OEI magnetic filter elements can trap wear particles down to and below 1 micron in size. Paired with a robust holding strength and capacity, these filter elements can collect the tiniest of particles that ruin equipment.
This white paper describes how equipment fails and what may be done to improve overall reliability. The article identifies common mechanisms of failure: abrasion, corrosion, fatigue, adhesion, erosion, cavitation, electrical discharge, and deposition. Each mechanism has contributing factors, proactive measures, and affects various kinds of equipment. Several preferred non-intrusive monitoring techniques are identified to enable proactive and preventive efforts for improved reliability.
