Direct Read Ferrography
Quantitative measurement of the concentration of wear particles in oil.
 
Basic wear trend data to help determine equipment condition.

Analytical Ferrography
Study of Wear Metals
 
Slide holder accurately positions a slide at slight incline over a magnet, allowing particles to deposit from largest to smallest on a Ferrogram
 
Deposited pattern provides good resolution of large and small particles which facilitates a diagnosis of potential wear problems
 
Ferrogram prepared is observed under a microscope and images are then transferred and images are then transffed to PC and compared with Wear Particle Atlas.
