The REU 1430 conditioning unit is supplied as an accessory for the FluidControl Unit FCU. It is a portable, self-priming motor gear pump which makes it possible to perform measurements of oil cleanliness with the FCU, even on depressurised reservoirs.
The FCU itself permits direct measurements at measurement points in a pressure range from 1 - 350 bar (15 - 5000 psi); the REU 1430 is required for pressures less than 1 bar (15 psi). The oil to be investigated is suctioned out of the depressurised reservoir with the REU 1430 and guided to the measurement by the FCU at a pressure of 13.5 bar (190 psi). The REU 1430 ventilates itself thereby automatically.
