Mechanical impurity and iron in particular of lubricating oil will increase, if transmission system in mechanical devices is worn. Therefore, it is particularly important to measure iron content of lubricating oil. There are several methods for detecting lubricating oil at present, but these methods have some disadvantages such as high cost, complex operation, long testing cycle and so on. The paper puts forward the impedance method for measuring iron content of lubricating oil. Based on a series of experiments of the prepared sample oil of different iron content, the paper discussed the excitation current, suitable measurement frequency, and analyzed correlation between iron content and impedance, thus establishing mathematical model between iron content and impedance. The experimental results showed that it is feasible to use the impedance method for determination of iron content in lubricating oil.
