PCM200 series Fluid Cleanliness Monitor

The Pall PCM200 Fluid Cleanliness Monitor is a cost effective monitoring device that provides accuarate, reliable assessment of system fluid cleanliness.
  • Proven filter/mesh blockage technology (ISO 21018 Pt.3)
  • Performance is not affected by water, air or opaque fluids
  • Monitors dissolved water content as % saturation or ppm for specific fluids (PCM200W only)
  • On-Line (low pressure, < 2 bar/29 psi) or off-line analysis
  • Continuous monitoring capability
  • Stores up to 500 test results
  • Viscosity output in centistokes (cSt)
  • Remote control and data acquisition via PC, PLC or optional hand-held display
  • PC-based trending software included

Benefits

As part of continued component cleanliness 'pass off' checks or predictive maintenance programs, the PCM200 Fluid Cleanliness Monitor reports test data in real-time, so that ongoing assessments can be made.

Early detection of abnormal fluid cleanliness allows for timely investigation and corrective actions to be implemented. The PCM200 Fluid Cleanliness Monitor can be permanently installed on critical applications (including component test facilities) or used as a portable device for routine condition monitoring of various fluid systems.

The PCM200 Fluid Cleanliness Monitor has been designed for operators who require a cost effective, simple to use, low-pressure monitor. It can also be laboratory based or integrated into OEM equipment.

A key benefit of PCM cleanliness monitors is that they can be used on fluids that are not suitable for use with traditional Automatic Particle Counters; results are not affected by water, air or opaque fluids.

Features

The front facia user interface contains 4 LEDs (indicating power, standby/testing, sampling and hardware issues) and 2 buttons (on/off and test start). There are also two RS232 communication ports for 'hand-held' display or PC connection, or for PLC interface using an integrated protocol.

An optional 'hand-held' display allows simple menu driven inputs for sample identification, monitor configuration and data output in ISO4406, SAE AS4059 Table 1 (previously NAS1638) or SAE AS4059 Table 2 formats.

The display shows real-time data and test results, which are automatically stored for trending and evaluation. Data can also be displayed on a remote PC or PLC using simple ASCI II commands.
