Parker Kittiwake has achieved the America Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) standard for its Metallic Wear Debris Sensor (MWDS). The MWDS is fully compliant with the ASTM D7917-2014 standard of testing for metallic wear.

The presence of metallic debris in lubricating oil is an indication of wear within the system. ASTM D7917-2014 provides an independent third party standard which defines best practice in effective metallic wear detection. The Parker Kittiwake Metallic Wear Debris Sensor provides a real-time analysis of the size, number and composition of the particles passing through almost any lubrication system. Combining inductive coil technology with smart algorithms to provide a particle size distribution count, the sensor measures ferrous and non-ferrous metals within the lubricant. The MWDS is tailored to separate specifications suitable for both hazardous and non-hazardous applications. To allow for accurate and safe monitoring in hazardous environments, the sensor is certified for ATEX Zone 1 applications across a variety of platforms including wind turbines. The sensor can be easily integrated into existing condition monitoring and operating control systems with minimal impact on cost and time required for installation and maintenance.
