How To Solve The Reminder Of Insufficient Lubricant Level?

- Dec 07, 2019-

Everyone knows that the lubricating oil system is composed of a lubricating oil tank, a main oil pump, an auxiliary oil pump, an oil cooler, an oil filter, a high-level oil tank, a valve, and a pipeline. The high-level oil tank is a protective facility. When the main and auxiliary oil pumps supply oil is interrupted, the high-level oil tank will flow along the oil inlet pipe and flow into the lubrication points by gravity to maintain the lubrication needs of the unit during idle travel. The oil storage capacity of the high-level fuel tank should generally be maintained at a fuel supply time of not less than 5 minutes. Too high or low oil level in the lubricant tank will have the following effects:

The oil level in the lubricating oil tank is too high, which may cause oil spills, but it will mainly affect the degassing of the upper space of the oil tank, and then affect the oil return of the unit.
The oil tank level is too low, the lubricating oil pump will be evacuated, which will cause the lubricating oil pressure to fluctuate. The bearing temperature of the unit will be too high, and the unit is likely to stop.


In daily life, there is usually a function of water shortage protection in many household appliances, such as humidifiers, aromatherapy machines, and coffee machines. Install a water level sensor at the bottom of the water tank to detect the water level change. When the sensor detects the lack of water inside the water tank, it will give a signal reminder. After the device receives the signal, the control circuit is powered off to protect the device from damage caused by continuous dry burning of the device.


Similarly, a liquid level indicator is provided on the side wall of the fuel tank to monitor the change of the lubricating oil in the fuel tank to prevent sudden changes in the lubricating oil level during the operation of the unit and affect the safe operation of the unit. In order to better realize the lubricating oil level alarm, we recommend the EPT photoelectric liquid level sensor FS-IR1902.

This level sensor provides single point level detection, TTL signal output. The photoelectric liquid level switch sensor uses the principle of refraction and reflection of light, and the interface between two different media will produce reflection or refraction. The design contains an infrared emission source and a detector, and the installation position is accurate to ensure that the two achieve good optical coupling in the air. When the tapered end of the sensor is immersed in liquid, infrared light will be transmitted out of the tapered surface, and the intensity of the light reaching the detector will be weakened. The LLC series photoelectric level sensor (industrial grade, photoelectric flood sensor) is designed for industrial applications. Capable of heavy-duty environments in industrial applications. This series of products are suitable for a wide voltage range power supply environment, and the driving current can reach 250mA. Therefore, this series of sensors can directly drive alarms and other devices. It is widely used in the fields of machine oil, heat sink, refrigerant liquid level, gear box, transmission case oil liquid level, pump, gearbox liquid level detection and other fields.
