Tan Delta: Not All Condition Based Monitoring is the Same.

Del

Condition based monitoring (CBM) and maintenance programmes typically include many interrelated technologies. CBM provides an assessment of equipment condition, based on collecting and interpreting data with a view to providing maintenance at the optimum point. This allows a company to make cost-effective and logical maintenance decisions, reducing scheduled costs and reducing in-service fault repair costs, by eliminating run-to-failure and the associated consequences of unscheduled downtime.

Oil analysis is increasingly recognised as a critical element of condition based monitoring. Oil analysis provides important information about equipment wear-condition, as well as the condition of the oil itself. Keeping machinery operating at the optimal level involves measuring, monitoring and analysing changes in lubricant and fuel oils for contamination and chemical content. This data can provide insights into issues affecting performance and reliability, and operators can make lucrative maintenance decisions based upon these oil analysis results.

Common oil analysis practices include outsourcing to an off-site laboratory, with the resulting reports driving maintenance decisions. Alternatively, in-line oil condition sensors have been available for a number of years, however for most early adopters, they have delivered limited benefit due to a lack of sensitivity and temperature instability.

Unlike other oil condition sensors on the market, Tan Delta provides Full Spectrum Holistic (FSH) monitoring of any oil type in any application in real time. The Oil Quality Sensor (OQSx), uses a patented method accurately measuring the electro-chemical properties of the oil at a molecular level. This is achieved by using a very high frequency AC current to measure the ratio between conductance and capacitance of the oil, giving an extremely high level of sensitivity to all common oil wear mechanisms and contaminations with exceptional temperature stability and repeatability.

The sensor is configured with the electro-chemical fingerprint for the required oil, as the oil changes the electro-chemical fingerprint of the oil also changes and these minute differences are detected by the OQSx. Repeated independent testing has established the point at which this increased molecular activity will have a detrimental effect on the oil’s ability to function correctly.

This gives the OQSx the ability to monitor an oil through its whole lifecycle, giving an accurate oil condition reading by constantly measuring the difference between the clean and current oil. This generates a simple traffic light output with an associated Tan Delta Number, allowing very accurate trending of oil condition over time.

This unrivalled FSH technology in the condition monitoring industry, defines why our products are adopted by world leading companies. Patented techniques, developed and refined over many years, ensures ultimate performance with absolute reporting accuracy. Tan Delta continually invest in the development of new technologies and products which will deliver even greater commercial benefits and opportunities for our customers in the future.

About Tan Delta Systems:

Tan Delta Systems is the global leader in oil condition monitoring technologies and systems that reduce equipment operating costs. FSH oil condition monitoring products are used by leading equipment operators around the world to reduce costs and increase profits. Distributor enquiries welcome.

Transphorm’s High Voltage GaN FETs Amp Up Marotta Controls’ Military Grade High Frequency Power Supply17.12.2018 14:00Pressemelding

Transphorm Inc.—the leader in the design and manufacturing of the highest reliability and first JEDEC- and AEC-Q101 qualified gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductors—today announced with Marotta Controls that the Aerospace and Defense supplier’s upcoming power supply unit (PSU) replaces incumbent Silicon (Si) MOSFETs with high voltage GaN PQFN devices to offer advanced benefits. Marotta’s latest design operates at high frequency in a conduction-cooled mechanically constrained envelope. The supply’s topology features hard switching and an automatic transformer RESET capability where transistor voltage stresses are clamped to the input voltage. The GaN devices increase the PSU’s efficiency dramatically and alleviate a complex thermal design in the small form factor package. “The demand on our power supplies and expectation of performance is high,” explained Mike Scruggs, Principal Engineer, Marotta Controls. “This particular complex PSU needed to reliably convert and distribute power in a s

New Phase 3 data demonstrate superiority of TREMFYA®▼ (guselkumab) vs Cosentyx® (secukinumab) in delivering PASI 90 responses in the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis at week 4817.12.2018 12:56Pressemelding

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced results from the ECLIPSE study demonstrating that TREMFYA® (guselkumab) was superior to Cosentyx® (secukinumab)* in treating adults with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis for the primary endpoint assessed at week 48. Data from the multicentre, randomised, double-blind head-to-head Phase 3 study demonstrated that 84.5 percent of patients treated with guselkumab achieved at least 90 percent improvement in their baseline Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) score at week 48, compared with 70.0 percent of patients treated with secukinumab (p<0.001).1 These data, presented at the 3rd Inflammatory Skin Disease Summit (ISDS) in Vienna, 12–15 December, mark the first-ever results from a head-to-head study comparing an interleukin (IL)-23-targeted biologic therapy (guselkumab) with an IL-17 inhibitor (secukinumab). ECLIPSE is Janssen’s fourth Phase 3 study for guselkumab in plaque psoriasis2-4 and is part of a comprehen
