The company’s icount LaserCM30 Particle Contamination Monitor is now available and can provide test results in 90 seconds
The Hydraulic and Industrial Process Filtration Division of Parker Hannifin has announced the launch of its icount LaserCM30 Particle Contamination Monitor. The company states that the monitor is a user-friendly field diagnostic device that provides service personnel with the capability to quickly and easily assess the cleanliness of the hydraulic fluid or oil in a wide range of applications. These include excavators, reach stackers, wheeled loaders, drilling equipment and steering equipment as well as machinery used in shop floor applications.
The Parker icount LaserCM30 offers test procedures in under 90 seconds with multi standard ISO 4406, NAS 1638, AS4059 & GOST cleanliness reporting, data entry and integral printing all featured on the unit.
With microprocessor-controlled optical scanning, the icount LaserCM30 provides accurate contaminant measurement with a calibration range from ISO 0 to ISO 22 with no monitor saturation. The particles are measured by a photo diode that converts light intensity to a voltage output, which is recorded against time. As the particle moves across the window, the amount of light lost is proportional to the size of the particle. This reduction in voltage is measured and stored in the icount LaserCM30 computer in one of six channels according to particle size. Additional sizes are calculated for reference purposes. Readouts are displayed on the hand-held LCD in the accepted ISO/AS and NAS standards ready for hard copy printing or RS232 computer download. The on-board computer allows storage of up to 1000 test results.
Parker says that the icount LaserCM30 is compact, user-friendly easy to use, and that operating the device is as simple as pressing the start button on the handset. Special diagnostics are incorporated into the units’ microprocessor control and contamination monitoring is also now possible during application operation, reducing production downtime.
