Protect your machine tool investment with visual maintenance.
The Oil Sentinel is a continuous oil monitoring system that installs directly
in machine tool and industrial processing equipment to continuously monitor
oil through visual maintenance. In addition to offering significant advantages
to planned equipment maintenance, the Oil Sentinel provides preventative
advantages, extends lubricant life, and preserves the performance and longevity

The Oil Sentinel system continuously monitors and displays the following
- Oxidation - indicates wear from corrosion and excess friction by
measuring oil breakdown (acid buildup) and loss of lubricity.
- Water Contamination - indicates lubrication film breakdown from excess
- Temperature - indicates excessive heat of the oil by measuring a relative
difference in ambient to reservoir temperature.
- Level - indicates a proper supply of lubricant by measuring the absolute
level of the oil in the reservoir.
