For customers wishing for a less sophisticated instrument than the fdMplus, the FWM offers a simple, easy to use instrument that offers Parker Kittiwakes quality, accuracy and reliability. This unit is ideal for testing and analysing oil samples on-site, on-board or in remote locations where full laboratory analysis is not possible. Features include: 

  • Suitable for testing on-board, on-site or in remote locations.
  • Simple, easy to operate instrument requiring minimal training.
  • Direct reading in PPM on the LCD screen. 

The FWM is constructed using a sophisticated magnetometer adapted for field applications. A 5 ml test tube, filled with the sample, is placed directly in the hole in the instrument and its metallic content, in PPM, is displayed on the screen in less than 2 seconds.
