+ 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.
