New Particle Differentiation Software

An image of particles deposited on a membrane. The metallic particle is differentiated.

In order to help customers identify the nature of the particles extracted from compounds during cleanliness controls, IFTS has purchased the latest Microvision software.

This software can differentiate metallic and non-metallic particles in 95% of cases. The analysis software detects all particles observed under an optical microscope and determines the following characteristics: length, width, elongation, color, intensity and brightness.

By establishing a threshold according to the brightness and intensity of the reflected light, metallic particles are counted separately from all other particles.
