In which field is the optical particle counter applied most?
For water quality monitoring, an optical particle counter is used for detecting the number of insoluble particles dispersed in water. In the pharmaceutical industry, an optical particle counter is also widely used, especially in vials. The detection of the fat emulsion is based on PFAT5 because excess large particles can lead to capillary clogging. Insoluble particles in a sodium chloride infusion can cause pyrogenic reactions or phlebitis. Determination of PFAT5 using an optical particle counter is necessary.
Another important application of the counter is the quantitative analysis of contaminants in lubricating and hydraulic oils. The existence of the particles caused by the contaminants leads to a series of failures. Contamination level evaluation based on various standards using an optical particle counter is of vital significance to the stable long-term operation of the equipment.
