Moisture in Oil Measurement
Online monitoring of moisture content in lubricating, hydraulic and insulation oil is an important factor in maintaining the functional reliability of equipment and machines in the long term.
The moisture content in transformer oil, for example, has a considerable influence on insulating capabilities. Continuous monitoring of moisture levels is therefore essential in daily operation.
In the same way as moisture in gas, the moisture content in oil can be specified in absolute terms, as water content [ppm] or in relative terms as water activity [aw].
