Base your maintenance decisions on data 

By performing an analysis on a sample of lube oil, the Ferrous Wear Meter detects the content of ferrous debris from abrasive wear in moving parts. With sample as small as 5 ml, the instrument utilizes a magnetic principle to determine the amount of debris in the lube oil. By doing the analysis frequently with fixed intervals, an increase in wear can be detected at an early stage. This will allow the crew to base their maintenance on the actual conditions of the equipment, rather than on conservatively recommended service intervals. 

Easy operation that everyone can do 

The test itself could not be more straight forward or simple. A sample is draw from the equipment you wish to analyze and is put into one of the disposable test tubes that comes with the analyzer. The Ferrous Wear Meter just need to be powered up, and once it is ready for use, the test tube is inserted into the test tube slot. In a matter of seconds, the instrument will display a reading, showing the content of ferrous material in ppm. 

Main advantages and benefits: 

  • Appropriate for use on-site, on board and in remote locations
  • Very simple and easy to use
  • With LCD screen to give PPM
  • Reduced Operating Costs
  • Decreased Downtime
  • Reduced Scrape Down Oil Usage
  • Immediate ferrous wear measurement in PPM on the LCD screen.

To do the test just take a tube with 5 ml of sample oil and put it in the hole in the unit and it's metallic content in PPM will display on the LCD screen in less than 2 sec.
