More Efficient MRO with New Parker Particle Detector
Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technology, has developed an innovative particle detector, designed to increase the efficiency and cut the cost of maintenance, repair and overhall applications. The Icount PD on-line analyser offers simple integration with existing plant via M16 test points, making fast and accurate cleanliness monitoring of lubricants and similar fluids more affordable and accessible than ever.
The Icount PD uses innovative laser particle detection technology to produce repeatable and reproducible results, offering calibration by recognised on-line methods supported by international standards organisation procedures. The unit is compact and robust, making it ideal for use in a wide range of factory and industrial applications.
The innovative device provides a compact, integrated solution for extending the life of systems, and is extremely simple to use. For example, the instrument features LED indicators to show internationally recognised thresholds, and can optionally be fitted with a further LED for moisture detection.
The Icount PD can be retrofitted simply and cost effectively, providing a wide range of output options that make it easy to interface with plant automation and process control systems. These options include LAN, RS232 and CANBUS connectivity, 4-20mA and 0-5V analogue outputs, and relay contacts which can switch 5A at up to 24V dc.
Parker's on-line particle detector makes extensive use of environmentally friendly glass-filled nylon materials, and carries an IP66 ingress protection rating. The device has a minimum sample time of 3 seconds, can be used at flow rates from 10 to 160 ml/min, and at line pressures from 2 to 420 bar
