Direct Reading Ferrograph


Trico's newly, redesigned Direct Reading Ferrograph (DR-6) is even more compact, portable and easy-to-operate. It quantitatively measures the concentration of wear particles in oil, while also providing basic wear trend data to help determine equipment condition within minutes.

The DR-6 Ferrograph utilizes a better, more efficient magnetic gradient to trap and optically measure the amount of ferrous wear particles on a scheduled basis. The instrument also establishes the baseline wear level for any piece of equipment. Any sudden increase in the wear trend level alerts the user to potential problems prompting preventive actions.

The newly redesigned DR-6 features an interactive 7" LCD touch screen, and USB and Ethernet ports 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 FM-6 Ferrogram Maker and the FS-6 Ferroscope.
