Real-time early damage detection for industrial equipment that tells you what you need to know, when you need to know it.

MetalSCAN 3000 series is easily installed in industrial grade equipment lubrication systems to provide early detection, severity, and remaining life indication for bearings and gears located deep within the critical component.



  • 100% detection of ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic metal particles
  • Easy to install
  • Easy to interpret
  • Rugged, solid-state with no moving parts
  • Full function continuous built-in test (BIT)
  • Proven reliability in harsh equipment environments
  • Low cost


  • Earliest reliable detection of component damage
  • Monitor damage progression and estimate remaining life
  • Avoid unplanned outages
  • Avoid equipment secondary damage

Installed before the oil filter, MetalSCAN is designed to detect the presence of metallic particles which are produced as a result of early mechanical damage.

The sensor generates a single voltage pulse for each metal particle(ferromagnetic or non-ferromagnetic) detected above the sensor’s minimum size threshold. The signal is designed to interface to a host, either a MetalSCAN 3000 series Communication Assembly (Ethernet or wireless GPRS), or directly to a 3rd party monitoring or control system (host). The host to each particle pulse by incrementing a counter which is then compared to pre-determined equipment condition indicators. The condition indicators are based upon simple criteria which reliably establish whether the machine is healthy or not, if not how much damage there is, and how much longer the machine can be operated all performed local to the host with no need for expensive expert based analysis and consultations.

The product is available in a range of sizes and configurations tailored to minimize the impact on the lubrication system performance, optimize ease of installation, and minimize cost.

The sensor is designed for industrial grade applications characterized by oil and ambient temperatures not exceeding 85°C and 70°C respectfully, high vibration/shock, air/oil mixed flows, and demand for high reliability and low cost.
