Gearboxes, differentials, final drives and planetaries should be closely monitored for dirt and water contamination, although the type of wear occurring is usually the biggest concern. Direct Read Ferrography provides a ratio of large ferrous to small ferrous particles and reports a quantitative value that indicates the amount of ferrous wear occurring. Analytical Ferrography is a qualitative rather than quantitative analysis of ferrous wear that provides digital imagery of the actual particles. AF and DR are tremendously helpful in trend analysis.
Gear System Test Packages
Monitors condition of fluid and unit to determine wear and contamination levels.
Advanced testing takes basic condition monitoring to a truly predictive level with the addition of Particle Count for filtered gearboxes and Particle Quantifier for unfiltered gearboxes.
