In this study design and operation of a capacitive cell sensor for liquid mixture monitoring is reported. Operation of the capacitance measurement module for such probe is based on the charge and discharge method. The capacitive effect of small drop of different liquids in tap water was studied using this capacitive sensor. A small percentage of contaminating agents such as oil in tap water is determined with a good sensitivity. Comparison of the measured resistances for different liquid mixtures shows a decrease by increasing Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). In another study the electrical capacitance of different solutions, mixture of ethanol and water, mixture of methanol and water, mixture of petroleum and water and other liquid mixtures were studied. It must be pointed out that the measuring capacitance of the sensor is different from that of the liquid capacitance, but the samples electrical characteristics can be compared relatively with each other. The effects of the electrical conductivity on the permittivity and conductance of different liquid mixtures are also investigated. The experimental results are promising concerning water liquids and verify the successful operation of such device as a liquid sensor and are a useful method for checking the electrical quality of the water mixture that is required for different applications.
