The cleanliness of components and parts is at the center of most industrial manufacturing processes, as these components must be free of contaminants to ensure a high-quality finished product. Technical cleanliness inspection involves quality control, process management, and manufacturing departments taking samples from the production line and utilizing particle extraction through filter membranes to quantify contaminants that may affect the performance, lifetime, and reliability of final products.
