Next level predictive maintenance

10 June 2024

GILL SENSORS & Control's WearDetect combines the company's market leading oil debris sensors with its new IoT data platform to provide seamless equipment oversight for confident asset management.

Gill’s WearDetect oil debris sensors reduce unplanned downtime by continuously monitoring ferrous wear debris in lubricating oil to give the earliest maintenance warnings. This real-time condition monitoring, right in the heart of the equipment, is made all the more powerful when combined with the ability to collect, visualise and analyse that data using the Gill IoT Platform.

WearDetect IoT also allows alerts to be configured from multiple assets and multiple locations and sent straight to your PC, phone or other device, providing insight into gearbox and rotating equipment health, at your fingertips.

The system provides enhanced data collection and analysis whereby data is assimilated from remote sensors in one simple-to-use platform; remote monitoring and control enabling timely maintenance; and scalability and flexibility – additional sensors can be added to the platform enabling systems to meet changing requirements.

WearDetect IoT offers real-time condition monitoring, precision sensing, trending data for predictive analysis, instant alerts and a user-friendly intuitive interface.

Typical applications include:

  • Industrial machinery – centralising wear data for rotating equipment allows maintenance professionals to pinpoint issues and minimise downtime.
  • Automotive production – visualising wear data provides clearer and earlier maintenance insights on production lines with numerous loaded gearboxes.
  • Cranes – heavily loaded critical gearboxes in hard to access locations benefit from remote wear monitoring.
  • Wind farms – supports wind turbine gearbox monitoring and proactive, data-informed maintenance scheduling.

All Gill products are solid state, with no moving parts for minimal maintenance and low cost of ownership.
