QIII SX Surface Particle Detector 5-125um

Pentagon Technologies’ line of surface particle detectors are the standard in high technology industries for measuring and controlling surface contamination. Particles that accumulate on critical surfaces or products can reduce yield and reliability. Particles below 100um in diameter are very difficult to see with the naked eye. These particles settle fast and escape routine air monitoring. The QIII SX measures particles in the sub visible to visible range (5-125um). Use the QIII SX to find and eliminate particles that cost you time and money

• Instant measurements of surface particulate
• Improve yield by reducing particles in products
• Minimize troubleshooting time by quickly identifying particle sources
• Monitor and set limits for particle density on incoming or outgoing materials
• Drive continuous improvement through establishing a surface particle baseline
• Test to standardized ISO 14644-9 classification of surface cleanliness
• Data integration into SPC systems.
• BKM Mode Option - to drive consistency in measurements and specifications
• Capture counted particles for analysis with optional Particle Analysis Module
• 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance for Lifescience applications
