Ferroscope – Wear Debris Analysis (Ferrography)

The Ferroscope FS-6 analytical ferrography optical microscope is specially assembled by Trico with attachments and options that enhance particle identification and interpretation. The Ferroscope FS-6 comes with three magnification powers -100x, 500x, 1,000x. A technician can scan a Ferrogram quickly at low power looking for obvious abnormal particles, interpret particle origin and wear mechanism at 500x, and gain more insight into stress directions at 1,000x.

The Ferroscope FS-6 is equipped with reflective and transmitted light sources so that a Ferrogram can be illuminated from above and below. A red light source illuminated above the Ferrogram causes the light to be reflected off particles and a green light source below the Ferrogram causes light to be transmitted. Any metallic particles will reflect light and non-metallic particles will transmit light.

  • Field of view is 50% greater than previous ferroscopes, optics are infinity corrected eliminating focus problems
  • Light source powers are increased in intensity over past models allowing better definition and much better photography (photomicroscopy)
  • Tri-nocular system allows the addition of cameras, including video, and digital photography (microscopy)
  • Bi-chromatic light (two light sources, reflected and transmitted) for identifying metallic versus non-metallic debris
  • Three magnification powers; 100x, 500x, and 1000x enable rapid scanning to minute detailing
  • Red and green light filters aid in identification of particle
  • Polarizer and analyzers help identify particulate and fibrous contamination
  • Ergonomic design enables analyst to rest arms on table while adjusting focus
  • Capture wear debris images with the Ferroscope Digital Camera
