✔Always mount your isokinetic probe directly to your particle counter and use trolley/SSL CART for sampling in a room.

✔Particle Counters always come with a 3-meter sampling tube. Cut the tube with the shortest possible length, not more than 1 meter. Never use the entire tube.

✔Always keep your isoprobe and tube closed at all times with isoprobe cap while not in use.

⛔ Do not leave your particle counter on the floor and extend your tubing in a spiral fashion.

⛔ Do not use a tripod next to your particle counter if you are already using trolley/SSL CART, mount your probe directly

⛔Do not clean your sampling tube with high pressure or ultrasonic bath. Hold it in U shape, fill with IPA, move up and down gently, drain and let it dry.
