Gill to bring gearbox condition monitoring innovation to Seawork 2016
Exhibiting at Seawork International for the 3rd consecutive year, Gill Sensors & Controls will be introducing another new sensor technology on stand A18, which has been developed to provide insight into the health of gearbox and transmission systems.
The 4212 Industrial and Standard Oil Condition Monitoring Sensors are the latest products within the GScondition range to offer continuous real-time monitoring of ferrous wear and failure particles in oil. The sensors are well suited to a range of applications including vessel gearbox and transmission systems, motorsport vehicles and wind turbine gearboxes.
The Condition Monitoring Sensors feature three output channels to measure the most common modes of machinery failure – ferrous wear, water contamination and oil presence, to provide the earliest warning sign of potential catastrophic breakdown.
Solid particle contamination is a major cause of lubrication system breakdown, which can not only be costly to fix, but can result in very high recovery costs when unscheduled downtime occurs.
Through continuous real-time monitoring, the GScondition range provides an insight into the health of gearbox and transmission systems, allowing for planned investigation and repairs to be carried out before costly breakdown occurs. Furthermore the sensors provide a positive return on investment by helping to maximise equipment availability and optimise servicing.
Live demonstrations of the sensor will be carried out on stand A18 during Seawork from the 14th-16thJune 2016. For more information on the condition monitoring range visit gillsc.com/condition or call 01590 613900.
