Why an XTREME?

After selling our first particle monitor in 1989 we have always been told that particle counters should be handled with care.

This has become the industry norm with no manufacturer pushing the boundaries of arduous condition use for particle counting.

A cradle for every shock

S50-P sensor and pcb board assembly is fitted into a purpose designed stainless steel cradle assembly. Each pcb board is individually assembled onto its own vibration mounts that are then mounted onto the chassis that also has its own independently fixed vibration mounts – Indespension.

Independently absorbed – Indespension

Built for industrial & mobile applications that aren’t fixed in their design; with a focus on the arduous running the conditions:

The main chassis is suspended on VA mounts, along with every circuit board mounted on the chassis, creating an Indespension VA for all components
mounted in the shell. Stopping wear and tear on cables, fluid joints, circuit parts.

So what's the story

The heart of the XTREME​

At the heart of the S50-P beats the Pamas HCX volumetric sensor:

  • Calibrated to ISO 11171:2022

  • Cleanliness readings in ISO4406:2021

  • Internal pump 10ml/min to 25ml/min

  • Pressure XD195 pump 5bar max

  • 4mm Fitok fittings – Fuel

  • 6mm Fitok fittings - Oil

The Nacre of the particle counting World​

The shell has been designed forruggedness in mind:

  • Aluminium 6082 T6 (HE30)

  • Machined from one piece solid billet

  • Average wall thickness of 15mm

  • Hard anodised to 50micron

  • FEA analysis – 5tonne with 0.6mm deflection with a safety of 3:1

Hang anywhere you want!

At the heart of the S50-P beats the Pamas HCX volumetric sensor:

  • The shell has been designed with multiple fixing points based on 8mm / 5/16UNF (USA standard) on body

  • Side walls have 10mm / 3/8”UNF fixings

  • Side wall mounted on the 10mm/3/8” UNF pins - FEA displayed loaded with3tonne, safety was still 5:1

The busy end​

The service side can be configured lefthand or right hand:

  • Each endplate machined from solid

  • Amphenol connector IP68 rated optional Deepsea Seamate connector can be fitted

  • Inlet fittings Fitok 6mm stainless steel twin ferrule

  • RS485 port for connection to POV software

  • USB port for connection to Configurator software

  • Vacuum test port with Nitrogen prefill option 200mbar

  • All fixings A4 stainless steel

The view to a clean count

The glass is manufactured from Soda Lima silica float:

  • 10mm annealed toughened

  • Softening point 715 degrees C

  • Working temp 400 degrees C

  • Rated to 165Mpa


What the optician prescribed

The sealing is throughout the Xtreme is based on ROV Deepsea
engineering technology:

  • Spray path from pressure mechanically tortured

  • IP68 rated

We set alarms

  • Leak detection sensor

    An optical leak detection sensor is fitted to the S50-P Xtreme for detecting any leaks within the shell.

What keeps us clear

  • Thermostatically controlled

    An thermostatically controlled 40watts heater and fan blower is installed within the cradle to demist the glass.

  • Moisture absorption

    Silica gel bags are also housed within the cradle for moisture absorption.

Does the FEA work?

  • When you have the resources to test

    You test, we based all of our calculations on FEA science and real world testing.

  • Load test to be setup

    With a loadcell and we will drive a Landcruiser or Defender 110 on top of the unit, record load and carry out particle counts and video.

  • Approximate load – 900kg

  • Fishtank test

Approximate Load

We have started to keep Fish

  • 24hr test immersion test

  • IP68 rated

  • EN590 fuel will be sampled

  • Results recorded to the Cloud

  • S4031 secondary particle counter will be used to qualify results

  • No fishes were harmed in this test!!

The Small Print
  • The Xtreme has been designed around the sensor Pamas S50-P particle counter which will form the basis of the working conditions for fluids entering the sensor,
    the rest has been developed with 20years of Deep ROV experience and testing:
  • Temperature: -10 degrees C – 55 degrees C (higher or lower temps offered with
    internal reflection, insulation bladders)
  • Pressure: Inlet 5bar, high pressure option with pressure reducing valve available
  • Load testing: 5tonne
  • Load testing wall mount: 3tonne
  • View glass load testing: 1tonne
  • IP68 rated: Deepsea ROV Seacon – Seamate connector available to 4000metres
