Product Dimensions
Working and Testing
The icountBS is capable of degassing and supplying a fixed amount of oil to test. Because of this it is able to eliminate
many of the variables associated with contamination monitoring.
The oil sample is degassed using compressed, cleaned air and then supplied, through a fixed displacement pumping
system. Its test method is consistently controlled, thus removing more of the variables, which could occur with Bottle
Sampling.
Unfortunately, there are other factors that are beyond the control of Parker Hannifin products, consideration of which
could result in error limitation.
These are categorised as:
THE EFFECT OF SYSTEM CONDITIONS.
FLUID SAMPLE EXTRACTION.
SAMPLE HANDLING AND PREPARATION.
In most instances, the adoption of simple controlled procedures will result in reliable trend monitoring.

The Effect of System Conditions
System flow rate
Samples are best taken from a point in the system where the flow is TURBULENT (Reynolds No. greater than 4000). The
turbulent flow creates a mixing action. Where the flow is streamline or LAMINAR, larger particulate may tend to settle
toward the lower pipe surface and not be sampled.
System Condition Changes
Changes in the system operating condition, flow, temperature, pressure or vibration can result in previously sedimented
contaminant being retained into the flowing oil. It is also possible that these changes may cause partially contaminated
filter elements to shed particulate into the system. Samples should therefore, be extracted when the system is in a steady
state condition and the result less likely to be distorted by contaminant peaks.
Taking a Sample
Extract a sample while the system is operating under consistently controlled conditions. Adopt a consistent technique.
Spill off at least 200ml of fluid to flush the sampling port of residual contaminant.
Leave bottle capped until ready to extract the sample.
Fill the bottle to approximately 80% and cap immediately after extracting the sample.
Fluid Sample Extraction
Flow Rate
Variations in the sampling flow rate may affect the result from bottle samples. The flow rate through a sampling port from
an operating hydraulic system will vary dependant upon the system pressure, the port restriction and fluid viscosity. For
best trend monitoring, it is necessary to maintain these conditions consistently when extracting Bottle Samples.
Sampling Valves
There are a number of proprietary sampling valves available, which adhere to good theoretical principles. However, they
do tend to generate a level of precision and cost which is unnecessary for trend monitoring.
Sampling points
Sampling points should enable extraction of a sample without changing the system’s condition. Fine control needle valves
are not desirable, as they have a tendency to silt up under some operating conditions, causing the distribution of
contaminants in the fluid to be changed. The sampling port should be protected to maintain cleanliness and thoroughly
flushed before collecting the sample for analysis.
Sample Handling and Preparation
Bottle Cleanliness
It is preferable that bottles have sealing screw caps and both parts are cleaned to a suitable level in accordance with
ISO3722.
The bottle should not contain more than one tenth of the number of particles per 100ml than are expected to be
monitored. Standard Parker Hannifin bottles are supplied clean to ISO 13/11 or better in a Class 10,000 Clean Room and
should not be used to accurately count oils cleaner than ISO 16/14 although they may be used for “trend monitoring” at
lower levels.
NOTE: A Class 10,000 clean room is designed to never allow more than 10,000 particles (0.5 microns or larger) per cubic
foot of air. So as you can quantify this, a typical office buildings' air contains between 500,000 to 1,000,000 particles (0.5
microns or larger) per cubic foot of air.
The bottle should remain capped until time of sample filling and be re-capped immediately afterwards.

Sample Mixing
Sedimentation of contaminant in a sample will occur, the rate of which is dependent upon both the fluid and particle
characteristics.
Methods of sample agitation have not been provided, as they are likely to inconsistently distort the analysis of results.
Samples should be analysed, without delay, once agitated.
Where facilities are available, mixing can be achieved using “paint shakers” and/or an ultrasonic bath (for example, 5
minutes with a paint shaker, 30 seconds in an ultrasonic bath and a further 15 minutes with the paint shaker, as indicated
in ISO4402:1991[E]).
Care should be taken when using ultrasonic baths to avoid distortion of the result by extended use, causing contamination
breakdown.
Bottle samples can be sufficiently stirred by swirling and tumbling by hand.
Results
The first result from a bottle sample should be disregarded, as it could be distorted by fluid from a previous sample.
To reduce the effects of mixing variations and sedimentation, it is preferable to average the results of three tests.
Individual users may establish the possibility to reduce this number of tests, dependant upon their requirements and
experiences.
Samples from different parts of a system will give different results. Consideration should be given to what monitoring is
desired and where samples are to be extracted from for suitable trend monitoring to be performed.
It is important that whatever practices are adopted by the user, they are performed consistently.

Note:
The internal pump capacity is 110ml
The maximum Test Volume is 250ml (i.e. Flush Volume + Volume per Sample x Number of Samples = 250ml)
If multiple samples are required from one sample bottle and the combined Flush Volume & Volume per Sample is greater
than 110ml, then the pump will empty to the connected waste bottle before drawing the next sample.
The icountBS will perform an AMF (Automatic Mini-Flush) of approximately 5ml at the end of the first Volume per sample
and then again at the beginning of the next Volume per Sample.
However, if the Flush Volume and Volume per Sample is LESS than 110ml (the internal pump capacity) then the test
samples are combined (see Example B).

Interpreting data
Solid contaminants in fluid power systems vary in size, shape, form and quantity. The most harmful contaminants are
normally between 6 microns and 14 microns. The ISO code is the preferred method of reporting quantity of contaminants.
The ISO code number corresponds to contamination levels pertaining to three sizes.
Number of particles per 100 millilitres greater than indicated size
The first scale number represents the number of particles larger than 4µm(c) per 100 milliliter of fluid, the second number
for particles larger than 6 µm(c) per 100 milliliter of fluid and the third number for particles larger than 14 µm(c) per 100
milliliter of fluid.
Particle size, µm
Interpolation is acceptable; extrapolation is
not permissible.

For example: code 20/18/13 indicates that there are between 500,000 and 1,000,000 particles larger than 2 microns, and
between 130,000 and 250,000 particles larger than 5 microns, and between 4,000 and 8,000 particles larger than 15
microns.
Reference ISO 4406:1999
When the raw data in one of the size ranges results in a particle count of fewer than 20 particles, the scale number for that
size range is labelled with the symbol ‘>’.
For example, a code of 14/12/>7 signifies that there are more than 8,000 and up to and including 16,000 particles equal to
or larger than 4µm(c) per 100 ml and more than 2,000 and up to and including 4,000 particles equal to or larger than
6µm(c) per 100 ml. The third part of the code, >7 indicates that there are more than 64 and up to and including 130
particles equal to or larger than 14µm(c) per 100 ml. But the 14µm(c) part of the code could actually be 7, indicating a
particle count more than 130 particles per 100 ml.

The chamber door latch has not engaged.
The chamber door locking pin has not engaged
Solution
1. Press “ok” on the touch screen to remove the System Fault message or abort the current test.
2. Open the chamber door and inspect door seal / seal groove. Clean, re-grease (with high vacuum
3. Whilst performing the test procedures again, check the alignment of door location pin against the
4. If the icountBS fails to recover, then contact Parker Hannifin.
Problem
Data can not be exported.
Message appears - "USB Disk Not Found"
Cause
For exporting data, the icountBS requires an USB memory pen/stick to be connected.
Solution
1. Connect a USB memory pen / stick to the USB port to the USB connection on the rear panel of the
Problem
The icountBS does not function (i.e. locked / frozen)
Cause
The sample bottle has not been centrally aligned with the dip tube inside the chamber. This has
resulted in the dip tube being ‘wedged’ against the sample bottle.
Solution
1. Switch the icountBS off and then re-start.
2. If the icountBS fails to recover, then contact Parker Hannifin.

System communication error.
Solution
1. Switch the icountBS off and then re-start.
2. If the icountBS fails to recover, then contact Parker Hannifin.
Problem
Test counts are displaying ‘00000000’
Cause
The counting sensor has not detected any particles.
Solution
1. Switch the icountBS off then re-start and then perform another test.
2. If the icountBS still shows ‘0000000’ counts, then contact Parker Hannifin.
Problem
Total sample volume is more than 250ml
Message appears - "Total volume require exceeds 250ml"
Cause
The maximum sample volume is 250ml
(ie. Flush Volume + Volume per Sample x Number of Samples = 250ml max)
Solution
1. Return to Test Parameters screen and re-enter.
Problem
Remains pressurised.
Cause
1. Electrical failure
2. Mechanical failure.
Solution
1. Remove Red Plug from the Emergency Air Dump Valve on the Rear Panel .
WARNING!! Allow 5 seconds for the air to fully deflate before attempting to open the Door.
A very small amount of air will remain in the Sample Chamber but the door can be safely opened.
