Luneta Launches New Lubricant Inspection Pod

Noria news wires

Luneta recently launched a new multi-parameter inspection device for modernizing and expanding daily lubricant inspections.

The Condition Monitoring Pod (CMP) is a visible inspection window that reveals critical health conditions of the lubricant and machine. Its proprietary design provides an improved method of inspecting the health of machinery without the need for laboratory analysis. The offering is part of the company’s plan to introduce a series of inspection-related products over the next few years.

With a platform of 16 capabilities, including 10 that are exclusive to the tool, the CMP features a built-in oil sampling port, an easy-to-remove-and-view magnetic plug, a corrosion/varnish inspection probe and a quick lubricant access point for syringe sampling.

Best applications include gearboxes, bearing oil sumps, hydraulic reservoirs, compressor oil reservoirs, turbine-generator main oil tanks and paper machine central reservoirs.

"We believe that Luneta has re-invented the sight glass by turning it into the focal point of machine condition monitoring," said Luneta CEO Tom Fitch. "The Condition Monitoring Pod makes oil analysis as simple as performing daily machine inspections. A sight glass should not be limited to simple oil level inspections. Instead, with the CMP, an array of critical machine and lubricant conditions can be examined in just seconds. And, it signals the beginning of Luneta’s vision to enhance machine reliability through the development of groundbreaking inspection technologies."
