HIAC PODS+ Self-Diagnostic Alerts and Cleaning Routines
Operator purposely sampled fluid that exceeded 1000 cSt in viscosity so the PODS+ “Calibration voltage out of range” alert would trigger. The PODS+ is loaded with sensors that notifies the operator when the fluid exceeds coincidence level, air pressure too low, sensor is blocked, or the flow path is restricted/blocked. We alert the operator so sample fluid is not wasted nor analyzed for false answers. Two different Cleaning Routines allow the operator clean the sensor and/or the flow path to ensure accurate particle counting. This video also demonstrates both Cleaning Routines: Clean By Counts (analyzes particle counts while cleaning) and Clean By Volume (the amount of cleaning volume).
