Reporting Cleanliness Levels


ISO Cleanliness Code 4406:99
! Convenient format for reporting particle count data
! Graph of particle size vs. particle concentration

! Simplified coding ! Focuses on three particle size ranges:


! Total number of particles > 4!m ! Total number of particles > 6!m ! Total number of particles >14!m

ISO Range Numbers


Particle Concentration (Particles per Milliliter) 40,000 - 80,000 20,000 - 40,000 10,000 - 20,000 5,000 - 10,000 2,500 - 5,000 1,300 - 2,500 640 - 1,300 320 - 640 160 - 320 80 - 160 40 - 80 20 - 40 10 - 20 Range Number 23 22 21 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11

How do we measure fluid contamination?


Structure of ISO-Code:!
amount of dirt particles! in a 100 ml sample! larger than these specied sizes:! 4m / 6m / 14m / 21m!
22!

Example:!
larger than 4m = 2,234,000!

ISO Code =

How does this show a 50% improvement in engine life?


! Before is ISO Particle count given by oil analysis on vehicle not equipped with FilterMag ! After is ISO Particle count from FilterMag equipped vehicle ! Green Box shows results from the change in particle levels in 4 categories. The number in the . . .
! Upper left corner shows a 1.5 times increase (50%) in hydraulic systems and diesel engines (applies to gas engines too) ! Upper right corner shows result if tests were done for rolling element bearings ! Lower left corner corner shows result if tests were done for journal bearings and turbo machinery ! Lower right corner corner shows result if tests were done for gear boxes

Its the Small Stuff Thats Killing Your Equipment
