An Analysis of Acceptable Particle Losses in Tubing
Transportation of particles in tubing between a sample inlet and the optics of particle counters has at many times been at the forefront of discussion regarding the truth of readings. When the validation implications of losses due to various forces are reviewed, the certainty of the result is always in question. So what are these forces, what are the losses, and what are the acceptable results? This paper addresses these issues to allow for a better understanding of the problem.
