Mobile Tester: Laser Particle Counter in Wheelie Case

Mobile Tester: Laser Particle Counter in Wheelie Case

(Werdohl, January 2010)

At the bauma 2010 to be held in Munich in April, Walter Stauffenberg present a Laser Particle Counter. The LasPaC II is an 8-channel double laser particle counter by Stauff that records the dirt content in mineral oil-based hydraulic fluids in the pressure range between 2 and 420 bar. With the aid of an additional “bottle sampler” it is also possible to analyse previously taken samples with this equipment. There are three new versions: the LasPaC II-P in its robust plastic wheelie case holds everything needed for measuring as well as the extras for controlling the test and is ideal for mobile assignments. Sales engineer Thorsten Kinkel explains: “This is an all-in measuring device which is exceptionally easy to use. Thanks to its wheels, it can be conveniently moved to its place of operation”.  The same functions are provided by the more economical LasPaC Type M, which does not require a printer or keyboard; an external power-pack is optionally available. The common denominator on these two devices is that they come in a storm case, an extra-strong case made of special plastic. An added advantage is that the oil samples do not have to make any long journeys.
The third version is more suitable for installing in machines and plant. Measuring results can be retrieved from the LasPaC II Inline by computer via an RS 232 interface.  All LasPaC II devices have an internal data memory for around 600 tests. Stauff also supply the relevant software for selectively analysing the measurements. Designer Oliver Wagner: “Companies that operate several Stauff laser particle counters can also use the software to follow the trends on all the devices, consequently achieving made-to-measure condition monitoring.”
