Parker Hannifin’s latest Icount ACM20 particle counter is now included as test equipment for the determination of dispersed contamination in jet fuel in line with the Defstan 9191 specification.

In accordance with the UK’s Energy Institute IP 564 test method, the portable device analyses hydrocarbon and aviation turbine fuels quickly and accurately.

Following the Defstan inclusion, the Icount ACM20 can now be used in place of traditional and often subjective methods of measuring contamination levels in jet fuels, such as the Clear and Bright Visual test method (IP216 or ASTM D2276) and the Gravimetric test method (IP423 or ASTM D5452).

The unit is used to detect contamination invisible to the naked eye down to 4 microns in size, which can be self generated as a result of water contamination causing rust or the ingress of solids through tanks vents, open storage vessels or as a result of wear of mechanical systems.

Using light obscuration technology, the particle counter produces accurate and reliable test results within two minutes.

When used in the laboratory, the Icount ACM20 uses a case-mount pump to draw a test sample into the machine.

When used in the field, it can be connected directly to an existing sample point using a supplied quick-connect fitting up to a maximum of 420bar pressure.

The test results are stored on an internal memory and can be viewed on the handset LCD screen and subsequently downloaded to a PC or laptop via an RS232 connection for further analysis.

The Icount ACM20 features a number of self-diagnostic failsafe checks to ensure the integrity of sampling and final results.

The memory is capable of storing 300 test results that can be used for product trend analyses, statistical records for routine maintenance procedures or proof or product cleanliness at point of transfer.

Parker, a provider of motion and control technologies, also offers the Icount ACM in an ATEX-approved stainless-steel enclosure for use in hazardous environments.
