Webinar Description:
Root cause failure analyses frequently finds wrecked gears and bearings fail without warning due to severe sliding and fatigue. These sudden unpredicted failures disrupt production, divert critical resources, cause production losses, and very costly.
These abnormal wear mechanisms destroy functionality of load bearing rotating components over time and in stages: benign, severe, advanced, catastrophic. During the benign stage, wear particles are small (5 microns) and mostly surface metal oxide, not metal. During the three abnormal stages, large particles from base metal are progressively removed from component parts.
Oil analysis measuring PPM for large wear metal debris supports early detection, identification, and severity determination essential for planned repairs during planned downtime. MiniLab and FieldLab systems, with total ferrous measurement or X-ray fluorescence multi-element PPM, are capable of measuring abnormal wear particles from microns to millimeter size ranges.
