Filter Patch and Magnetic Chip Detector Quantifier (FilPaQ)
When bearings and gears start to fail in a machine they shed metallic wear debris into the lubricant.
DST Group's Filter Patch and Magnetic Chip Detector Quantifier (FilPaQ) incorporates the latest commercial sensor technology in a system which:
- removes debris from a chip detector/collector or filter patch using sequenced compressed air
- quantifies the debris in terms of size and number
- re-captures the debirs for further composition analysis if desired.
The FiLPaQ system fills a gap in the analysis of gearbox engine systems, resulting in better condition monitoring and opportunities for prognostic health monitoring.
