Particle measuring systems
Since 1992 the Klotz Company’s main activities have been in the development and manufacture of particle counters for measuring contamination in hydraulic oils, diesel and kerosene.
A further major application is the determination of residual contamination of complete mechanical units and components in flushing and cleaning machinery. The logging of residual contamination may be determined online or in the lab. For the validation of filter elements there are special sensors available as well as software packages for the evaluation of 2 sensors. Through the use of special opto-electronic components – especially in the area of laser technology – the LDS laser sensor can also be applied for the most demanding measuring tasks.
The double piston pump system (DPS) in the portable system Abakus® mobil fluid (Amf) as well as in the lab system PZG 4 provides the best feeding system for the medium. Klotz Company developed the pump system specifically for use in particle counting instruments. If the particle sensor is operated behind the double piston pump, it is possible to measure also very viscous oils up to 1500 mm˛/s with the mobile particle counter Abakus® mobile fluid or with the laboratory instrument for bottle samples. By the supply of the oil under high pressure errors caused by gas bubbles are strongly suppressed.
For online measurements, during which up to 256 size classes are determined simultaneously, there is a PC insert board available in connection with the PSS (pump sensor system) or with an individual sensor. For multi-pass applications and/or for the measuring of two sensors there are also software packages available. (SW-MP, SW-DS, SW-KS).
