Benefits of the Parker Kittiwake Metallic Wear Debris Sensor

It’s no secret that particles result from wear. That’s why your oil analysis service includes a Spectrometric Analysis and ferrous density report, but what happens should a problem arise between sampling?

The Parker Kittiwake Metallic Wear Debris Sensor goes beyond the scope of normal wear debris sensors. Here are just a few of its benefits:

Unbeatable detection range
The Metallic Wear Debris Sensor provides readings not only for ferrous metals but also for non-ferrous metals. The sensor is able to tell you not just the number of particles which pass through your system, but also the size and metallic composition.

Real-time monitoring
Our sensor goes beyond normal protection systems, allowing you to monitor in real-time. With the sensor you’ll be able to take immediate action on the first indication of change, thereby preventing all types of failures which can occur between traditional sampling.

Adaptable to your lubrication system
The sensor is extremely adaptable and can be mounted within almost any lubrication system, on any type of machine. By using proven inductive coil technology, combined with smart algorithms to provide a particle size distribution count, the sensor measures ferrous and non-ferrous metals resulting from the wear debris within the lubricant, placing the user in control. The severity of the problem increases with an escalation in the production of larger wear debris particles.

Easily integrated
With both digital and analogue outputs, the sensor can be easily integrated into existing condition monitoring and operating control systems, putting the user in control. Whether it’s checking the health of the machine or alerting to changing wear patterns, the sensor provides instant information, complementing existing laboratory oil analysis programmes and helping the user make informed decisions concerning maintenance planning.
