  • The Hub of Lubricant Monitoring

These are must-have products for any lubrication reliability program and they will have an instant impact!




Condition Monitoring Pod (CMP)

The Condition Monitoring Pod (CMP) is a multi-parameter device for expanding daily lubricant inspections. The CMP is a visible inspection window providing a method of inspecting machine health without the need for laboratory analysis. It includes:

  • a built-in oil sampling port,
  • an easy-to-remove magnetic plug,
  • a corrosion/ varnish inspection probe,
  • and quick lubricant access point for syringe sampling.


Best applications include:

  • gearboxes,
  • bearing oil sumps,
  • hydraulic reservoirs,
  • compressor oil reservoirs,
  • turbine-generator
  • main oil tanks and
  • paper machine central reservoirs.

The Bowl

The distinctive contour design allows for immediate visual inspection of the oil, along with early detection of potential contamination problems such as water and sediment. Providing a visual indication of wear debris while the machine is running, the Bowl’s rare earth magnetic drain plug also protects machinery by attracting and drawing wear particles to the bottom, proactively preventing machine failure and enabling a thorough drain of contaminates


Includes: Bowl, drain valve with optional magnet and adapter plate if required.

The Sight Glass

The Luneta Sight Glass modernizes the traditional view port and 3D bullseye sight glass. The Luneta Sight Glass is four times stronger than traditional acrylic sight glasses, shatterproof, chemically resistant and manufactured from an industry-exclusive Tritan™ copolyester, that is even stronger than bulletproof glass. This is a product that can take a beating, withstand harsh environments and endure temperature extremes while still providing you with the clearest view of the valuable oil condition information you need.


Of particular concern to maintenance professionals is durability, especially when the product will protrude from the machine on which it is installed. While any manufacturer can boast about providing an extremely tough, impact-resistant 3-D sight glass, Luneta can back it up. Research has been done and the designs were extensively tested to ensure their resilience. The result is a sight glass with durability that is second to none.


Durability Test Sight Glass (Acrylic - Polyamide - Luneta)





Acrylic, Polyamide and Luneta sight glasses were put to the durability test to answer a simple question, "Which one is built to last?" The results were very definitive. Seeing is believing, so don’t just take our word for it. Watch this video and see how the Luneta Sight Glass holds up against the competition!



The 360-degree viewing surface has no molded-in obstructions for effortless oil level and visual inspections. Etched crosshairs enable at a glance oil level checks without the possibility of the level marker fading or wearing off. The Luneta Sight Glass also features eyelets for attaching lubricant identification tags and a molded in hex nut for easy installation.
