Integrated Dilution System

S50DP Particle Counter

09.04.2015 Pamas has developed a new particle counter: the Pamas S50DP. With its integrated dilution system, this online particle counter automatically dilutes dark sample fluids prior to measurement and thus reduces the sample's turbidity level.

The pump provides a constant flow rate of 25 ml/min at a pressure range from 0 to 6 bar (Picture: Pamas)

The device is equipped with a wear-resistant ceramic piston pump. The pump provides a constant flow rate of 25 ml/min at a pressure range from 0 to 6 bar. With its eight different size channels, the device counts particles in eight size classes. The instrument measures the particle sizes > 4 µm(c), > 6 µm(c), > 10 µm(c), > 14 µm(c), > 21 µm(c), > 25 µm(c), > 38 µm(c) and > 70 µm(c). The integrated Pamas HX particle sensor is calibrated in compliance with the ISO 11171 standard, and it measures sample fluids with a maximum concentration of up to 24,000 particles/ml at a coincidence quote of 7.8 %. For data transfer, the user has the choice between digital and analogue interfaces. A RS485 data interface is part of the instrument‘s standard equipment for digital data transfer free from interference. The optional analogue 4…20 mA channel transmits data to a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller). This interface function makes it an effective instrument for condition monitoring. The online particle counter is well suited for the analysis of fuel containing free water as well as highly contaminated liquids.
