Moving from Manual Oil Sampling to Real Time In-Situ Fluid Analysis
Miniotec provides the world’s most advanced industrial IoT fluid monitoring system by providing sensors capable of continuously monitoring metallic wear debris and particulates in an asset’s lubrication system in addition to in-line sensing technology for monitoring the health state of lubricating fluid.
Traditional oil sampling analysis has been undertaken by analysing oil samples in accredited oil labs – a slow and costly process. With Miniotec’s sensors, we now take the testing out of the lab and analyse equipment fluids in real-time, without manual intervention – a significant operational advantage.
Our sensors are able to detect mechanical failures very early in the degradation process by analysing an asset's fluid quality in real-time. This analysis provides tremendous insight, allowing for fluid remaining useful life (RUL) estimations and true condition-based oil changes to be reported.
These types of sensors can play a pivotal role in protecting and operating the world’s most critical equipment within oil and gas, mining, rail, power generation, including renewables, marine and other applications.

Technology With No Peer
Our fluid sensor utilises electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) technology to measure a fluid’s impedance spectrum and track its health. This provides multiple condition indicators which can be used to assess the lubricant’s additive package health, monitor breakdown, and identify the presence of contaminants.
