Literature Available On Foxboro's New On-Line Ferrograph

Foxboro Analytical, a Division of The Foxboro Company, has just published a Product Specification Sheet for its new Model 958PF on-line ferrograph. Through monitoring of the level of wear debris within a lubricating or hydraulic system, this new instrument is said to provide early warning of incipient failure in a wide range of machinery.

Wear debris is separated from the oil by a high-gradient magnetic field, and quantitative measurement of the debris is achieved by a surface effect capacitive sensor.

As separation of the debris is such as to provide a distribution according to size, two quantitative measurements are made to provide information on size distribution and total debris concentration within the system.

A p p l i c a t i o n s include marine propulsion and auxiliary machinery, gas turbines, gear boxes and transmissions, large critical bearings, hydraulic systems, and offshore production rigs.
