Hydraulic fluid power — Determination of the particulate contamination level of a liquid sample by automatic particle counting using the light-extinction principle
This document is applicable to the monitoring of:
a) the cleanliness level of fluids circulating in hydraulic systems;
b) the progress of a flushing operation;
c) the cleanliness level of support equipment and test rigs;
d) the cleanliness level of packaged stock fluid.
NOTE Measurements can be made with particles suspended in the original liquid or in a sample of the liquid diluted with a compatible liquid when APC coincidence error limits are exceeded.
