Eye Mag is a new innovative company inspired by Nick Perich a professional truck driver with many years of experience, who had witnessed, first hand, an incident where a wheel had flown off a trailer, causing severe injuries and damages. Our goal is to prevent these types of accidents from happening, in hopes to save lives, equipment and cargo.
Eye Mag is the first known preventative maintenance safety detector device for oil hub assemblies on tractor trailers. We believe that the Eye Mag unit will revolutionize the trucking industry.
Gear oil in wheel hubs works best when it is uncontaminated. Continuous friction in a wheel hub creates tiny metal particles that contaminate the oil. There is no way to catch these particles in wheel hubs because there is no way to install an oil filter on the hub assembly. Over time these metal particles are circulated millions of times throughout the hub wheel bearing assembly. Installing a magnet in the flow of the oil in the hub removes smaller metal particles. It is less likely that you will experience oil oxidation, as the metal particles that contribute to the process of oxidation will adhere to the magnet in the wheel hub. It is also an indicator if a bearing is starting to break down in a wheel hub by seeing metal particles on the magnet as it is checked on regular bases.
