Detect Metal Particles in Lubricating Oils

The AMOT Metal Particle Detector (MPD) alerts operators to perform oil condition checks to determine machinery health status. The MPD is an in-line continuous wear debris monitor that signals the presence of metal particles in lubricating oils. Timely detection of metal particles ensures reliable machine conditions and maximizes asset availability by avoiding unnecessary downtime.

In addition, metal particle detection can verify filter system performance and failure, confirm system flushing, detect high corrosion and abrasion wear, identify improper machine repair, eliminate sampling errors and confirm corrective maintenance.

The MPD is compact and highly robust and its corrosion-resistant stainless steel body has no moving parts. Simply install it in a side stream of the lube oil/fluid for gas or diesel engines and reciprocating or rotating compressors, pumps, turbines, transmissions and gearboxes. Its unique grid-sensing technology detects all conductive materials, including non-magnetic particles in non-conductive fluid lubrication systems.

The MPD is a reliable and effective tool for lubrication engineers, equipment operators and maintenance engineers.  (MPD product page)
