LPC 500 Liquid Particle Counter

The LPC 500™ Liquid Particle Counter is a single particle optical sizing (SPOS) system designed to count and size particles individually with high resolution. When used for in-service oil samples, only 4 mL of 10x diluted samples are typically needed, offering reproducible results between high- and low-viscosity samples, while also minimizing washout requirements and solvent waste. The LPC 500:

  • Integrates seamlessly with ICP-OES for elemental analysis
  • Provides sample-to-sample analysis time of ~45 seconds
  • Uses less than 1 mL of lubricant sample per analysis
  • Boasts the smallest footprint of any standalone automated particle counter

Overview

The LPC 500 Liquid Particle Counter consists of three components – an optical sensor, a multi-channel pulse analyzer (MPA), and a software controller – and is available in two configurations:

  • A patent-pending option coupling the LPC 500 counter with the Avio® 500 ICP-OES Oils system, enabling the same diluted sample to be analyzed for both wear metals and particle counting/sizing, so two analyses in a single run. Plus, all features and data outputs for the LPC 500 system have been integrated into Syngistix for ICP software, leveraging one software platform for both analyses.
  • A standalone LPC 500 for particle counting only which offers sample-to-sample analysis times of 95 seconds, with the same reduced sample size and sample preparation. This option is controlled by a separate software package that allows extensive customizability of the particle counting parameters.

Application Note

A Novel Approach to Analysis of In-Service Lubricants for Particle Size/Count and Metal Content

Particle counting is becoming a more routine tool for lubricant condition monitoring and maintenance programs to better identify particles of certain sizes and concentrations that can contribute to machine failure. In-service oils and other lubricants are monitored for particle size similarly to how they are monitored for elemental concentration. An increase in the ISO code (ISO 4406) for particle count or concentration of key wear metals indicates when maintenance is required.

By adding the LPC 500 liquid particle counter in-line with the Avio 500 ICP-OES Oils system, lubricant samples can be analyzed for both wear metals and particles all in one run with results repeatably within one ISO code for the >4, >6 µm sizes for transmission and gear oil. Throughput of 45 seconds on average per sample with less than 1 mL is achieved for both ICP as well as particle counting and sizing, all with the smallest automated particle counting system in the lubricants testing industry.
