Development of an in-line multi-parameter oil condition monitoring system including a novel oil corrosion sensor for bio-gas operated power generator engines (CONDIMON)
Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Oct 31, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

We will+ develop an integrated sensor system for in-line oil condition monitoring covering the most important oil condition parameters including corrosion (acidity) for industrial power generator engines or turbines;+ develop a novel sensor for the online measurement of corrosion effect as a direct indicator for the acidity of the engine oil which is a critical parameter in case of bio-fuel operated combustion engines;+ be able to ensure the protection of the machine by online monitoring, while allows the optimization of the oil change interval, leading to reduced maintenance costs in the long-term, especially in case of large oil fillings.The partners have a clear and proven technological concept for the development of the novel corrosion (acidity) sensor as well as the cooperation with leading oil sensor producer enables an in-depth insight to current market needs. The research on the novel corrosion sensor has started already 8 years ago, reaching by now a technological level allowing the step towards a commertial product.
