CLEANLINESS ANALYSES
IN THE CLEANROOM

QUALITY ADVANTAGE DUE TO TECHNICAL CLEANLINESS VERIFICATION

Technical cleanliness verification is an important quality feature these days, among others in the automotive industry, the supplier industry, medical technology, the electrical engineering industry and the new sector of e-mobility. Huge technical advances mean that consistent compliance with cleanliness requirements is no longer just a voluntary exercise, instead it has become mandatory. Our accredited laboratory and our multi-faceted cleanliness analyses help you as a manufacturer to guarantee the function, durability and quality, as well as the trouble-free manufacture of your products.

RESIDUAL DIRT ANALYSIS AND TECHNICAL CLEANLINESS VERIFICATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH VDA 19/19.1

In our excellently equipped cleanliness laboratories we acquire, extract and analyse particulate contamination and contaminating films. For you, we take over the check on the surface cleanliness of very small function-related components, entire assemblies and systems up to 1,000 kg as well as a very wide range of fluids. We also support you with particle monitoring in your production and assembly environment.

PARTICULATE CONTAMINATION

Quality assurance, comprehensively and reproducibly clean:
Typical applications are initial sampling, evaluation and requalification.
We also use residual dirt analysis for incoming and outgoing inspection, as well as for monitoring manufacturing processes.

FILMIC CONTAMINATION

Demonstrably "free of oil and grease" for the next process:
Chemical-filmic contamination on surfaces can interfere with or hinder subsequent manufacturing steps such as bonding, welding, printing or assembly.
Using chemical analytics, we identify manufacturing and cleaning residues such as grease, oil, coolants, cleaning media, etc. – both quantitatively and qualitatively.

PARTICLE MONITORING

Particle traps for assembly cleanliness in accordance with VDA:

Particle monitoring with subsequent particle analysis: identify sources of dirt and ambient contamination reliably, precisely and in accordance with VDA standards.
With our particle traps we check production lines as well as cleanrooms or sterile rooms. In this way we acquire and analyse the corresponding effects on your assembly or production.

CORRELATIVE PARTICLE ANALYSIS:
MORE DETAILED ANALYSES AND MORE PRECISE RESULTS

A speciality at Quality Analysis is correlative particle analysis. For this purpose, we combine reflected light microscopy with SEM-EDX analysis and RAMAN & FT-IR spectroscopy. In this way we acquire organic and inorganic particles more precisely and provide you clearly comprehensible information in relation to the material and the damage the particles can cause.

Information advantage due to correlative particle analysis

ACCREDITED TEST LABORATORY FOR INDUSTRIAL QUALITY ASSURANCE

Our company is accredited in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 by Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS). We are one of the few test laboratories in Europe in which all specialist areas have been successfully accredited. Read here more about our accreditation, the prerequisites and the advantages for you:

Accredited test laboratory

AT A GLANCE: TECHNICAL CLEANLINESS VERIFICATION AT QUALITY ANALYSIS

Your major advantage: at Quality Analysis you profit from the complete spectrum of technical cleanliness verification. We acquire, extract and analyse particulate contamination and contaminating films highly precisely using all common analysis methods.

EXTRACTION AND ANALYSIS METHODS FOR RESIDUAL DIRT ANALYSIS:
Extraction with and without ultrasound, gravimetry, light and scanning electron microscopy as well as RAMAN and FT-IR spectroscopy

QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE INVESTIGATION OF CONTAMINATING FILMS ON SURFACES:
Test ink, fluorescence measurement, gas chromatography with flame ionisation detector (GC-FID), RAMAN and FT-IR spectroscopy and gravimetric assessment

ALL COMPONENT SIZES:
For very small components up to large assemblies, in future up to 1,000 kg.

ALL TYPES OF CONTAMINATION:
For inorganic and organic particles and contamination on function-related parts, assemblies, systems and fluids.

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE OF CORRELATIVE PARTICLE ANALYSIS:
More analysis options, more comprehensive results and sound information on the particles analysed.

ANALYSIS OF PARTICLE TRAPS:
We analyse your assembly environment or individual stations using particle traps for environmental monitoring.

ACCREDITED TEST LABORATORY FOR CLEANLINESS ANALYSES AND QUALITY ASSURANCE:
Test laboratory accredited in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025, class 8 cleanroom, analyses according to VDA 19/19.1/19.2, ISO 16232, customer standards and specifications.
