Detect changes, prevent failures

The OILCOL’s continuous and fast on-line indication of the oil color changes is the perfect instrument in this process as it allows for quick reaction to sudden changes in product quality and to perform preventative actions before any failures of the oil-using equipment occur.

Also using the OILCOL eliminates the need for traditional time consuming and costly laboratory samplings and analyzes.

Measure oil degradation

The OILCOL uses the ASTM D1500 color scale, which is used in a wide variety of petroleum products such as lubricating, hydraulic, heating, insulating and diesel fuel oils. The color value is used as a grade and quality measure in the refining process, as a means of confirming that the correct oil or fuel is being used in the particular application and also as a quality indicator of the oil contamination, oxidation, aging and degradation.

Accurate and easy to install

The compact and robust OILCOL displays the ASTM D1500 color value 0.5...8 in steps of 0.1 when the standard is in steps of 0.5. The OILCOL has a local display, 4...20 mA output and uses Modbus (RTU) communication. Maximum pressure rating is 20 bar and the temperature range is from -20...+70 °C. Installation is easy and each OILCOL is individually calibrated to ensure the best possible accuracy.
