The POQ Monitor is not limited to measurements of Palm Oil Online but can be used on any type of vegetable oil. It also has been successfully installed and operated in other organic type oils and even synthetic oil simply because it works by a universally principle of measuring liquid permittivity. Rapid measurements of the dielectric constant within the oil monitoring units is correlated to known look up tables automatic so that oil quality reporting can be conducted without the need for excessive visual inspection or manual sampling. It is not intended to replace manual oil sampling but to reduce the frequency and necessity.
There are considerable benefits of an installation of monitors on multiple oil lines and one of them is the cost savings in manual labor since manual sampling frequency can be reduced by the implementation of electronic oil sampling. In addition the accuracy is improved since the whole batch of oil is being monitored as opposed to simply just a hand sample that could not really representative of the total volume in a truck or tank. Simple calculations and even demonstrations prove this point and are useful when considering online crude palm oil monitoring systems.
