Portable PPM measurement unit for use on diesel fuels
and oils. Gives water content levels of real time PPM.
Built in rechargeable battery and pump.
Real time measurement and display of water in parts per million (ppm) suitable for fuels and oils.
A compact field kit with built in pump gives live water content levels for accurate, repeatable measurement of parts per million (ppm). The water sensor at the heart of the PPM Pal measures the absorbed water content in hydraulic oils, mineral and silicon based oils, bio based oils and diesel fuels.
• Real Time PPM measurement
• Temperature compensation
• Long-term stability
• Continuous monitoring (inline measurement)
• Calibrated against Karl Fisher titration (ASTM D1533) up to the point of total saturation
• Built in rechargeable battery and pump
Why is water level measurement so important?
Most oils and fuels have a maximum allowable water content level. When water levels exceed this value, whether as emulsified, entrained or free water, moisture related problems are inevitable.
With diesel, the maximum allowable water content level is 200ppm. When high water content is present, a series of problems may occur:
• Fuel Oxidation
• Formation of paraffin and asphalt long chain polymers
• Microbial growth and associated contamination
• Additive depletion
• Acid formations
• Gel Formations

Product overview: The Particle Pal is a self-contained system, complete with integral pump and governed flow rate. Whether on-site or in the laboratory, the Particle Pal will provide instant cleanliness readings to allow you to fully understand the condition of your oils and fuels. Samples from oil and fuel tanks or sample bottles can be analysed quickly and accurately, thereby minimising the frequency of laboratory analysis. This pro- active maintenance approach is ideal for sites with multiple fuel tanks, thereby making the Particle Pal the ultimate survey and diagnostic unit. Powerful trending software will allow for data to be displayed in graphical format for real-time trend analysis. The Particle Pal will identify the cleanliness code of the fuel, which will alert to the need for corrective action. The Particle Pal is the most cost effective fuel cleanliness monitor on the market.
Fuel Monitoring: Modern fuels with ever increasing biofuel percentages, have created several challenges to industry in recent years. Fuel blends are highly hygroscopic which enables them to absorb greater amounts of moisture. This in turn leads to higher levels of microbiological activity which are seriously troublesome to fuel systems. The Particle Pal will allow you to quantify the level of solid contamination in your fuel and will alert you to the presence of high moisture levels and diesel bug.
Oil Testing: In Hydraulic and Lubrication systems, real time cleanliness data can prevent serious system failure and component damage. By trending oil cleanliness in real time, the necessary protection can be put in place to protect sensitive components. Samples can be taken directly from the reservoir of fluid power systems or from a oil sample taken from the system.
The Particle Pal will allow you to accurately measure the cleanliness of your stored fuels. By gaining an insight into oil and fuel cleanliness in real time, an informed decision can be made as to whether the oil and fuel needs filtration. Eliminating contamination will increase machine efficiency, reduce engine wear and reduce maintenance costs
