Abstract:

A new computerized wear particle atlas has been developed for identification of solid particles and differentiation of wear severity of lubricated equipment. This atlas contains 892 images of representative solid particles selected from thousands of filtergram and ferrogram slides, enabling to cover diverse ferrous, nonferrous and contaminant particles in used lubricants. The unique wear severity differentiation atlas, which combines measurable particle parameters with comparable particle images, significantly benefits standard wear particle analysis.
