Bearing and Gear Condition Indication

Timely detection is the only way to fly.

Aircraft propulsion systems bearing and gear component damage can progress from damage initiation to failure in-flight in only a few hundred hours and if undetected, results in an in-flight shutdown event that is extremely costly and a potential safety risk.

Bearing and gear component damage in aircraft propulsion systems can progress from damage initiation to failure – in-flight – in only a few hundred hours. If undetected, an in-flight shutdown event will occur.

Gastops’ line of aviation products detect, monitor, and diagnose the health of bearings and gears eliminating potential high costs and safety risks due to in-flight shutdowns.

Traditional methods for detecting damage in the aviation sector include chip detectors: electric chip detectors providing in-flight indication, or manual chip detectors which are periodically inspected during ground checks. Decades of industry experience have shown that both versions are known to result in occurrences of missed indications causing in-flight shutdowns and/or false indications resulting in unnecessary flight diversions.

 

Recognizing these deficiencies, Gastops developed a series of game-changing products over the past 20 years that would apply new technology to eliminate the occurrence of missed indications and false positives. A two-pronged approach would provide both in-flight monitoring and improve routine ground assessment.


For in-flight monitoring, MetalSCAN was developed, qualified, and certified for new generation aircraft application. MetalSCAN on-line oil debris sensor detects and quantifies early bearing and gear damage in real-time on-board the aircraft. Through the use of MetalSCAN, it is now possible to monitor the progression of damage and provide multi-level warning to maintenance and operating staff before failure occurs.

For maintainers, FilterCHECK and ChipCHECK improve the effectiveness and accuracy of the assessment made during routine ground inspections. FilterCHECK automates the process of diagnosing the condition of aircraft equipment bearings and gears through the analysis of the debris captured in the lubrication system filter. ChipCHECK automates the process of diagnosing the condition of aircraft equipment bearings and gears through the analysis of the debris captured on the chip detectors.

Putting these tools directly in the hands of maintainers, the decision to fly or do maintenance is no longer subjective. The result is better and quicker decision making, reduction in operating costs, and improves overall safety.
