LNF Q200 Particle Counter & Ferrous Content Analyzer

Fast, accurate particle count and shape classification in lubricants, fuels and similar liquids.

  1. General Details

    The Spectro LNF Q200 series applies the world’s best oil particle counter technology.  With an intuitive, configurable GUI and no calibration required, the Q200 series is fast, accurate and easy to use.

    Sample preparation is efficient with the LNF. Viscosities up to 320 cSt can be processed without dilution due to the wide dynamic range. And unlike conventional light blockage particle counters, there are no flow control valves that need adjusting when testing different sample viscosities.

    The advanced design makes it much more than just a particle counter: The LNF also calculates free water in ppm, and differentiates contaminants. Several models are available providing particle counts and codes, abnormal wear classification and ferrous wear measurement.

    Classification of Wear Particle Shape

    LNF Q200 directly images wear particle silhouettes, and counts and classifies wear particles over 20 microns as cutting wear, sliding wear, fatigue wear, nonmetallic or fibers. This allows operators to determine the type of wear debris, wear mode and potential source from internal machinery components.

    Ferrous Content Measurement

    Ferrous wear measurement is a critical requirement for monitoring machine condition. The high sensitivity magnetometer measures and reports ferrous content in ppm/ml, and provides ferrous particle count and size distribution for large ferrous particles. The in-line design of the magnetometer with the LNF flow cell enables measurement of both ferrous content and total particle count on the same sample, eliminating the need to measure Ferrous content on another instrument.

    Models Available:

    • SpectroLNF- Q210: LNF Particle counter.
    • SpectroLNF -Q220: LNF Particle counter with wear particle shape classifier.
    • SpectroLNF- Q230: LNF Particle counter, automatic shape classifier, and ferrous monitoring with a magnetometer.
