icountPD - Online Particle Detector


The icountPD Particle Detector represents the most up to date technology in particle detection. The design dynamics, attention to detail and moulding compactness of the permanently mounted, on-line particle detector module, combined with onboard, laser based technology, brings to all industries a truly revolutionary, particle detector as a remarkable cost effective market solution to fluid management and contamination control.

The small compact design allows versatile placement of the icountPD.
