Surface cleanliness testing instrument for measuring oil, grease and cleaning fluid contamination on metal surfaces. The instrument is widely used for many applications (see list below), especially in the laser welding and laser stripping (hairpins) process for inspection of sufficient cleanliness/stripping using the fluorescence measurement.
Monitoring cleanliness on manufactured metal parts during and after the cleaning process is imperative to ensure surfaces are free of contaminants before the next manufacturing process e.g. assembly, sealing, gluing, painting, printing, lacquering etc. This metal cleanliness tester also known as the “CleanoSpector” is a simple, handheld non-destructive cleanliness inspection instrument for measuring organic oil, grease or cleaning fluid contamination on a metal substrate and can be used on the production line or in the laboratory.
The CleanoSpector instrument is an easy-to-use fluorescence measuring device and has been specially designed for this purpose. The test results are measured in the degree of the cleanliness of metal parts in percentage format. It enables the parts to be evaluated directly at the process and the level of cleanliness is measured by the touch of a button with the result shown within seconds.
Advantages of Using the Fluorescence Method for Measuring Metal Cleanliness:
- Enables detection of various organics like residual oil, grease, cooling lubricants, separating agents etc.
- Non-destructive test method
- Fluorescence intensity increases with amount of contamination (layer thickness)
- Direct comparison of parts with same contamination.
- Direct and fast measurement on surfaces
- Small measurement point provides high lateral resolution
The measuring principle is simple – the instrument detects contamination due to its’ fluorescence which is excited by a UV light emitting diode (UV LED). The fluorescence intensity depends on the amount of contamination found on the surface at the measuring point, i.e. the higher the fluorescence the more contamination found on the surface.
The CleanoSpector can also be integrated for automated inline inspection and robot mounted ideal for 3D part inspection. Please contact our Sales team to discuss these options further.
