AvCount Lube Particle Counter, SA1900-0

The AvCount Lube particle counter determines particle concentration in oils with a viscosity up to 200 mm2/s. FFKM seals have been fitted to resist aggressive oils.

• Simple operation
• Ideal for handling lubricating and hydraulic oils
• 3 minute test time
• Programmable via PC

With a simple test procedure and user-friendly features, operator skill or expertise is kept to a minimum.

AvCount Lube can hold up to 3 test methods with custom methods created on a PC before being uploaded using the supplied ProTrend control and analysis software.

Test progress and results for up to 6 size bands are displayed as cumulative particles/ml and ISO 4406, NAS 1638, AS4059 cleanliness codes.

Methods:  ASTM D7619, ASTM D7647, GJB 420-1987/420-A-1996/420B-2006, IP 565, ISO 4406, ISO 60970

Integral Compressor AvCount Lube comprises a light extinction automatic particle counter and a sample delivery unit. Designed to handle samples with a viscosity up to 200 mm2/s, the AvCount Lube has an integral compressor that pressurises the sample chamber to 3bar.

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

ProTrend SA1810-0 can report results to ISO 4406, NAS 1638 and SAE AS4059 (tables 1 and 2) cleanliness codes. Using the software, you can program other test methods and cleanliness codes with up to 16 size bands.
