Marine and offshore equipment are operated in highly abrasive and harsh conditions. For safety reasons strategic vessel equipment in the business have a fixed five-year dry docking interval. If approved propulsion condition monitoring requirements are met, the class requirement can be waived. Using the Kytola Oilan A4 water in oil analyzer the service interval can be extended by up to two years, thus creating remarkable savings in both avoided downtime and maintenance costs.

One of the main advantages is that whereas most analyzers measure humidity only up to the saturation point, the Kytola Oilan A4 streches way beyond this. As commonly known, once the saturation point is reached, humidity transforms to highly damageable free water. In worst cases salty sea water may enter the process and cause corrosion and premature oil aging. Oilan A4 is able to measure free water and react even to minor changes in the oil. Hundreds of sold Kytola Oilan A4's operating in the marine and offshore industry speak for themselves.

Our application note describes how Kytola Oilan A4 can help you to save money and secure your processes.

Kytola OILCOL is an online oil colour analyzer that prevents damages and saves maintenance costs

The Kytola OILCOL oil colour analyzer is specifically designed for fast, accurate and real time measurement of the ASTM D1500 color value of oil. It is the perfect maintenance free solution for quality control and to help prevent machine failure.

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.

The OILCOL’s continuous and fast on-line indication of the oil color changes is the perfect instrument in this process as it allows for quick reaction to sudden changes in product quality and to perform preventative actions before any failures of the oil-using equipment occur. Also using the OILCOL eliminates the need for traditional time consuming and costly laboratory samplings and analyzes.

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°C to +70°C. Installation is easy and each OILCOL is individually calibrated to ensure the best possible accuracy for their customer.
