The Parker iCountPD is a highly compact, permanently mounted laser detection particle monitor that enables continuous monitoring of contamination levels in hydraulic and fluid circuits. Capable of communicating results in ISO4406 / AS4059 or NAS1638.
Hydraulic fluid cleanliness plays a critical role in the performance and reliability of industrial equipment. Fluids with high levels of contamination and/or solid particulate matter can damage system components, such as pumps, actuators, or servo valves, leading to shorter maintenance intervals, added downtime, and increased costs.
The iCountPD from Parker is a highly compact, permanently mounted laser detection particle monitor designed for continuous monitoring of contamination and solid particulate levels in hydraulic fluid systems. The device represents the most up to date technology in solid particle contamination analysis and serves as a cost-effective solution to fluid management and condition monitoring in applications ranging from construction machinery, to industrial plant equipment, to test rigs. The iCountPD is available in three configurations to meet the unique requirements of customers’ applications. Options include: Standard iCountPD – The standard iCount PD is designed for test stand, flushing skids, filter carts and other industrial applications.
iCountPDR – The iCountPDR is designed for mobile equipment or any outside use other than hazardous environment.
iCountPDZ – The iCountPDZ is suited for applications that require a ATEX Zone II safety such as off-shore platforms or any other hazardous environment. For Zone I applications, the standard iCountPD can be used within a NEMA7 enclosure.
All iCountPD models feature an LED display, which uses three sets of lights for the indication of ISO 4406 / AS4059 and NAS1638 code figures. Individual code lights will trigger based on the customer settings. A moisture sensor is an option that can be included when specifying the icountPD. The moisture sensor reports on the saturation levels of the fluid passing through the sensing cell. The output is a linear scale, reporting within the range of 5% saturation to 100% saturation Increased flexibility is provided by an intuitive flow control device that fits on the downstream (outlet) side of the icountPD. The device is fitted with a differential pressure valve that adjusts the system flow to a range inside the icountPD specifications. The flow control device will operate correctly between 10.3 bar (150 psi) and 200 bar (2900 psi) and the return back to an open system of 0 bar.
For portable particle monitor devices, Parker offers the iCount LaserCM and the iCountOS. For additional information, consult the iCountPD documentation in the “Product Support” tab.
