Abstract

Machinery is a chain of parts working and moving against one another to accomplish a manufacturing job; as a result, friction is inevitable leading to excessive heat and damaging machine components. Therefore, lubrication must be applied to lengthen the life of the machine and reduce the breakdowns; as well as, it prevents corrosion by protecting the surface from water and other corrosive substances, it transports contaminants to filters to be cleaned, and it controls temperature by absorbing heat from surfaces and transferring it to a point of lower temperature where it can be dissipated. An intelligent efficient online testing and filtering system has been built and developed. In this system examines the cleanliness of the hydraulic oil and digitally displays its contamination level. The oil will circulate in the system and at every cycle, the system will automatically filter the oil toward the desired cleanliness level. The key advantage of this work is its ability to achieve a remarkable improvement in oil cleanliness, and to extend oil lifelength. The experiment is carried out online without stopping the hydraulic system which saves time and reduces cost.
