Particle Monitoring in Pharmaceutical Cleanrooms Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions Environmental monitoring is an important aspect of regulatory and quality control in the production of pharmaceuticals.

    particle size using multiple values for particles with larger aspect ratios. 2 Performing a particle size analysis is the best way to answer the question: What size are those particles? Once the analysis is complete the user has a variety of approaches for reporting the result. Some people prefer a single number answer—what is the average size? Optical direct-reading particle counting techniques have the advantage of rapid, continuous, nondestructive particle detection. By combining the advantages of optical detection techniques with the manipulation of particle motion, several instruments have been developed that detect more sp. NIOSHTIC-2 Publications Search.

    Light Obscuration, also referred to as Single Particle Optical Sensing (SPOS), is an analytical technique of high resolution capable of detecting a small percentage of outliers. It can also be used to obtain an overall size distribution, when operated with proper technique. Engine Exhaust Particle Sizer (EEPS) together with Optical Particle Sizer (OPS) provided Particle Size Distribution (PSD) in the range nm – 10 μm with the integration time of 1 s.

Research Triangle Park, NC: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Research and Development, Environmental Research Laboratory ; Cincinnati, OH: Center for Environmental Research Information [distributor], The instrument is a modified version of an earlier prototype. The upper limit of the size response was extended from 10 to 20 micrometers, and several component and packaging changes were incorporated to make the unit more suited to stack particulate emission survey applications.

The instrument offers a method for in-stack analysis of particle size without dilution or extraction of materials and directly produces a distribu- tion of the particulates by volume fraction. This device thus provides a unique and valuable measurement capability for analysis and monitoring of particulates in source emissions.

Based on the size, shape, and refractive index of the particles, a series of equations relates the amount of light scattered or absorbed to the particulate concentra­ tion. Instruments that measure particle size distribution use the behavior of particles (diffusion, aerodynamics, and optical and electrical mobility), as described by Kulkarni et al.
