FCA-2000 Ferrous Content Analyzer

The concentration of iron magnetic particles in oil is one of the most direct indicators of equipment wear. This iron content analyzer effectively detects concentration of iron magnetic particles in oil within 10 seconds, providing a simple and intuitive output of concentration in ppm (mg/kg).
It features compactness, portability, fast detection speed, low sample consumption, ease of operation, high data reproducibility, enabling users to quickly identify abnormal wear conditions of equipment on site or in laboratory.

The core of the FCA-2000 consists of two precision-winding electromagnetic induction coils. One coil is used for real-time detection while the other serves as a reference comparison. When a 5ml sample tube is inserted into the instrument, iron magnetic particles such as iron, nickel, and cobalt cause changes in the magnetic field of the sensing coil, which is linearly related to the concentration of iron magnetic particles in lubricating oil.

Thus, it realizes the function of detecting the concentration of iron magnetic particles ranging from nanometers to microns in oil.
