information about customized Magnetic Chip Collectors
wear-generated debris in transmissions & gearboxes!
warning of failure in gears & bearings!
chip collection is the most economical and direct form of lube
system failure detection in use today. Usually located in a
gearbox or reservoir drain plug location, the magnetic chip
collector captures and retains particles for later removal and
off-line analysis. This device is differentiated from the
ubiquitous magnetic drain plug through the use of a unique
self-closing valve, which permits the chip collector to be
withdrawn without loss of lube or hydraulic oil. It is no longer
necessary to wait until an oil change to assess the condition of
critical gears and bearings. The chip collector can also be
line-mounted, closer to the potential failure point, for fault
isolation or even greater assurance of detecting a failure.
