Background Particle counting is a critical aspect of any machine conditioning program and there are many tools out there available to monitor and track the quantity and severity of the contamination, be it due to external contamination or machine wear. The specific application and type of particles will often govern what is the best particle counting technique for the job at hand. The continuous ...
Detection of abnormal wear particles in hydraulic fluids via electromagnetic sensor and particle imaging technologies
Abstract Particle imaging, electromagnetic, ferrographic, and spectroscopic methods were used to evaluate hydraulic oil samples collected from machines known to be generating abnormal wear ...
