A vibrating U-Tube decimeter has been evaluated as a sensor for measuring the concentration of oil in the liquid line of a refrigeration system. Calibration and performance tests were conducted under simulated liquid-line conditions for R-407C/POE oil and R-410A/POE oil mixtures in oil concentration from 0 to 15 weight percent. Test temperatures ranged from 20 to 5$0^{\circ}C$. As a result of test, oil concentration correlations are presented in terms of specific gravity at each constant temperature. These equations enable to predict the oil concentration without any extraction of the mixture, and can be applied for R-407C/POE oil and R-410A/POE oil mixtures.
