Barry M. Verdegan, Robert A. Fletcher

Abstract

Contamination control is essential to reliable, cost-effective operation of hydraulic and engine systems. Particle counting provides the common, underlying basis for comparing filter performance and monitoring of contamination levels in hydraulic oil, lube oil and fuels. Since 1999, ISO 11171 has been the standard particle counter calibration method for hydraulic and engine applications. ISO 11171 required the use of NIST certified SRM 2806 for calibration.
