Scientific & Laboratory

The only accredited laboratory in Romania in accordance with ISO 17025 - 2018, specialised in products and services to evaluate, monitor and analyse fluid and parts cleanliness.

Klarwin® Scientific & Laboratory provides fluid and parts cleanliness analysis, according to specific standards, on-site cleanliness evaluation and water content measurements. We offer a wide variety of technical support to our customers – from correct fluid sampling to trainings, commissioning, specialized consultancy and equipment renting services.

Laboratory equipment

Inside the Pall PCC Contamination Cabinet is a controlled environment, appropriate for obtaining a membrane that reflects the real contamination of the fluid or component.

By analysing the membrane at the Jomesa Optical Microscope, all types of particles, down to a few microns, can be identified and counted, with an increased precision.

With the Portable Filtration Kit, a simulation of the filtration process can be done, retaining contaminants on a membrane and evaluating, visually, the cleanliness class.

The Fluid Cleanliness Monitor, Pall PCM500, the newest technology in determining the oil cleanliness class, is fast and portable, and the results are unaffected by the presence of water or air.

The Automatic Particle Counter, Pall PFC400, uses laser technology to detect and count the particles in a liquid.

Using the Pall WS19 water sensor, we determine the dissolved water content in oil (as a % of the saturation level).

Hydraulic fluid power – Fluid contamination – Determination of particulate contamination by the gravimetric method

ISO 4406:2017

Hydraulic fluid power – Fluid contamination – Method for coding the level of contamination by solid particles

IEC 60970

Insulating liquids - Methods for counting and sizing particles

The report issued includes the following results:

Microscope images of contaminants, classified by their nature in metals, non-metals, fibres

Gravimetry

Granulometry: cleanliness code according to ISO 4406 and particle size distribution

Water content in oils

Additionally, you receive interpretation and diagnosis of the results and, we can propose fluid filtration and separation solutions to make sure you always obtain the specification required in the process.

An example of analysis reports will be available soon!
