Particles Plus enters contamination and controlled environments market

Offers a range of handheld and remote particle counters

The 8206 handheld particle counter

Particles Plus has entered the contamination and controlled environments market with a new line of handheld and remote particle counters.

There are four handheld models and eight remote particle counters in the series.

The 8206 handheld particle counter measures 0.2m to 10.0m with a flow rate of 2.83 LPM (0.1 CFM) and can display up to six user-selectable particle size channels as well as temperature and humidity data; the 8306 measures 0.3m to 25m with the same flow rate as the 8206. The latter also displays up to six user-selectable particle size channels as well as temperature and humidity data.

The 8506 measures 0.5m to 25m as does the 8303, except this model displays only three particle size channels and optional temperature and humidity data.

The remote models include the 5201, which measures 0.2m to 10.0m with a flow rate of 2.83 LPM (0.1 CFM) and can display up to six particle size channels plus (optional) temperature and humidity data on its 4.3in colour touchscreen. The difference between this model and the 5301 and 5310 is that these models measure 0.3m to 25m.

We will be aggressively focused on the semiconductor, life sciences, aerospace, and data storage industries

The 5501 and 5510 measure 0.5m to 25m, while the 6201 measures 0.2m to 10.0m as well as temperature and humidity data, but also has a built-in vacuum pump and can be used as a stand-alone battery operated unit or as a real-time particle counter in continuous mode.

The 6301 and 6501 also feature a built-in vacuum pump, but the 6301 measures 0.5m to 25m with a flow rate of 2.83 LPM (0.1 CFM) while the 6501 measures 0.3m to 25m.

All Particles Plus particle counters meet ISO 21501-4 and JIS B9921 standards.

The US company will also offer rotary vane vacuum pumps and aims to establish itself as an OEM and private label supplier for other instrumentation manufacturers.

'Corporations are increasingly dependent on particle monitoring for improved quality and higher production yields,' says Adam Giandomenico, President of Particles Plus. 'We will be aggressively focused on the semiconductor, life sciences, aerospace, and data storage industries, as well as the indoor air quality market segment. Particles Plus aims continually to develop state-of-the-art products.'

With headquarters in Massachusetts, Particles Plus has engineering facilities in Grants Pass, Oregon as well as Los Altos and Fremont, California.
