Get introduced to cleanroom basics, including a review and comparison of ISO and FS209E classifications. Review particle size, composition, types and sources, and discuss commonly used measurements to define the size of irregularly shaped particles and the implication of each technique. Additionally, you will explore particle concentrations in liquid and air samples.
Understand particle behavior by reviewing transport characteristics, interactions and various forces on particles. Get an introduction to filtration mechanisms and filter efficiency curves for air and liquid systems, and learn about the role played by the refractive index, particle size and shape. In addition, the principles of Rayleigh and Mie light scattering will be covered, including basic scattering relationships.
