HUNGARY - 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).

Project reference: 606080

From 2013-11-01 to 2015-10-31

Status: Execution

Total cost: EUR 1 217 446

EU contribution: EUR 908 000

Objective : 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.
