Amot is launching a Metal Particle Detector (MPD) that alerts machine operators to potential oil contamination, so oil condition checks can be performed. The MPD is an on-line continuous wear debris monitor that signals the presence of metal particles in lubricating oils. Timely detection of metal particles helps to maximise asset availability by avoiding unnecessary downtime, and reduces the cost of replacement components.
In addition, metal particle detection can verify filter system performance and failure, confirm system flushing, detect high corrosion and abrasion wear, identify improper machine repair, eliminate sampling errors and confirm corrective maintenance has been performed.
The MPD is a compact and robust device with a corrosion-resistant stainless steel body and no moving parts. It is simply installed in a side stream of the lube oil/fluid for gas or diesel engines and reciprocating or rotating compressors, pumps, turbines, transmissions and gearboxes. Its patented grid-sensing technology detects all conductive materials, including non-magnetic particles, in non-conductive fluid lubrication systems.
Amot describes the MPD as a reliable and effective tool for lubrication engineers, equipment operators and maintenance engineers. Follow the link for more information about the Metal Particle Detector.
