Oil Quality Sensors

Complete Oil Quality Sensors

Poseidon Systems’s Trident Oil Quality Sensors are the most advanced online oil quality sensors available. The QW3100/QM3100 are the only oil quality sensors designed to replace the need for periodic oil sampling, as a critical tool of recent advancements within reliability programs. With the Trident QW3100/QM3100, operators are now able to know the current health of their oil, trend and alert reliability events, project RUL, and significantly reduce overall oil consumption as part of a condition based oil change program. 

We developed the Trident Oil Quality Sensors over 15 years in concert with the largest operators in the world. The advancements made in the last few years has allowed for its adoption as the standard for many oil monitoring reliability programs; eventually leading to millions of dollars in savings for our customers.

This new approach allows operators to truly identify root cause issues and prevent damage to equipment, well before it becomes a reliability problem; true preventative maintenance.

Periodic Oil Sampling vs. Online Oil Quality Sensors

Online oil quality sensors are able to detect and resolve issues much sooner than traditional offline oil lab analysis techniques. As can be seen as the example graph on the right, when issues arise, they will be sensed and operators are alarmed far more quickly, enabling actions that prevent further damage or asset failure.

About the Technology

Poseidon Systems has developed the most advanced oil condition sensor, the only commercially available Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) sensor. EIS goes beyond single point measurements to take multiple readings, across a sweep of frequencies, that correspond to critical properties other sensors are incapable of capturing. Only Poseidon Systems’s Trident QW3100 oil condition sensor is capable of replacing periodic oil sampling.

Proven Results

Extend Gearbox Oil Drain Intervals by Up to 2x

Within the many industries, operators are changing oil too often based on historical worse case scenarios and unreliable oil sampling. The industry is unsure about the real remaining useful life (RUL) of oil and is erring on the side of caution. Using Poseidon’s oil quality sensor, operators are able know the health of their oil real-time. This allows operators to monitor oil quality, forecast oil RUL, and optimize oil changes; in some cases operating with the same oil up to two times longer.
