SNAME-Revolutionising Oil Condition Monitoring for Condition-based Maintenance (CbM) and Predictive Maintenance (PdM) on Vessels

SNAME GREEK SECTION | MONTHLY MEETING

THURSDAY, 25th APRIL 2024 @ 19:00

We are delighted to invite you to the upcoming SNAME Technical Presentation on Thursday the 25th of April, 2024, where we are pleased to welcome:

Mr David Hill

Head of Sales

RAB Microfluidics

who will make a presentation on

Revolutionising Oil Condition Monitoring for Condition-based Maintenance (CbM) and Predictive Maintenance (PdM) on Vessels

SYNOPSIS

 

New technologies can help vessel operators to gain a detailed view of equipment condition and lubricating oil performance, without the delays associated with onshore laboratory testing.

The use of Microfluidic technology, when combined with Machine Learning and advanced AI, gives the opportunity to conduct detailed chemical and physical analysis of oil properties on-board.

Specifically, the microfluidic platform incorporated with optical (e.g., Ultraviolet or Infrared) spectroscopy techniques enable identification and isolation of target components in the oil and captures their compositional signature for analysis using Machine Learning and AI.

 

By applying Machine Learning to the generated compositional signature of the oil, an AI algorithm can be trained to quantify practically any known component in the oil such as acidity, basicity, soot, water, metals etc.

 

This  technology enables automation that allows deterministic onsite real-time analysis of lubricating oil producing results that are comparable to traditional laboratories.

Such automation heralds a state-of-the art application where it is now possible to generate comprehensive lab quality data in real-time, combine this with information on equipment condition and operation such as running hours, workload, lube consumption etc for Condition-based Maintenance (CbM) and Predictive Maintenance (PdM).

With the inclusion of automatic machine-integrated sampling and sensing devices, vessel operators can be presented with predicted equipment failure modes well in advance. This gives sufficient time to take appropriate action to avoid unplanned maintenance while reducing operating costs.
