HIAC Industrial – Our overview solution for fluid power testing for all applications

Particle Counting in the fluid power industry provides a critical piece of information in determining the health of the fluid system. Particle Counters measure fluid contamination as expressed by cleanliness standards like ISO 4406, SAE AS4059, and NAS 1638. These Standards provide a quick snapshot of the how dirty the fluid is by way of a cleanliness code. Why do we care? We care because over 90% of catastrophic failures are the result of abrasive wear that can cause the pumps, valves, precision mechanical components, or other fluid power systems to fail.

The primary role of oils and hydraulic fluids is to coat these parts, helping to reduce friction, extend component life, and minimize abrasive wear. Yet these same “protective” oils may be contributing to a catastrophic failure. Over time, the oils themselves become contaminated with particles that can contribute to wear on the machinery. These particles come from a wide variety of sources, including particles left on new machinery or parts by the factory, dirt, dust, and moisture from the outside environment, wear and tear on the machinery internal parts, and even contamination from new oil itself. Over time particles from all these sources build up in the oil, and eventually can cause temporary or permanent equipment failure.

Enter the HIAC series of Liquid Particle Counters, HIAC 8011+, HIAC PODS+, and the HIAC ROC.

There are 3 primary industrial applications where particle counters play

  1. Laboratory HIAC 8011+: Full featured instrument designed to meet laboratory needs in terms of fluid compatibility, sample volumes, throughput efficiency, dilution, and viscosity.
  2. Portable HIAC PODS+: Fully self-contained instrument that can be deployed in the field testing fluid using either the Bottle Mode or connected in the Online Mode
  3. Online HIAC ROC: Remote permanently mounted instruments that are installed directly into the fluid power system to perform routine monitoring in a dynamic environment. 

HIAC 8011+ Laboratory based Liquid Particle Counting system

HIAC 8011+The HIAC 8011+ Liquid Particle Counting System, is the culmination of over 30 years of particle counting expertise. Designed for ease of use, one button sampling yields results in under 60 seconds. The sample management system ensures consistent, accurate data and is capable of testing fluids from 1cSt to 425cSt without dilution.

Hiac Pods PlusHIAC PODS+ Portable Liquid Particle Counter

Performing Online or Bottle mode particle counting with the HIAC PODS+ maximizes uptime, by identifying problems before costly breakdowns occur, in addition to employing one button sampling and providing displayed, exported, and or printed results within 60 seconds.

Proven, rugged, and field ready

The United States Navy and other US and global military’s currently employ these instruments in the toughest conditions imaginable. Constructed for harsh environments, and maintaining the trusted HIAC accuracy and dependability, the HIAC™ PODS+ provides online and bottle mode testing capability, and a powerful Filtercart mode for walk away testing. The pressure and viscosity range coupled with the fluid compatibility that includes fuels, oils, phosphate esters, Glycols, and water only based applications make this instrument arguably the most versatile portable liquid particle counter on the planet.
