The Ferrous Wear Meter (FWM) detects metal particles in oil samples taken from lubricated machinery. The FWM is constructed using a sophisticated magnetometer adapted for field applications but is a simple, easy-to-use, instrument that is accurate and reliable. This unit is ideal for testing and analysing oil samples on-board vessels, where full laboratory analysis is not possible. Features include:



  • Suitable for testing and analyzing oil samples on-board.
  • Simple, easy-to-operate, instrument requiring minimal training.
  • Immediate ferrous wear measurement in PPM on the LCD screen.




  • Reduced Operating Costs
  • Decreased Downtime
  • Reduced Scrape Down Oil Usage
  • Schedule Maintenance as Required
