Technical cleanliness

Nowadays, quality control of individual supplied components is coming to the forefront, especially in the automotive industry. This is mainly due to the requirement to purchase the highest quality and cleanest components due to the reliability and high safety of equipment and cars.

In this area we offer accredited tests for the determination of technical cleanliness of components according to VDA 19.1 / ISO 16232 as well as various customer specifications.

The basic analysis of technical cleanliness are:

  • microscopic determination of impurities in different size intervals from 5 µm - 18 000 µm (metallic - metallic impurities, non-metallic impurities, fibers)
  • gravimetric - weight determination of impurities
  • determination of residual organic substances (residues of fatty substances or technological media on components)
