Question:

We have seen a number of our customers switch from a washdown weight and visual particle count to a laser particle counter. I'm familiar with what would be used on a hydraulic or fuel system part but most of these counters do not allow the use of a solvent from the washdown to be run through the counter. Do you have any recommendations for suppliers of particle counters? W.G.

Answer:

I don't consider myself an expert on particle counters but did have some success in finding a company that does supply a system to analyze in both aqueous and non-aqueous (solvent) liquids. It is Products Finishing's policy not to name companies but e-mail the Parts Cleaning Clinic and we'll provide the name privately.
