Bearing and Gear Condition Indication

New production or aftermarket overhauls of critical marine rotating equipment requires pass-off testing in a purpose built ground test facility to confirm that the equipment has been assembled properly and performs within specification.

Gastops’ solutions MetalSCAN, FilterCHECK, ChipCHECK enable test engineers to determine at the test facility – in minutes – whether the equipment is ready to ship.

As part of pass-off testing, it is common practice to inspect the lubrication system chip detectors, filters, and oil samples for signs of early damage and confirm that the equipment released to the customer is “clean” and in the required serviceable state.

These inspections can range from purely visual to expensive chip, filter debris, and oil analyses performed in a laboratory.

In cases where inspections are purely visual, organizations may be risking releasing unit that may have excessive build debris thereby causing damage once put in service or possibly releasing a unit that may include an assembly error.

Alternatively, in the case where inspection through laboratory analysis is already performed, there may be opportunity to improve the process to reduce the turnaround time and high laboratory analysis costs associated with releasing the equipment to the customer.

MetalSCAN installed in the test stand can be used to confirm and isolate damage after the equipment is removed from the facility, before expensive exploratory teardown is initiated.

The application of MetalSCAN on-line oil debris monitoring systems to monitor in real-time the metallic debris flowing through a newly assembled equipment during the pass-off test can significantly improve the confidence level that the equipment is “clean”, assembled properly and ready to ship to the customer, all before the equipment is shut down and without costly and time consuming laboratory analysis of filters, chips, and oil samples.

In addition, MetalSCAN has also proven to be a valuable complement to the extensive test instrumentation used during engineering and development programs to help engineering monitor and diagnose the condition of these equipment.

FilterCHECK

The application of laboratory based filter debris analysis to confirm that the machine is “clean”, assembled properly and ready to ship to a customer is common practice with many equipment manufacturers and overhaul providers.

FilterCHECK

The application of FilterCHECK to perform filter debris analysis at the test facility to replace the existing laboratory analyses can significantly reduce the turnaround time to obtain clearance to ship and thereby improve the efficiency of the testing activity.

Furthermore the low cost, ease-of-use, and flexibility of using FilterCHECK at the test facility location can enable organizations not currently performing filter debris analysis, due to the high costs of laboratory analyses, to expand their current practices to improve product quality at a relatively low cost.
