MetalAlert® - Metal Particle Detector is an extremely simple device, with no moving parts. Fluid enters the top port of the detector. It then travels downwards through the perforated metal sensor containing the electrical grid. The fluid then exits through the bottom port and returns to the engine sump or oil reservoir.

Normal wear particles pass through the perforations.  Detection of metal particles occurs when larger metal particles settle on the metal sensor which consists of two interposed circuits. When the metal particles are on the two interposed circuits, the gap is bridged between the two grids and the circuit is complete. By connecting the detector to our MetalAlert® Controller, an alarm or shutdown can be immediately activated.
