Parker’s NEW Fluid Property Sensor
Parker’s NEW Fluid Property Sensor - Tuesday, January 21, 2014


A NEW addition to Parker Hannifin’s Condition Monitoring range - the Fluid Property Sensor has been designed especially for mobile applications calling for cost effective but quality verification of the hydraulic fluid condition.

• A unique solution for continuous monitoring of fluid condition
• Improving uptime of equipment and lowering the cost of ownership

High cost of ownership is caused by the aging of hydraulic fluids, which accelerates the wear of system components. Modern systems are designed to operate at a high level of efficiency and reduced consumption. As a consequence, more frequent fluctuations of pressure, flow, load and temperature are present in the system which typically shortens the life time of hydraulic fluids. Catalytic processes can be accelerated with the presence of low concentrations of moisture and wear elements like Fe and Cu in the oil. Varnish can be created in the system due to this aging process, shortening the life time of system components and reducing the system efficiency.

Lower cost of ownership can be realized when hydraulic fluids are replaced in time, based on the principle of continuous measurement of the condition.

The FPS is a novel fluid property sensor that directly and simultaneously measures the viscosity, density, dielectric constant and temperature of fluids. The quality of hydraulic fluids is determined by monitoring the direct and dynamic relationship between multiple fluid properties.

Introducing the new icountBSplus Bottle Sampler
Introducing the new icountBSplus Bottle Sampler - Monday, March 4, 2013


Parker is pleased to present the new icoµntBSplus.
The plus behind the icoµntBS name indicates something is new.

To get prepared for future market expectations, Parker has developed the 2nd generation of the icoµntBS providing a more simplified and more effective product to validate the cleanliness level of hydraulic and lubrication fluids.

The icoµntBSplus offers now:

• 11 languages to support the easy and convenient touchscreen guidance
• CE certification
• Optional on-line measurement capability

The plus behind the icoµntBS name represents more value. But please allow us to explain that plus refers also to time.

Fortunately industry focuses most significantly on the importance of a system’s fluid cleanliness level. But, still today, many businesses are using oil bottle samples for validating the cleanliness level by external laboratories. Why lose precious time as the use of external laboratories implies a delay typically of 3 days or more?

plus also means being on time to avoid unnecessary damage to system components and oil. Using the icoµntBSplus, it provides direct results of the fluid cleanliness level and there is no need to lose precious time in initiating actions to stop the ‘wear & tear’ process to the system.

A NEW addition to Parker Hannifin’s Air Filter range
A NEW addition to Parker Hannifin’s Air Filter range - Tuesday, January 29, 2013


The Heavy Duty Air Filter (HDB) has been designed especially for heavy duty mobile equipment.

Meeting more stringent demands regarding equipment productivity and profitability, it goes without saying that adequate protection of the hydraulic system is essential in today’s contamination conscious industrial world. It is however remarkable that the function of system-matched air filtration for the hydraulic reservoir is often forgotten or at worst ignored.

Mobile equipment at work in construction sites or mines is exposed to stones or other debris potentially falling on the reservoir and as a result, damaging the air filter. As the use of air filters with plastic housings is rather popular, it implies there is a greater risk that these can get damaged. In addition to this, air filters with plastic housings or thin metal caps can get damaged when engineers are climbing on machines for inspection or service events.

The impact of a damaged air filter should not be ignored as it can result in damage to the hydraulic pumps or accelerated ingress of contamination into the oil.

Parker’s HDB is a robust but compact air filter that maintains the filtration function under severe circumstances:
• Robust housing avoids blockage of reservoir vent port
• Avoid pump damage due to cavitation as the HDB limits the vacuum that can be created in the reservoir
• Integrated pressurization valve contributes to improved hydraulic pump efficiency
• Reusable filter housing respects the environment and easy replacement of the air filter element
