Parker launches new generation of oil condition monitoring technology

PAREU858 Parker test kits 6 HRES 1Parker Hannifin, one of the global leaders in motion and control technologies, has announced an innovative oil condition monitoring technology that is set to help marine operators reduce downtime, reduce costs and protect assets

Developed in close collaboration with marine experts, the DIGI Plus has been designed to offer rapid on-site and on-board oil condition monitoring to improve productivity and increase uptime for the marine industry.

The company’s DIGI cell technology, which was introduced in 1993, has become a go-to solution for the marine sector to monitor oil condition. The DIGI Plus combined test cell, the latest innovation in the range, enables operators quickly and easily to test for water in oil and for the base number of oil samples.

The DIGI Plus has a built-in test memory for recording up to 50 individual test results as part of a pre-programmed test plan, whilst also having the capability for miscellaneous or spot tests as well. Test results are downloaded using a USB cable and the downloaded data can then be used as part of a trend analysis programme.

Having been developed for use in challenging conditions, the DIGI Plus features an improved backlit colour display that provides better visibility, especially in poor light conditions. The colour display has been designed to simplify identification of alarm conditions and pass or fail results, whilst also guiding the user through important test steps such as cell cleaning. The cell has been constructed from lightweight glass reinforced plastic with non-slip twist grips and aims to reduce handling fatigue during testing.

The DIGI Plus combined test cell offers both water in oil (H2O) and base number (BN) testing and comes as part of Parker’s DIGI Plus Field Test Kit, which also incorporates three other test measurements: acid number; insoluble loading and basic viscosity.
