After you invest in a particle counter, you start a long term, ongoing relationship with the particle counter manufacturer because particle counters are high precision instruments requiring regular calibration and occasional servicing. We know our customers want reliability in a particle counter servicing partner, which means: no hidden costs turnaround time that meets expectations, and […]
The Chem 20 was placed inline with a dedicated filter-wetting machine used by a semiconductor manufacturer to study the effect of wetting and flushing new particle filters before they are used in production.
In this 2-part blog series, we hear excerpts from an interview between Frank Panofen, Global Marketing Manager at Particle Measuring Systems and Rizwan Chaudhrey. They talk about how Particle Measuring Systems rapidly adapted to the change in our customers’ needs for manufacturing support around the world in 2020 and how they think the industry will be different because of it in 2021 and beyond.
When particle counters work together to give data on the state of contamination control, they’re going to disagree on the numbers. But why do the counts not match? The answer encompasses model, manufacturing, engineering design, and calibration.
Remote working, and allowing fewer vendors onsite can make projects very challenging, sometimes pausing projects indefinitely. David Quelle, GM of PMS Brazil, discusses one example where the Particle Measuring Systems’ team was able to work with a customer to remotely validate their FaciltyPro Environmental monitoring system & MiniCapt Monitors and conduct training.
Interview with Frank Panofen, Life Science Marketing Manager at Particle Measuring Systems How do we solve cleanroom contamination control issues when face to face discussions and in-person visits are not an option? In this interview, Dr. Frank Panofen of Particle Measuring Systems (PMS) explains how PMS advisors tackled travel restrictions and the inability to visit […]
When most people think about particle counting, they think mainly about testing high purity chemicals, ultra clean DI water and aerosol particulate within cleanrooms and Fabs. There is a sub sector market that deals specifically with surface parts testing of OEM products who provide finished products to the semiconductor and other industries. These parts need […]
The 2020 release of the EU GMP Annex 1 includes a new chapter on viable and non-viable environmental and process monitoring. Trend analysis and its impact on the contamination control strategy is now an essential activity that is referenced multiple times. We discuss the changes here.
When Argonaut Manufacturing was setting up their new state-of-the-art fill line they wanted the best contamination monitoring solution in a tight timeframe. Watch how Argonaut and PMS worked together to complete the mission.
The HandiLaz® Mini II handheld particle counter offers a powerful and nimble solution for pre-certification steps, identifying potential contamination hotspots, and troubleshooting high particle areas.
