The Spinner II Grid Switch wear detector provides early warning of excessive wear in lubricated machinery. The detector continuously monitors lubricating fluids for metal debris — the first sign of trouble when bearings, connecting rods and other metal parts begin to experience accelerated wear.
When sufficient wear debris is present, the Grid Switch detector triggers a user specified response. This response can be as simple as a warning lamp or audible alarm, or as sophisticated as an automated shutdown system. Early detection allows operators to perform proactive maintenance and avoid costly overhauls and downtime. A Grid Switch detector system is effective with most lubricated machinery, including engines, transmissions, gear boxes, turbines, compressors and pumps. For hazardous environments, an intrinsically safe monitor and metal particle detector are available.
