A Metal Particle Detector requires the minimum of maintenance and no calibration. The detector consists of only 3 servicable parts which include 2 Viton® O ring seals and 1 metal sensing grid. Periodic inspection should take place when the equipment is being serviced. By installing a valve in the supply line to the detector, the detector can also be serviced and inspected without stopping the engine or equipment.

The 2 Viton® O rings seal do not require routine replacement unless damaged or hardened. The metal sensor should be inspected for signs of laquering or residue buildup. This would interfere with the sensing grids ability to detect metal particles and complete the electrical circuit.

After cleaning the sensing grid, use a multimeter to test the sensors ability to complete a circuit. Lubricate the O ring, re-insert the sensing grid ensuring it is fully seated into the electrical connections inside the body of the detector.


Prior to servicing or inspecting the detector, make sure all electricity is disconnected from the detector.

Ensure all process pressure is relieved from the detector's sensing grid compartment BEFORE removing the end cap.

No Calibration Required
