MetalSCAN is a full-flow, on-line oil debris sensor that provides real-time detection and quantification of debris released into the lube oil system as a result of mechanical component damage such as to bearings and gears.
MetalSCAN is the leading sensor product available for advanced technology on-line detection of ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic metal particles in the oil flow. MetalSCAN provides reliable, early indication of damage, and estimation of the remaining life of the component.
MetalSCAN’s reliability lies in its simple, maintenance free design. The sensing element uses non-obtrusive magnetic coils, which surround the oil line and detect the passage of metallic debris. All of the particles above the minimum size threshold are detected and counted and, unlike conventional chip detection systems, MetalSCAN requires no cleaning and does not suffer from false alarms caused by the build-up of metallic wear “fuzz” or single large particles.
