Related Terms

MICROMETER (μm)

A unit of length. One millionth of a meter. Also known as micron. 1 Micrometer = 39 millionths of an inch (.000039 inch). Contaminant size is usually described in microns. Relatively speaking, a grain of salt is about 60 microns and the eye can see particles to about 40 microns. Many hydraulic filters are required to be efficient in capturing a substantial percentage of contaminant particles as small as 5 microns.

μm

micron (micro-meter).

SUPERCLEAN FLUID

10 particles >10 micron per milliliter

ANGSTROM

A unit of length, used especially in expressing the length of light waves, equal to one tenthousandth of a micron or one hundred millionth of a centimeter.

MICRON

One millionth of a meter, or 0.000039 in. or 1/25400 in The diameter of dust particles is often expressed in microns.

CLEAN FLUID

100 particles >10 micron per milliliter

AGGLOMERATION

The potential of the system for particle attraction and adhesion.

ISO SOLID CONTAMINANT CODE (ISO 4406)

A code assigned on the basis of the number of particles per unit volume greater than 5 and 15 micrometers in size. Range numbers identify each increment in the particle population throughout the spectrum of levels.

FATIGUE PLATELETS

Normal particles between 20 and 40 microns found in gear box and rolling element bearing oil samples observed by analytical ferrography. A sudden increase in the size and quantity of these particles indicates excessive wear.

EROSION

The progressive removal of a machine surface by cavitation or by particle impingement at high velocities.
