New Product: Parker's icountBSplus

Maritime Reporter & Engineering News
Thursday, May 30, 2013

Motion and control technology specialists, Parker Hannifin, recently introduced the compact, icountBSplus. The icountBSplus is a fully contained, portable bottle sampling system that uses laser particle counting technology to ensure fast and accurate detection of contamination in hydraulic oils and hydrocarbon fuels.
The icountBSplus is designed to help improve the reliability, productivity and profitability of key equipment and processes. It is CE compliant and fully accredited to all particle-counting standards. Its portability and ease of use enables it to be used for portable contamination testing in a wide range of industry sectors including marine and oil and gas.
The laser particle counting technology and user interface can deliver results in as little as 15 seconds. A front-loading sample bottle chamber provides a controlled environment where every sample is degassed using suppressed, clean air prior to delivery to the measurement cell via a fixed displacement pumping system. This helps eliminate many of the variables associated with traditional methods of contamination monitoring. An integrated relative humidity moisture sensor reports on the water content in the sample being tested. An additional sensor provides accurate temperature monitoring while an external fluid supply adaptor facilitates sampling from a hydraulic pressure line.
A high-resolution touch-screen makes setup quick and simple with the ability to control the stylus and set test parameters.
