What Is A Particle Count?

If you work in a Cleanroom, you’ll know how important it is to keep the space free from contaminants. One way to ensure this is to be proactive when it comes to finding any issues with the equipment you’re using through having a particle count test. 

Why might a Cleanroom need a particle count test? 

Over time, Cleanroom equipment can start running ineffectively due to anything from fan filter issues to unwanted contaminant build-ups. Ongoing monitoring of the particle count in your Cleanroom will give you peace of mind that no errors are occurring, as finding potential issues could become costly if left too late. 

What is a particle counter? 

A particle counter is a piece of equipment that can take quick samples and detect anything that may threaten the cleanliness of your Cleanroom. The technology used by particle counters has changed over time, and what used to be a bit of an inconvenience is now very easy thanks to how portable the devices are. The particle counter can measure those particles that are too small to see with the human eye, including those that are 200 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair, using a laser that reflects light back from the particles which can then be recorded.
