Application process control computer vision and methods of making a decision about suitability regeneration of waste oil

Rafał Boniecki, Mirosław Miciak


The paper describes a new technological process enabling automatic evaluation of the quality of waste oil. The evaluation concerning the color and viscosity of the product is conducted with the use of computer vision methods, which ensures the stability and recurrence of the parameters of the product. The described system, already applied in an company dealing with collection and treatment of industrial waste, is being expanded to incorporate remote monitoring and management of technological processes in an oil refinery.
