Particle Counter Technology – ISO 21501-4 Calibration Standard and its significance in data accuracy

ISO 21501-4  (Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments — Part 1: Classification of air cleanliness by particle concentration) requires airborne particle counter calibrations to be completed following...

Classification vs monitoring: What is the difference? Part 2

Cleanroom monitoring Non-viable airborne particle monitoring is essential. Particles are significant because they can enter a product as an extraneous contaminant and can also contaminate it biologically by...

Particle Counter Technology and the importance of ISO 21501-4 Calibration vol4

Location Identification – are you 100% sure that the particle counter is in the right location? Is the location ID built into the remote sensor? Are we sure that after the unit comes back from service that it...

Particle Counter Technology and the importance of ISO 21501-4 Calibration vol3

Photodetector Health – The photodetector converts the scattered light as photons into electrical pulses by creating a charge for each received photon. As the amount of scattered light increases with the...

Classification vs monitoring: What is the difference? Part 1

Understanding cleanroom classification and monitoring is critical to production and compliance. To prevent confusion between these two definitions, Hasim Solmaz, Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions, describes...

Particle Counter Technology and the importance of ISO 21501-4 Calibration vol2

Airborne Particle Counter Technology and critical parameters Particle Counters measure what we cannot see. To get some perspective a 0.5μm particle is about 200 times smaller than the diameter of a strand of...
