AvCount Lite for Skydrol, SA1805-0

The AvCount Light SA1805-0 has been specifically designed to measure the particulate of Skydrol hydraulic fluid.

Skydrol is an advanced fire resistant aviation hydraulic fluid which inhibits corrosion and prevents erosion damage to servo valves. It has been approved by most airframe manufacturers including Airbus, Boeing and BAE Systems and has been used in their products for over 40 years.

Due to the highly corrosive nature of Skydrol material this special version of the AvCount is fitted with Isolast seals and a protective inner case.

With a simple test procedure and sub 4 minute test time, operator skill or expertise is kept to a minimum.

AvCount Lite can hold up to 3 test methods with custom methods created on a PC before being uploaded.

Test progress and results for up to 6 size bands are displayed as cumulative particles/ml and ISO 4406 cleanliness codes.

Methods: AS 4059, ASTM D6786, ASTM D7619, ASTM D7647, ASTM D975, DEF STAN 91-86, DEF STAN 91-91, GB 5930, GJB 420-1987/420-A-1996/420B-2006, GOST 17216, IP 565, ISO 4406, NAS 1638, SAE 749D, SAE A6D

Precision & Accuracy AvCount Lite is fitted with a precision dual piston pump. When measuring samples from a bottle, the pump draws an aliqot of sample through the measurement cell at a consistent flow rate. When connected to a pressurized line, the pump provides accurate metering and control. A pressure reduction system is available for applications above 10 bar.

Calibration & Verification AvCount Lite utilizes 16 point calibration. Calibration can be carried out either using NIST traceable standard solutions or by interfacing with a primary calibrated ‘Master’ AvCount Lite. Calibration can be carried out at a user site or at our authorized regional laboratories
