MetalWorking Fluids (MWF) are used to cool and lubricate machines and tools. Most of the time, MWF are oil in water emulsions (1% to 10% of oil concentration) with characteristics depending on type of oil, material to be worked, etc. Online and accurate control of the MWF help to anticipate poor quality in a machining process. This control is based on periodic measurements of oil concentration, pH, temperature, conductivity,... in order to proactively compensate inevitable changes due to water evaporation, bacterial attack, oil adhesion to metal parts, etc.
Key Features Of FluidMiner
FluidMiner is a mini laboratory embedding wireless sensors to measure in real time fluid’s relevant indicators such as : pH, temperature, concentration, conductivity, hardness, particle , bacteria,...
Fluidminer is able to automatically regulate the fluid when its characteristic are outside of normal operating condition.
Realtime alerts are sent when threholds are reached
Multiple bath measurements
This video shows Fluidminer in a real case. Concentration, PH and Temperature are measured in this case on 4 baths in parallele. Concentration is automatically regulated and alerts are sent on predefined events.
Keys indicators monitoring
Several sensors are integrated into the fluidminer to analyze the fluid. The types of measurements returned are the concentration of oil in water, temperature, pH , conductivity , ORP, Standard measurements are concentration, temperature, and pH. More measurements are possible depending on a specific need.
Data retrieved from sensors are sent to the Monixo cloud (or custom Cloud) through an IoT network/4G The two main communication protocols are MQTT and HTTP
Smart Features Of Fluidminer
Our sensors will get accurate measurements from baths, all you need to know about there status
FluidMiner is a highly adaptable IoT sotution for fluid monitoring.
Fluidminer is able to analyze in realtime fluid from up to 8 different baths
User is proactively notified when an event occurs (threshold, regulation)
Regulate fluid parameters when they are out of normal
Sensors are automatically recalibrated and user notified
