A cutting-edge solution for detecting ferrous wear and preventing costly downtime

Jul 10 2023

CM Technologies GmbH, who recently exhibited at OilDoc, presented their highly advanced Ferrous Wear Debris Meter at the exhibition. This device provides precise and reliable detection of ferrous wear in machinery parts, enabling businesses to mitigate costly downtime and maximise equipment performance.

Traditional methods of testing lubricant samples for ferrous wear debris often include intricate chemical processes. However, the Ferrous Wear Debris Meter eliminates the need for chemicals, thus simplifying the testing procedure considerably and facilitating environmental sustainability.

The Ferrous Wear Debris Meter can measure particles of any size, ensuring precise and comprehensive insights into the condition of the tested equipment. Its rapid warm-up phase enables efficient measurements in a matter of seconds. Designed for offline and at-line measurements, the Ferrous Wear Debris Meter enables businesses to gain crucial knowledge about the wear life cycle of their equipment. Its versatility spans a variety of applications, including the Cylinder Drain Oil of 2-stroke diesel engines, gearboxes, and other machinery. Providing repeatable and accurate results, the Ferrous Wear Debris Meter enables the determination of ferromagnetic material concentration down to single parts per million (ppm) levels. Regardless of particle size or quantity, even submicron particles, the device provides a reliable mass-proportional output.

Unlike spectrometric methods, the Ferrous Wear Debris Meter's readings remain unfettered by fluid base properties, additive packages, or water content. Readings are presented in straightforward mass/volume standard units, such as milligrams of iron per litre (mg Fe/L) or parts per million (ppm).

Key features of the Ferrous Wear Debris Meter include its unique fast measurement capabilities, compatibility with various media in the sample container, and its ability to detect iron content without being limited by particle sizes. Its user-friendly design and easy operation streamline the testing process, while its chemical-free nature ensures simplicity and environmental sustainability.
