The size and distribution of wear particle in lubricating oil, as important numerical information available in ferrography, is one of the key indexes in wear diagnosis. In this paper, a new method for measuring the size and distribution of abrasive particles is proposed. First, all the abrasive fluid is left standing until all the abrasive particles are precipitated to the bottom. Then, the measuring container is inverted and the whole precipitation process of abrasive particles is recorded by magnetic induction instrument. And according to the precipitation analysis of the wear particle, the following results were obtained:1) At the initial stage of the particle settlement, the gravity, the buoyancy and the drag force of the oil achieve balance quickly, the time and distance of the wear particle moving at a constant velocity can be neglected. 2) The settling velocity is related to the diameter and specific gravity of the wear particle as well as the specific gravity and viscosity of the oil, the distribution of the wear particle is proportional to the square of the diameter of the particle, using the magnetic induction technology, the distribution of particle can be measured by settling time for different sizes of wear particles. 3) Measure the wear particle oil directly, there are different sizes of particles settlement in the bottom at the same time, which causes the difficulty in identifying the size of the particle settlement. The particle should be settled first, and then inverted, settling the particle in accordance with the order from large to small, which facilitates the measurement of different sizes of the particles, different times correspond to different sizes of the particles. 4) The bigger the particle is, the more accurate the measurement and counting is, the smaller the particle is, the bigger the error is.
