Early recognition of bearing and gearbox damage with WEARSCANNER

Oil particle counting and analysis is an effective way of preventing gearbox and bearing failure.

Every rotating machine is subject to wear as a result of friction. Friction first produces very small particles, which increase in number until finally the particle size increases. The quantity of particles provides valuable information about the machine condition and the degree of wear. Information on wear can be obtained at a very early stage by monitoring not only the particle quantity, but also the particle size.

WEARSCANNER features an intelligent sensor that detects electrically

conductive particles in lubricants, counting them in real time and classifying

them by size according to ISO 16232. It automatically transfers the measured data to the plant control system via ModBus and/or straight to the operator or service center via an online Condition Monitoring system. Changes in the quantity and size of the detected particles observed during trend monitoring enable the early detection of progressive damage to gear teeth or roller bearings.

WEARSCANNER uses a patented method for detecting particles that is based on the eddy current principle and works independently of oil temperature, flow rate, viscosity, air and water content and oil color (darkening). In this way, it is also able to detect very slow-moving particles.
