Taking contamination monitoring to the next level, the Filtration Division of energy management company Eaton introduces the CCS 5 mobile contamination control system. Suitable for both pressurized online operation and unpressurized sampling of fluids, the CCS 5 system quickly and accurately determines the solid contamination particle size distribution, water saturation, and temperature of hydraulic fluids in real-time.
“Maintenance operatives need to monitor fluid health without having to send samples to the lab and wait for the results. This is especially true for remote installations,” said Eric Rud, Global Product Manager at Eaton’s Filtration Division. “The self-contained CCS 5 system provides these measurement results immediately, enabling operators to assess the wear of hydraulic components, observe contamination standards and detect damage early. It also provides a measurable basis for filter and fluid change intervals.”
The easy-to-use system features a 7-in. color touch screen that works even while wearing latex gloves, ensuring operators hands remain clean at all times. It comes in a sturdy, IP67-rated suitcase that weighs just under 22 lb (10 kg), making it ideal for portability into remote and harsh environments. Compared to the previous generation model, the CCS 5 system has a 50% longer battery life in suction mode, which means it can be used in the field for longer without requiring access to a power outlet for charging.
The contamination classes covered by the CCS 5 system are precisely evaluated according to ISO 4406:99, NAS 1638, and SAE AS 4059. The high-resolution screen displays the contamination class distributions as a single bar graph or a chart for continuous measurement.
The CCS 5 system comes with all the necessary accessories, including the power adapter, high-pressure hydraulic hose, suction line, instruction manual, and a USB stick. The system can also store up to 100,000 measurement points, which can be downloaded onto a laptop via the USB stick for further analysis.
