Equipment wear detection in high-temperature environments

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

MetalSCAN 4110 (photo) is a condition-monitoring technology designed to detect and monitor the progression of component damage, including severity and remaining life indication, for bearings and gears in high-temperature, severe industrial and hazardous environments. The rugged MetalSCAN 4110 effectively detects Fe and non-Fe (NFE) metal particles to provide equipment operators and maintenance professionals early reliable detection of component damage. The included MetalSCAN Monitor Software continuously records and displays component damage data and annunciates warnings and alarms when debris accumulation exceeds defined limits. — Gastops, Ottawa, Ont., Canada
