Project Description:Process Measurement Device


The project focused on the design and build of an in-line prototype device to be used by industrial facilities to monitor the quality of cooling and lubricating fluids. Several properties of the fluid are measured such as temperature and contamination levels. The resulting data is collected, analyzed, and stored. The device incorporates a human interface using a liquid crystal display with push button inputs. Data is accessible through an Ethernet port, a USB connection or a secure digital card.
