Oil Monitoring In The Paper Industry
In the production of printing paper, it is important to be able to precisely determine the water concentration in lubricating oils. One unique method uses capacitative humidity sensors to detect the water content of various oils. Through continuous monitoring of the moisture content of the oil, maintenance work and oil changes can be optimized, leaks can be identified and breakdowns can be prevented. This paper explains how installation of this type of moisture measurement can help ensure the correct viscosity and lubrication ability of the oil to avoid costly repairs and the associated interruptions to production.
