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

MetalSCAN 4000 series is easily installed in high temperature 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
  • On-line information on each metallic particle including size and type
  • Easy to install
  • Easy to interpret
  • Rugged, solid-state with no moving parts
  • Full function continuous built-in test (BIT)
  • Proven reliability in harsh machinery environments
  • Proven reliability in high temperature environments
  • Proven reliability in hazardous environments


  • 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.


MS4000 - How it works

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

The sensor is designed for conditions characterized by high oil/ambient temperatures, high vibration/shock, air/oil mixed flows, hazardous area locations, and demand for high reliability.

The MetalSCAN 4000 system consists of the following major components:

  • A full flow Sensor.
  • A low noise Sensor Cable which connects the sensor to the system electronics.
  • A Control Unit complete with electronics to excite the sensor, process the raw output from the sensor and extract information about the size and type of the metallic debris detected.
  • A host monitoring system which displays the current accumulated debris quantities and time trends, determines the equipment health from condition indices and announces warning/alarm exceedances. This function can be performed by a 3rd party monitoring system host or by a dedicated standalone PC running MetalSCAN Monitor host software.

MetalSCAN 4000 is available in two basic configurations defined by the Control Unit option selected:

  1. Multi-Sensor System – which includes from 1 to 6 Sensors and Sensor Cables, each connected to a multi-sensor Control Unit.
  2. Single Sensor System – which includes one Sensor, one Sensor Cable, and a single-sensor Control Unit.
