Filtergram analysis uses the optical microscope to capture images of particles and determine the shape and size and determine types of metallic wear. The test analyses the larger particles that maintenance staff may find in oil and air filters, magnetic plugs and the lubricant. Such data will assist customers to employ actions before severe damage is caused to machinery.

Komatsu Oil and Wear Analysis (KOWA®) is the spearhead of our Condition Monitoring Services (CMS). Your equipment is the lifeblood of your business and KOWA® works like a blood test for your machine. There are normal wear rates for each moving component and as these parts wear particles appear in the oil. These particles are small but easily detected through regular KOWA® use. Continued and consistent KOWA® use will provide a clear picture of your machine’s health, potentially saving you time and money.
