To carry out meaningful particle size measurement, the VDA19 and ISO-16232 standards follow a three-step procedure:-
- Extraction of particles from the surface of the component
- Filtration of contaminant particles on to a membrane
- Analysis of the contaminant particles (mass, size, number and type)
With these three steps directed by the VDA19 and ISO-16232 standards, companies are always looking for the most efficient and cost-effective methods of carrying out each step, and the final analysis step can be costly, but it doesn’t have to be. RJL’s MicroQuick Particle Scanner delivers Particle size measurement data in just a few minutes, and with its intuitive software, operators can capture the particle size measurement data easily and quickly.
