This company’s new oil-debris sensor (photo) offers continuous, realtime monitoring of particle accumulation and contamination in hydraulic and lubrication systems. The sensor features a three-channel output that provides both an early warning of damaged bearings or gears that need maintenance to prevent unexpected downtime. Typical applications include monitoring gas-turbine engines, turbine gearboxes and other industrial applications. Solid particle contamination is a major cause for breakdown in hydraulic and lubrication oil systems, which can not only be costly to fix, but when compounded with unscheduled downtime, can cause even higher recovery costs. — Gill Sensors & Controls Ltd., Hampshire, U.K.
