Gravimetric Contaminant Testing Flow Chart

As I was writing the recent post about gravimetric Millipore testing it occurred to me that I was trying to boil a good-sized part of a 180+ page document into 500 or so words.  It also occurred to me that many people don’t have the time for or interest in reading endless pages of specifications …

Millipore Testing – Gravimetric

Millipore testing is all about evaluating cleanliness based on the presence of particles or other solid, non-soluble contaminants.  In general, it can not be used to detect the presence of hydrocarbons or other contaminants which will be solubilized in the extraction process.  The results of Millipore testing are generally expressed by weight using gravimetric analysis …
