The AvCount2 portable particle counter determines the particle distribution in a liquid sample, whether checking the quality of fuel, filter systems or in service lubricants.

• Precise and reliable
• Simple operation using the touchscreen display and straight from the bottle samples
• Portable
• Particle count and cleanliness code

15 test methods are preset within the AvCount2 with particle counting results delivered fast.

The compact design of AvCount2 makes it ideal for use in your laboratory, whilst the portable build suits the production line or portable test applications.

Additional Information

Automatic Test Sequence
The AvCount2 is fully automatic once the particle count test sequence is started. The flushing/sample analysing sequences are automatically repeated in accordance with the selected test method for precise results.

Results Analysis
Results are shown for 6 particle size bands in Particles/ml and ISO Code. Results are stored within the internal memory, with space for up to 2000 sets of results. For analysis, you can print results from the integral printer or downloaded to a USB.
