PCM500 Series Portable Cleanliness Monitor


  • Monitor contamination levels in fluids
  • Get accurate cleanliness code results in under 6 minutes
  • Upload real-time results directly to mobile devices for analysis
  • Detect abnormal fluid cleanliness conditions quickly



Like the Pall PCM400, the new improved PCM500 uses proven mesh Blockage technology to report accurate, reliable, 3 part ISO 4406 cleanliness codes for most types of fluids, in many types of environment.

With the PCM500 you can:

  • Monitor contamination levels in mineral, synthetic, or water-based fluids. Results are unaffected by the presence of water, air, or dark fluids
  • Get accurate, 3 part ISO 4406 cleanliness code results in under 6 minutes and quickly take preventative action
  • Upload real-time results directly to mobile devices for analysis and action
  • ‘Pass off’ cleanliness of new builds quickly and confidently
  • Protect your systems from catastrophic failure by detecting abnormal fluid cleanliness conditions quickly

The PCM500 can be permanently installed to monitor critical applications (including component test facilities) or used as a portable device for routine condition monitoring of various fluid systems.

PCM500 Monitor Features:

  • Proven mesh blockage technology provides accurate 3-part*  ISO 4406, AS 4059 Table 1 (NAS 1638) or AS 4059 Table 2 cleanliness codes
  • Self-cleaning procedure between each test ensures the optimum accuracy of results
  • Compact, robust, fully self-contained portable design (fluid sampling pump included)
  • Simple to use, colour touchscreen interface
  • Long battery life for extended operation in remote locations
  • Measurement of fluid cleanliness, temperature, viscosity, and optional water content.
* 3 part code measured at 4 µm, 6 µm and 14 µm (c) per ISO 16889.
