Hydraulic testers and monitors for hydraulic systems are in-line sensors that are able to measure values such as flow rate, pressure or temperature of a fluid. Some sensors are also able to measure the quality of fluids such as oil. All of these measurements give a user the necessary information about the fluids used within the system and warn of possible failures that may be caused by the wrong condition of the fluid. Reliable and regular testing and monitoring is highly recommended in order to detect faults and help keep costs to a minimum.
RS have a great range of hydraulic instrumentation and equipment including diagnostic tools like these diagnostic testers and monitors for measuring, checking and reporting. fluid or oil based hydraulic systems. By investing in high quality and reliable monitoring and test equipment, they can help reduce disruption and can give accurate reports on the health of your machine.
There are several types of sensors available on the market but the most common ones are sensors that monitor and measure oil, water or both at the same time:
