S600 is the first truly portable test instrument for measuring dew point, particle concentration, oil vapour concentration and pressure which combined with the powerful 5″ touchscreen and integral datalogger, provides an indispensable tool for testing air/gas purity.
The custom software includes guided measurement instructions to ensure ease of operation without extensive training and PDF report generator for every measurement.
By combining these sensors into one unit, S600 offers ease of use with reduced cost of ownership through only one periodic calibration process instead of one per sensor. The sensors and control display are built into a rugged transit case for ease of transportation and the compact dimensions with only 10kg mass make S600 easily portable for all day use.
From July 2019, S600 has a next generation particle sensor included as standard, giving accurate particle resolution down to 0.1 microns to fully meet the particle measurement requirements of ISO 8573.
The S600 measures dew point, particle concentration and oil vapour concentration. For any instrument to be compliant with measurement according to ISO 8573-1, the methods used to measure must follow the prescribed method in the appropriate section:
ISO8573-3 dew point: S600 uses the capacitance type electrical sensor and is fully compliant.
ISO8573-4 particles: S600 uses a laser sensor and is fully compliant when measuring from isokinetic sampling points.
ISO8573-2 oil aerosols: S600 cannot measure these directly.
ISO8573-5 oil vapour: S600 uses a PID sensor which is not yet an ISO 8573-5 compliant method of measurement.
In order to develop an oil classification according to 8573-1, measurements for liquid oil, oil aerosol and oil vapour need to be summed and compared to the class table for class 2 or better. There is no electrical sensor on the market that can do this or is covered under the approved methods in 8573-2 or 8573-5.
However since vapour is always present alongside liquid and aerosol oil but can still be present when the liquid and aerosol contents are filtered out, using a PID sensor as in the S600 can provide accurate and repeatable measurement of vapour in high purity systems, to guide maintenance and provide client confidence in the effectiveness of the air treatment system.
The S600 is not 8573 compliant for oil measurement but is a great tool for quality testing on the above understanding. Please see the following page for more information on this subject.
