Universal measuring microscope UIM-21

Universal measuring microscopeUIM-21 is designed for measuring lengths, angles, parameters of external and internal coils, tool control, objects of complex configuration, measuring wear traces.

Particle quantifier PQ2000

PQ 2000 (Particle Quantifier 2000) device is designed to assess the number of metal particles in oil sample. Quick test takes about 10 seconds. Carbon materials do not affect the assessment of number of metal particles. Oil sample is exposed to magnetic field, the presence of metal particles causes’ violation of the field which is presented as PQ index. Range of particles detection is from 1 to 2000 μm. It is primarily designed for testing of hydraulic and lubrication oils.

Rotary particle depositor

R.P.D. (Rotary Particle Depositor) provides simple and quick way of isolating wear products in oil by magnetic method and thus the samples are obtained that could be later on additionally tasted under microscope. RPD combines magnetic and centrifugal method of separating wear products. Rotary speed is 0-200 o/min. Wide range of particles size that could be isolated, is practically from 1 to 2000 μm. Time necessary for deposition and preparation of sample for analysis under microscope is about 6 min. It is suitable for testing of lubrication and hydraulic oils and lubricants.
