backlit colour display that provides better visibility, especially in poor light conditions. This simplifies identification of alarm conditions and pass or fail results, whilst also guiding the user through important test steps such as cell cleaning. The cell has been constructed from lightweight glass reinforced plastic with non-slip twist grips and aims to reduce handling fatigue during testing.

The DIGI Plus combined test cell offers both water-in-oil and base number testing and comes as part of Parker’s DIGI Plus field test kit, which also incorporates three other test measurements: acid number; insoluble loading and basic viscosity.
