Inline Measurement of Refrigerant Oil Concentrations
Ultrasonic sensor measures and documents refrigerant-to-oil ratio
SensoTech’s LiquiSonic® analyzer allows for precision measurement of oil concentration in refrigerant to ensure the optimum ratio of oil and refrigerant. According to SensoTech, the LiquiSonic sensors use ultrasonic technology to continuously and directly measure the oil concentration. The measuring values are updated every second and for complete documentation all results are stored in the LiquiSonic controller.
“The effectiveness of compression refrigeration systems can be excellently optimized by inline analytical technology,” SensoTech said. “A too high oil concentration reduces the cooling capacity of the refrigerant, whereas a too low concentration reduces the lubrication of the compressor. By monitoring the process online, effectiveness and safety increases, quality is enhanced, and cost savings can be realized.”
