AMOT describes its metal particle detector (MPD) as an
on-line continuous wear debris monitor that signals the presence of metal
particles in lubricating oils. The MPD, AMOT adds, alerts the operator to
perform oil condition checks to determine machinery health status.
Timely detection of metal particles ensures reliable machine
conditions, the manufacturer says, and maximizes asset availability by avoiding
unnecessary downtime. 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.
Compact, lightweight and durable, the MPD has a corrosion-resistant stainless steel
body with no moving parts. Users install the MPD 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 grid-sensing patented
technology detects all conductive materials, AMOT says, including non-magnetic
particles, in non-conductive fluid lubrication systems.
