Ferrogram Maker

Ferrogram Maker

Trico is pleased to introduce the new and improved Ferrogram Maker (FM-6). The FM-6 dual slide maker is used in the first step in Analytical Ferrography. For greater productivity, the FM-6 is designed with two independent stations allowing two samples to be prepared concurrently.

Each station includes a holder which accurately positions a slide at slight incline over a new improved, powerful magnet, allowing particles to deposit from largest to smallest on a Ferrogram. This deposition pattern provides good resolution of large and small particles which facilitates a diagnosis of potential wear problems. Ferrogram preparation can be done automatically, semi-automatically, or manually at the operator’s option. In the automatic mode, the sample is deposited on the Ferrogram at a carefully controlled rate. At the end of the sample deposition cycle, the wash cycle is automatically initiated, and an audio and visual signal indicates completion of the Ferrogram. The semi-automatic and manual modes provide flexibility and further operator control to perform unusual samples.

The newly, redesigned FM-6 features an interactive 7″ LCD touch screen, and USB and Ethernet port so you can easily plug in a keyboard, mouse, access useful reports on the web and connect it to our other Ferrography instruments like the newly redesigned DR-7 Direct Reading Ferrography and the FS-6 Ferroscope.
