Abstract : Wear particle technology is a recent development in the equipment wear field. This technology is based on the analysis of wear debris as a nondestructive reflection of the surface wear condition of the respective monitored wear process. Such a monitoring approach can be applied to everything from simple wear testing to sophisticated multicomponent wear systems. Wear particle analysis technology is rapidly establishing itself as a valuable tool in both the wear prevention and wear control arenas. (Author)
