AvCount Lite Particle Counter, SA1800-0

The AvCount Lite particle counter provides reliable results for determining the particle concentration in liquid fuels and oils, including aviation fuel cleanliness to Defence Standard 91-091.

• Simple operation
• Portable, compact instrument
• Under 4 minute test time
• Programmable via PC

The portable particle counter features a simple test procedure and user-friendly features, 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:  ASTM D6786, ASTM D7619, ASTM D7647, ASTM D975, GJB 420-1987/420-A-1996/420B-2006, IP 565, ISO 4406

Precision & Accuracy AvCount Lite is fitted with a precision dual piston pump. When measuring samples from a bottle, the pump draws an aliquot 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
