Many hydraulic fluids, fuels, and lube oils need to be monitored for cleanliness according to standards such as ISO 4406 or NAS 1638. While the available laser-based solutions are good at counting particles, they cannot tell the difference between "dust" particles and water droplets.
FlowCam can differentiate between particles and droplets, plus captures particle images, so you can get an indication of the particle types present (solids, fibers, or organics). Then report particle counts and concentrations by size range according to the specified standard.
Regardless of the size of range that is the most interest to you, FlowCam can handle particle counts and concentrations from 2 um up to 2000 um. FlowCam also also works just as easily in oil-based fluids or water-based fluids.
Within a few minutes, you will get concentration data (particles/mL or PPM) and summary statistics on a variety of shape parameters using FlowCam's VisualSpreadsheet® software.
FlowCam enables monitoring of all your fluids to ensure they meet your quality specifications and industry accepted standards.
