Ottawa, ON (March 15, 2022) – Gastops is supporting Virtual Vehicle’s latest initiative in conducting high performance engine test cell research and development, supplying custom oil debris monitoring solutions with MetalSCAN.
MetalSCAN provides customers’ operating engine and gearbox test cells with essential conditioning monitoring technology, enabling evaluation, and testing of components and systems to measure real-time equipment health, performance and predict the remaining useful life (RUL) of critical components.
MetalSCAN delivers real-time equipment monitoring by offering a full flow, nonobstructive, online wear debris detection system. The design features, coupled with the ability for early detection of equipment failure, empower customers to manage and optimize their testing program, conduct root-cause analysis, and minimize costs by limiting damage to critical components.
Says Dr. Hannes Allmaier, PhD, Dipl.-Ing. Team Leader Tribology and Efficiency Group at Virtual Vehicle Research GmbH, “MetalSCAN proves itself to be a vital tool in our engine testing operation by detecting the initial onset and monitoring the progression of component damage. The indications allow us to manage the engine operational characteristics, maximize testing and prevent secondary component damage. With limiting damage, we are able to complete successful root cause analysis investigations.”
