Particle Counter

Particle counter for the remote on-site analysis of fluid samples – pressureless sampling and up to 420 bar system pressure testing

The PAMAS S40 is a portable particle counting system for oil-based liquids like hydraulic and lubricating oil. A wear resistant ceramic piston pump guarantees a constant flow. With a simple-to-use touch screen user interface, operation is easy and intuitive. The system is equipped with an integrated battery for up to three hours operation and data storage of up to 4000 measurements. The system can be used for batch sampling and online measurements. Additional accessories are available.
