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.
