What is the Magnetic chip detector?
Magnetic Chip Detector (MCD):
Magnetic Chip detectors (MCDs) detect the metal chips, chips, or particles in aircraft engine lubrication systems, hydraulic systems, and gearboxes. The presence of metal particles could indicate that the item is worn. Magnetic Chip detectors can signal the need for maintenance or give an early warning of impending failure. Magnets get integrated into an electronic circuit in MCDs. The magnets attract and accumulate metal particles until the circuit is closed. It results in a distant indicator that chips have been identified, such as a caution light on an instrument panel.
Condition monitoring using Magnetic Chip detectors and iron wear particle analysis is a significant diagnostic tool. Individual Magnetic Chip detectors samples get submitted for evaluation of a specific problem, or samples are collected over time to generate a baseline for use as a proactive maintenance tool. Machinery component (s) degradation and wear rates can be tracked by trending quantitative debris analysis data over time.
Knowing these important qualities allows one to make maintenance decisions confidently. Knowing that, we will perform the necessary procedures to avoid critical machinery’s fatal breakdowns.
What is the purpose of a Magnetic Chip Detector?
Chip Detectors are little devices installed in engine oil filters, oil sumps, and airplane drivetrain gears. Minor metal chips come off from engine parts and flow into the engine oil over time due to use.
Magnets get combined into an electric circuit in the sensor. Ferrous elements get drawn to magnetic lines of force. The particles assemble themselves until the insulated air gap between the magnets (two-magnet design) or between the magnet. The housing (one magnet configuration) is connected, closing the circuit.
The outcome is an electronic signal that can help indicate distance. As a result, a warning light on the instrument panel illuminates, indicating the presence of metal chips.
Magnets and an electric circuit get housed in the sensor. Iron elements get drawn to magnetic lines of force. The particles assemble themselves until the insulated air gap between the magnets (two magnet design) or between the magnet, and the housing (one magnet configuration) is linked, thus closing the circuit. The result is an electronic signal that can help indicate a distance.
As a result, the instrument panel’s cautionary light illuminates, indicating the presence of metal chips. Magnetic Chip detectors can be installed in the application using a bayonet or threaded interface and an automatically closing valve/adapter. The valve closes when the chip detector is disengaged from the valve, minimizing any fluid damage to the system.
Each ‘A check’ and above inspects the chip detectors used on airplanes. Intermissions can also be specified, for example, every 30–40 hours for an engine unit and every 100 hours for an APU unit.
Analysis of a Magnetic Chip Detector:
We can also create an Entry Stage to allow the removal and evaluation of ferromagnetic waste collected by a magnetic chip detector. Aviation gear can commonly utilize magnetic chip detectors. However, most of the time, the caught debris is assessed by a crude periodic eye inspection and comparison to the manufacturer’s size limitations.
The horizontal nozzle of the chip detector utilized in the prototype is offset from the magnetic region’s centerline to ensure it impinges on the debris collection area. After that, the Magnetic We can manually turn chip detectors to eliminate all ferromagnetic material.
A Magnetic Chip detector has a surface adapted to get exposed to liquid. We need to remove electrically conducting and magnetically inductive material from that surface. Said collector comprises two spaced electrically conducting elements exposed on said surface. A permanent magnet formed of electrically insulating material will present a face exposed to said surface. And it bridges the space between said elements while electrically isolating said elements.

A permanent Magnetic Chip detector with two spaced pole pieces exposed on said surface, one of which is formed of ferrous metal. The other of which is comprised of magnetically permeable but electrically insulating material.
A non-magnetic electrically conducting element extends across the space between the said ferrous metal pole piece and said electrically insulating pole piece. An electrically conducting member is exposed when a bridging accumulation of electrically conducting material occurs on the exposed surface of the said electrically insulating pole piece. Said member cooperates with said element to complete an electrically conducting channel extending from said member to said ferrous metal pole piece.
