The field portable CONPAR fluid condition monitoring system provides fast and accurate assessment of particulate contamination in fluids allowing appropriate action to be taken promptly, enhancing the life and reliability of the equipment. Throughout the world, in oilfields, in manufacturing plants, on airfields and on board ships, wherever the protection of critical components in fluid systems is required CONPAR is the low cost solution of choice.

The long established comparison method is at the heart of the CONPAR fluid condition monitoring system. First a metered sample is taken from the fluid system using the CONPAR Field Fluid Sampling Set. The sample is then transferred to a specimen slide for analysis using the microscope from the CONPAR Particle Comparison Kit. By comparing the sample with a calibrated Master Slide any differences in the density of contamination are readily apparent and the cleanliness of the fluid system is established.

G_C Analysis
Gravimetric/Colormetric Analysis

The Field Sampling set can also be used to to take samples for either Gravimetric or Colormetric analysis, commonly used for sampling aviation fuels.

Samples can be returned to AMETEK Aircontrol Technologies labarotory for analysis if required.
