The Amot Controls MPD metal detector signals the presence of metal particles, chips or dust in lubricating fluids due to bearing wear or other engine part problems. It comes as standard in aluminium, but a stainless steel version is also available for use in hazardous locations. Its âuniqueâ? grid sensing technology detects all conductive materials, including non-metallic particles, in non-conductive fluid lubrication systems. It is easily installed in a side stream of the lube oil/fluid on reciprocating equipment such as gas or diesel engines and reciprocating or rotating compressors, pumps, turbines, transmissions and gearboxes. Used either with Amot’s MPD controller or an appropriate alternative controller, it converts maintenance into a continuously predictive rather than reactive process.
