Microplastics in Wastewater
BLOG: Counting Microplastics in Wastewater

In industry, the current methods to measure microplastics lack standardization, are highly prone to contamination, and do not measure small enough particles. Nike recently released a case study, “Measuring and Controlling Microparticles in Textile Wastewater” leveraging Particle Measuring Systems’ (PMS) Liquilaz® II particle counter to count microplastics. Authored by John H. Rydzewski, Richard Woodling, and Yue Yang, the paper discusses the goal to minimize microplastics in aquatic systems while validating the results through the LiQuilaz II particle counter. The authors of this paper propose a new approach of measurement and filtration that has the opportunity to reduce the microplastics that end up in our water.  This alternative method would allow manufacturers to measure particles in treated textile water continuously for particles that are as small as 2.0 microns. 

Isokinetic Sampling

In the highly regulated and risk-sensitive world of pharmaceutical manufacturing, adherence to stringent compliance measures is paramount. To achieve this, pharmaceutical companies use controlled environments, particularly cleanrooms, where the risk of variability and particle contamination is minimized. Here we’ll delve into the significance of cleanrooms and explore a key contamination management technique employed within them—Isokinetic Sampling and unidirectional airflow.
