Analysis of the wear metals (microscopic metal particles produced when two metal surfaces rub against each other) and other contaminants (dust, water, additives - even wrong oil grade) within the lubricant will reveal any deteriorating internal components. Monition's tribology services can pinpoint the source of wear metals (bearings, gears, clutch plates etc), trend the wear rate of the deteriorating internal component and advise when maintenance needs to be scheduled to prevent a breakdown in service.
