ARGO-HYTOS develops and produces oil condition sensors, stationary and portable particle counters, oil maintenance and oil diagnostic systems for online oil condition monitoring and condition based maintenance as well as hydraulic components like filters and filter systems, filter cooler units, valves and power packs for fluid motion control and customized system solutions. We produce fluid power solutions.


  • OPCount

    The OPCount is a particle counter of the latest generation which can be used for stationary and mobile operation. The high measuring accuracy of the OPCount, in connection with the possibility to display the measured particle concentration according to all current standards, allows use in a variety of applications. Measurement can be carried out directly at a pressure line or from a bottle, using the integrated pump.
    The OPCount can be operated intuitively via a keypad and the large touch display. The measuring results can directly be printed and read out for further processing. The included accessories can conveniently be stowed directly at the device, which substantially simplifies handling.

  • LubMon Visu - Display Unit and Data Logger

    LubMon Visu is a display unit, suitable for panel-mounting, with integrated data memory for connection of various sensors. ARGO-HYTOS offers a wide range of compatible sensors for monitoring of hydraulic and lubricating fluids. These are amongst others particle monitors, temperature, humidity and oil aging sensors as well as sensors for monitoring of the filter lifetime.
    Furthermore any sensor with analog current output may be connected e. g. for filter monitoring.

  • LubCos Visplus Lubrication Condition Sensor

    A service sensor for determination of the viscosity, relative permittivity and temperature in hydraulic and lubricating oils. The sensor is a screw-in sensor and immersion sensor respectively and is designed for continuous monitoring of the oil condition in service applications.

  • LubCos H2Oplus II - Lubrication Condition Sensor

    Stationary screw-in sensor for the continuous determination of the oil condition, humidity and temperature in hydraulic and lubricating oils.

  • OPCom Portable Oil Lab - Portable Oil Diagnostic System

    The OPCom Portable Oil Lab is a mobile oil laboratory for service, with which the oil cleanliness and the oil condition in hydraulic and lubrication systems can be measured quickly and easily.

  • UMPC 045 - Ecoline

    Oil Service Unit with Particle Monitor, up to 45 l/min

  • FAPC 016 - Cleanline Portable

    Oil Service Unit with Particle Monitor, up to 16 l/min

Product news

  • OPCom II - Particle monitor of a wide range of applications

    Oil purity is the essential oil parameter for the reliable operation of valves and pumps. High concentrations of particles can cause components to malfunction or become damaged. In addition, an
    increase in particle concentration can also indicate that there is a damaged component or an increased dirt entry. Monitoring oil purity online makes it possible to detect changes in the particle
    concentration immediately and take suitable action. That is the reason why the monitoring of oil purity is increasingly performed online. For more than 5 years, ARGO-HYTOS has offered its
    online particle monitor OPCom as part of its product range. When overhauling this product series, ARGO-HYTOS paid
    particular attention to the product‘s functional design and versatile communication options. Consequently, the OPCom II now comes standard with a CAN-BUS in addition to a serial port
    and an analog 4...20 mA output. What is more, the OPCom II is also equipped with two additional digital interfaces, an
    alarm output and an input used to start and stop the measurement externally. These interfaces and functional features
    allow the online particle monitor to be integrated effortlessly into higherranking control systems, e. g. those installed in test stands or machine controllers. The measurements can be taken both time-controlled and depending on machine or testing cycles.
    Thanks to its compression resistance of 420 bar and its extraordinarily compact design the OPCom II is suitable for a
    wide range of different applications.

  • UMPC 045 - programmable cleanliness class

    Using the mobile UMPC 045 oil service unit, hydraulic and lubricating systems can be easily filled or cleaned. The UMPC
    045 is equipped with hoses and filter element and is ready to be connected. For easy transport, electrical cables as
    well as vacuum and return hose, are mounted on support brackets on the machine frame. The ergonomic design
    permits easy handling even where space is at a premium.
    An integrated particle monitor constantly monitors the oil cleanliness level. Data can be transmitted to a PC via an RS 232
    interface, and the cleanliness gradient can be shown graphically or tabulated, and tracked. Up to 500 measurements
    can be saved in memory and downloaded at a later point.
    NEW: The target cleanliness level can now be programmed using an add-on module. Once the target cleanliness level has been reached, an indicator light shows and the pump switches off automatically.

  • New maintenance concepts thanks to continuous oil monitoring

    Hydraulic and lubrication systems are an essential part of mobile machines in which oil plays a series of important roles. The oil transmits power, lubricates, manages heat and transports dirt to the filters. Scientific studies have shown that malfunctions in hydraulic and lubrication systems are predominantly caused by wear, contamination, deterioration, mixing or extreme temperature fluctuations.
    It is, therefore, crucial that the oil is in proper working order. Knowing the current condition of the oil also provides information as to the condition of the machine at the same time.
    Unlike individual oil samples, continuous condition monitoring or so-called Online Condition Monitoring“(OCM), of the oil and the filters enables predictive analysis and early detection of failures.
    Detectable causes of failures include contamination of the oil by water, dirt, increased wear, mixing with other fluids and the use of the wrong oil. In addition, OCM enables better documentation of service measures including oil changes and maintenance. Intelligent OCM sensors can extend maintenance and oil change intervals and prevent production downtimes, leading to a significant reduction in operating costs.
    To cover all aspects of monitoring the condition of oil, ARGO-HYTOS has added two new sensors to its product range: The LubCos Visplus and the LubCos Level. In addition to measuring the temperature and dielectricity, the LubCos Visplus also measures viscosity in particular. Like the LubCos H2Oplus, the LubCos Level is equipped with intelligent condition monitoring that, among other things, detects the remaining useful life of the oil (RUL), the water content and an oil mixture. However, the LubCos Level also enables continuous level measurement, which can replace existing level and temperature sensors. This facilitates system integration and offers additional savings potential by making other sensors redundant.
    Furthermore, the LubCos H2Oplus and the OPCom have been fundamentally redesigned in keeping with customer requirements as regards communication, simple operation and size. Both sensors now fulfil CANopen standards, just as the LubCos Level and the LubCos Visplus, and are thus suitable for mobile application.
    The OCM sensors are completed with the addition of a new display and memory unit, the LubMon Visu. It is compatible with all ARGO-HYTOS OCM sensors and in addition, any analogue sensors you want can be connected to it. LubMonVisu features a graphic display, a USB connection, an SD card reader, a real time clock, an internal data memory, an optional Ethernet interface with web server, as well as switching contacts for alarm management. In addition to other accessories, a printer can also be connected to the module.
    With its CM products, ARGO-HYTOS has all the aspects of Fluid Condition Monitoring covered. From stationary systems to mobile applications and right down to the service area, ARGO-HYTOS is your complete partner for solutions from one source.
