Paper Abstract

A method based on a quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) was used for the first time to analyze oil quality on line. When the QCM is immersed in the oil, the resonant frequency will change according to the change of viscosity, density of oil on the crystal electrode. According to this principle, Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM) with temperature sensor is a novel test technique that allows for the on-line, real- time analysis of quality of the oil. In this article the principle and measuring device of QCM as oil analysis sensor are described. The key design of the hardware of this system is given.
