Particles that can contaminate an engine or gearbox disabling it and costing assembly companies millions of pounds in warrantee failures can now be easily detected thanks to the Components Cleanliness Analyser developed by Simple Quality of Sweden.

Exclusively distributed by the UK’s Particle Technology, the stand-alone mobile system can be installed in any manufacturing location and perform tests automatically. It comprises a HEPA clean air cabinet, a non-toxic waterbased pressure rinse/ultrasonic clean and fi ltration system to capture residual particles from the component being tested, a microscope and video camera to view the captured particles and specialised software to size and count them.
