Ascentech Intros Ionic Cleanliness Tester
Ionic cleanliness tester.
Chester, CT — Ascentech LLC, North American distributor for GEN3 Systems Ltd., is introducing Gen3's new CM-Series Ionic test system, which utilizes a solid gold test-cell, ballistic amplifiers, and high volume pumping systems to ensure superior measurement precision even at very low conductivity values.

The high volume pumping system produces complete test solution change more than 6 times per minute, resulting in faster test times, more sensitive measurement, and superior surface contamination detection.

PC-based software is used to produce graphical test data, a pass/fail analysis, and automatic hard copy printout using test methods according to the MIL and DEF standards.

The system includes the unusual solid gold measuring cell, and ballistic amplifier, providing a test accuracy of <0.005mS/cm; unique Curve-Fitting Analysis algorithm (Merit of Fit); provides complete testing within 3 minutes; full regeneration in <6 minutes; accurate measurement even when the proportion of test solution to surface area under test are huge; and automatic temperature compensation.

The CM-Series testers measure in accordance with all international and MIL specifications, and comply with IPC-J-STD 001 and IPC-TM-650, MIL-P-28809 (obsolete but still referenced); and DEF Standard 00-100/3.
