Particle Analysis, Particle Size Testing, Shape Classification

In machine condition monitoring, the ability to determine the size and shape of contaminant particles is becoming a necessary, if not critical capability. Particles in an used oil sample may be due to the normal wear process, but an increase of particles, and their size and shape will assist the oil analysis laboratory in determining the source and severity of a potential malfunction.
Particles size analysis can be viewed and classified manually with analytical instruments such as the Ferrography Laboratory or automatically with the LaserNet Fines Particle Shape Classifier and Particle Counter.
