Resolution, Sensitivity & Autodilution for Contamination Applications

The AccuSizer is a sophisticated liquid particle counter used for various particulate contamination applications. Low concentration samples can be analyzed using either the AccuSizer A2000 or SIS systems. The AccuSizer A2000 can also be configured to automatically dilute concentrated samples such as motor oils. Common AccuSizer contamination applications include:

  • Hydraulic oil
  • Lubricating oils
  • Drinking water
  • Parts cleaning
  • Parenteral drugs

Customizing a 780 system for Automotive Parts Contamination

Customizing a 780 system for Automotive Parts Contamination Single Particle Optical Sizing (SPOS) has been used to measure particle contamination in liquids, both pharmaceutical and industrial, for decades. For example, the Accusizer 780 SIS system was specially designed for measuring particle contamination in injectable pharmaceutical liquids following the test procedure detailed in USP-788. In addition…

780-SIS: Particle Size and USP-788 in the same instrument

780-SIS: Particle Size and USP-788 in the same instrument The FDA requires all manufacturers of injectable fluids to test their products for particle contamination that if present can render the fluids dangerous for human consumption. This is codified in the USP <788> test which lays out the protocol for testing injectable fluids for contamination of…

AccuSizer for Contamination Counting

Older style particle counters like the Hiac have been used for decades to determine particle size and concentration. Hiac type systems have been successfully used to count particles in oil, water, and parenteral drugs. Typical applications of Hiac liquid particle counters include: Particle count in hydraulic oil ; ISO 4406, NAS 1638, SAE AS4059D Particle…
