1599 OIL DEBRIS SENSOR Condition Sensors



Ferrous particle contamination in oil is a major cause of failure in hydraulic and lubrication systems. It is also a very early indicator of excessive component wear or failure.

The Gill Oil Debris Sensor Kit attracts and retains the ferrous particles using a strong internal magnet. Not only does it remove the debris from the oil flow but it can differentiate and detect the type of contamination and the quantity. With two output channels for fine (wear) and coarse (failure) particles the sensor is able to continuously indicate the cleanliness of the oil and provide the earliest possible indication of component deterioration. 

Simple to install as a replacement sump plug, it has a high temperature operation and can play a pivotal role in helping to maintain plant and equipment availability and reduce unplanned downtime.
