Cosmos SDM-72 & SDM-73 Grease & Oil Steel Particle Analysers Package...Save $500 AUD


One of the most common causes of premature bearing and gear failure is the build-up of steel dust and abrasive particles in the lubricant, which over a period of time can slowly wear away the bearing’s internal structure or gearset. This increases friction and as a result will eventually cause the bearing or gearset to heat up beyond what it was designed for, which can eventually lead to an unexpected collapse of the bearing or gearset.

Early detection of bearing or gearset wear before vibration becomes apparent can potentially save hundreds of thousands of dollars in new bearings, gears and lost productivity.

Safegas Detection Equipment supplies specialised oil and grease detectors that analyse a small sample of the lubricant to detect small traces of steel dust and abrasives in the oil or grease.

The Cosmos SDM-72 and SDM-73 analysers are portable test instruments that allow oil and grease lubrication to be analysed on-site with results given within seconds. Safegas recommends analysing the bearing or gearset lubricant regularly to help monitor its condition and if necessary replace the lubricant in an effort to prolong the bearing or gearset life.
