MPS-1000 Metal Particle Sensor

It is an intelligent sensor designed for real-time detection of wear particles in both ferromagnetic and non-ferromagnetic in lubricating oil. It employs state-of-the-art multi-coil electromagnetic induction principles. Based on a highly reliable, high-sensitivity data sampling module, it simultaneously monitors particle attributes, size, distribution, quantity, concentration, quality, flow rate, and temperature. It provides comprehensive real-time monitoring of the lubrication and wear status of large industrial equipment.

The MPS-1000 is exceptionally powerful, offering users the following data for assessment:

  • Minimum detectable limit for ferromagnetic (Fe) particles: 40μm
  • Minimum detectable limit for non-ferromagnetic (NFe) particles: 150μm
  • Five to eight customizable size bands for both Fe and NFe particles
  • Accumulating counts of particles in each size band for Fe and NFe
  • Total accumulated counts of Fe and NFe particles
  • Concentration of Fe and NFe particles in ppm (mg/L) per minute
  • Mass of Fe and NFe particles in μg/h
  • Lubricant flow rate (m/s)
  • Internal sensor temperature (°C)
  • Total operating time (seconds)

By continuously monitoring the generation of wear debris and accurately analyzing increases in particle numbers within each size band, along with changes in concentration and mass over time, the MPS-1000 enables a clear and accurate understanding of equipment wear conditions. It alerts users to early signs of equipment failure or malfunction, allowing for more cost-effective maintenance measures compared to traditional scheduled inspection routines.

The MPS-1000 incorporates two sets of high-performance, reverse-wound excitation coils and two sets of high-performance sensing coils. Both sets of coils operate at resonance. When metal particles pass through the pipeline, changes in magnetic flux from the excitation coil are detected by the sensing coil. This signal undergoes processing through high-sensitivity sampling units, band-pass filters, phase and amplitude comparison units, signal amplification, low-pass filters, and signal extraction units to capture and report metal particle signals in real-time.

It has achieved detection capabilities for 40μm iron particles (Fe) and 150μm non-iron particles (NFe).
