I am a chemical Engineer working on developing methods to optimise- setting of wear metal alarm limits as described by following articles in practicing oil analysis Magazine:
1.Use Statistical Analysis to Create Wear Debris Alarm Limits By
Jonathan Sowers, POLARIS Laboratories, LLC
2.Statistically Derived Rate-of-Change Oil Analysis Limits and Alarms By
Drew Troyer and Mark Barnes
At present i am doing the preliminary search in understanding how OEM's develop these wear metal alarm limits. If somebody can give links on web or suggest papers/books on these (or other similar) methods for setting alarm limits (with the help of Statistical tools) that would be of great help.
Thanking in advance.
