Component Cleanliness in the Automotive Industry
Assuring Component Cleanliness is Best to Avoid System Failures
As fluid systems become more sophisticated and less tolerant to dirt, the controlling and measuring of component cleanliness has become a vital part of the manufacturing process. Every manufactured part potentially carries “built-in” contamination to the system.
In order to improve the life and reliability of fluid components used in the automotive, hydraulics and aerospace industries, the system and component cleanliness assembly need to be addressed. The measurement of components and parts cleanliness is related to contaminant collection, analysis and data reporting with ISO standards (International Organization for Standardization) continually being developed to control procedures.
Pall’s Component Cleanliness Management (CCM) solutions provide products and services for accurate, reliable, and repeatable component and fluid cleanliness measurement. The CCM program includes the supplies of cleanliness cabinets, cleanliness evaluations, specification development, and customized training, all undertaken in cooperation with our customers to optimize in-plant processes.

Pall Cleanliness Cabinets (PCC) are self-contained units providing accurate, reliable and repeatable procedures to extract particulate contamination from component surfaces for subsequent analysis. The PCC enables operators to assess the cleanliness levels of manufactured parts and components in accordance to ISO 18413, ISO 16232 and VDA 19 procedures.
Why Choose Pall Cleanliness Cabinets (PCC)?
Hitting the mark with cost and labor efficiency
Without standard, repeatable cleanliness validation, manufacturers and suppliers cannot meet industrial ISO cleanliness standards.
Pall Cleanliness Cabinets (PCC) Provides:
- More of an automated and repeatable process for checking parts cleanliness
- Up to 50% faster performance – rapid to blank value that starts test sampling in less time
- Decrease in human errors
- Less rework involved – quick with noticing a quality issue
Our Pall Cleanliness Cabinets Accommodate For a Variety of Component Sizes
