Trial Number 0

Trial Purpose:

To evaluate part cleanliness

Date Run:


Experiment Procedure:

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate part cleanliness for Precision Instrument Manufacturer' old and new cleaning systems.  All parts were analyzed with The lab's Magna IR 550 and the Photo Acoustics SQM100.

Trial Results:

The FTIR analysis showed no difference in the cleanliness levels of all three cleaning processes. 

Success Rating:

A cleanliness study, addressing only various analytical techniques.


The OSEE results showed that the cleaning processes using the Oakite and the Pig chemistries produced slightly cleaner parts.  The fact that a difference was noticed on the OSEE and not on the FTIR suggest that all processes are just as effective in removing organic contamination, while the Pig and the Oakite process are more effective in removing inorganic contamination.
