Bearing and Gear Condition Indication

MetalSCAN logo

In-service aircraft gear and transmission component damage can progress to failure in-flight 100’s or even 10’s of hours.

Through the use of MetalSCAN, it is now possible to detect early damage, monitor the progression of this damage and provide multi-level warning to maintenance and operations organizations before failure occurs, on-line and in-flight.

Originally developed for the F-22 Advanced Tactical Fighter engine, MetalSCAN is available for a wide range of military and commercial aircraft applications. The sensor provides state-of-the-art engine, gearbox, and transmission protection and health monitoring for many of the world’s most advanced aircraft including the F-35 Lightning and Airbus A320neo.

The MetalSCAN sensor is installed in the full-flow of the gearbox or transmission lubrication system in a suitable location ahead of the system filter. The sensor’s signal conditioning electronics can be integrated directly into the component monitoring unit or helicopter HUMS, or it can be implemented in a standalone configuration depending on the aircraft monitoring architecture.

Applications

  • Sea King S-61/H-3 (Main transmission)
  • F-35 B Lightning (LiftFan)
  • Airbus A320neo (PW1100G fan gearbox)
  • Pilatus PC-12 (PT6 prop gearbox)
  • Mitsubishi MRJ (PW1200G fan gearbox)
  • Irkut MS-21 (PW1400G fan gearbox)
  • Bombardier C-Series (PW1500G fan gearbox)
  • Embraer E-175 E2 (PW1700G fan gearbox)
  • Embraer E-190/E-195 E2 (PW1900G fan gearbox)

On-line Oil Debris Sensor that provides real-time detection of component damage.

ChipCHECK

When the lubricated components of aircraft gearboxes and transmissions are damaged, debris enters into the lubrication system and is captured on the lube system magnetic chip detectors.

ChipCHECK eliminates the visual guesswork required of the maintainer and provides a reliable quantitative indication of the number, size, and alloy composition of the chips, and using pre-loaded condition indices empowers the maintainer to make the right Go/No-Go decision, everytime.

Applications

  • AH-64 Apache (Main transmission)
  • UH-60 Black Hawk (Main transmission)

Deployable Chip Analysis system that provides GO/NO-GO maintenance decision support.

FilterCHECK

When the lubricated components of aircraft gearboxes or transmissions are damaged, debris enters into the lubrication system and is captured by the system filter.

FilterCHECK is employed when chip detection inspection and analysis is insufficient. FilterCHECK unlocks the information buried in the filter to help maintainers validate conclusively if there is damage present and additionally, which specific component(s) are damaged within the gearbox.

FilterCHECK has already been incorporated into many fixed and rotary wing aircraft maintenance programs for gearbox and transmission condition monitoring, where chip detector inspection/analysis methods have proven to be insufficient for safe and cost effective operations of the fleet

Applications

  • S-61/H-3 Sea King (Main transmission)
  • C-130 Hercules (T56 prop gearbox)
  • UH-60 Black Hawk (Main transmission)
  • SH-2G Seasprite (Main transmission)
  • P-3C Orion (T56 prop gearbox)
  • Pilatus PC-9 (PT6 prop gearbox)

Deployable Filter Debris Analysis system that provides GO/NO-GO maintenance decision support.
