A lack of visibility makes maintaining safety standards in heavily industrialized environments such as oil management tough at the best of times. And, with excessive oil changes leading to additional maintenance and wasted production time the challenge continues.

Fluid Intelligence was founded in early 2016 by Mika Perttula to meet this challenge head-on. They developed a cloud based technology platform, which is powered by the Arduino MKR GSM 1400 (3G / 2G connectivity) plus different tests with the MKR NB 1500 (NBioT and CATM1 board) alongside sensors, nodes and gateways that pro-actively monitor oil performance. Fluid Intelligence wanted to change the way oil is used so large engineering plants can drive operational efficiency and reduce waste.

Mika, CEO of Fluid Intelligence explained “We realized that a simple lack of visibility meant that a high number of oil changes were required to meet safety standards, so with support from Arduino we developed a technology platform that allow engineers to prolong the life of oil through pro-active maintenance.”

Andrea Richetta, Head of Arduino Professional and IOT services says: “the collaboration with Fluid Intelligence is really fruitful to explain how is powerful, fast and easy to deploy professional solutions based on the Arduino technology. For companies, this means a quicker time to market and an even faster ROI.”

And the results have been impressive. They have enabled engineering plants to avoid gear box failures and worked with an energy plant to significantly reduce the number oil changes. In fact, they have managed to half the amount of operational waste for the customers they serve.

Fluid Intelligence work their magic across a number of sectors including Energy, Manufacturing, Paper & Pulp, Logistics and Chemical. Reducing the operational burden of reactive maintenance by harnessing the power of single board computing technology.
