Analyse particulate contamination to ISO 4407


The Filtertechnik portable patch test kit identifies and monitors types and levels of contamination in fluid power or fuel systems. It will help towards understanding and achieving IS04407.


The particulate patch test kit enables instant visual analysis through an optical microscope of the major wear elements including bright and black metals, silica, fibres, elastomers, plastics, microbial growth (diesel bug) and others.


A sample of the fluid to be tested is passed through a filter membrane via a vacuum pump. The slide is then dried and mounted in a membrane holder ready for visual assessment. A high-powered camera attached to the microscope allows pictures to be taken and particles sized correctly on screen. Software, also supplied helps with the understanding of the size and make up of the particulate collected on the slide.


The kit is supplied complete with everything required for taking immediate samples and is simple to assemble and use. Full training available on request.


Ideal for:


  • Identifying & monitoring types & levels of contamination
  • Component cleanliness evaluation
  • Identify wear elements
  • In-house quality control
  • Software analysis of contamination
