Leakage Sensor

Oil leaks are expensive. A single hydraulic leak of one drop per second is equal to 420 gallons of oil in a 12 month period. Multiply 420 gallons by the current price and it’s clear that it isn’t worth it to let the problem continue. In addition to the cost of the lost oil, other machine parts can be damaged if the leak is severe.

How Does It Work?

Led lights inform from 4..20 mA stand of flow up to 630bar (9,100 psi), from minimal quantities like 0,02 L/minute and for diameters from 12mm can be put in practice the fluid-Check®. The leakage sensor fluid-Check® is ready to be use and will be programmed by BOLENDER-Germany according necessities of the client in liters or gallons per minute. It is based on the calorimetric principle, that means the sensor head has an intern thermo element and heating where the running oil temperature will be measured. The measuring cycle takes 3 seconds.

The sensor head temperature raises at 2°C. The time for this will be measured and the flow rate will be calculated. The needed time for measuring is 15 seconds. The special on this “made in Germany” product is not only the easy installation of 5 minutes- no cutting pipes and without contamination with an Allen wrench. The hydraulic operator gets with the fluid-Check® sensor and the measuring connection serv-Clip® with ¾” screw that opens a wide choice of measuring devices because one can deinstall the fluid-Check® and install at the same point sensors-transducers for temperature, pressure or manometers, pressure gauges, hydraulic horses.

BOLENDER-Germany promises to meet the complex requirements for fluid measuring and pipe working with a cheap solution avoiding consequential expensive reparations of hydraulic systems.
