Abstract

The following is a method to detect particulate contaminants. This method uses filtration technique to collect all particles onto a filter membrane. The membrane is thereafter dissolved into a solvent to release all the collected particles, which can then be easily detected, tested and measured by liquid particle counter, such as turbidity meter.
