Analytical Testing

Pall offers analytical testing to uncover particulate and microbial contaminants in process fluids. If left unchecked, contaminants can ultimately lead to system and product failure. Our labs are well equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation, which is necessary for a detailed and accurate analysis of your fluids. As part of our analytical testing services, we will also provide you with documentation containing our findings.

Our analytic services include:

  • optical microscopy
  • oil analysis
  • contamination analysis
  • particle counting
  • microbial and endotoxin challenge testing
  • microbial identification
  • chemical compatibility testing
  • gas and liquid chromatography
  • light and electron microscopy
  • x-ray emission spectroscopy
  • Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy
  • computer-enhanced image analysis
  • particle size distribution (volumetric and gravimetric)

Cleanliness Audit

Contamination in process, hydraulic, and lubrication fluids can be uncovered during a cleanliness audit. Contaminants are collected and identified to determine their origin. Recommendations are then made for corrective action that can improve your processes and increase the reliability of your equipment.

The presence of built-in particulate contamination on these high-performance components can result in abrasive wear of dynamic surfaces and erosion of metering surfaces and jamming in valves. This is exacerbated at higher temperatures, pressures, and cycle rates. The degradation of working clearances can have a very significant impact on component reliability and performance.

Pall has decades of experience and technical leadership in both dynamic clearance protection and related contaminant diagnosis/evaluation. Our cleanliness audit can help ensure that your high performance equipment and components remain durable and reliable.

Supply Contracts—VAIS

Pall has developed an enhanced integrated supply program, known as Value Added Integrated Supply (VAIS), which provides cost benefit beyond that offered by traditional integrated supply programs. Our partnerships within the filtration industry make this possible, allowing us to supply 100% of your filtration and separation needs at cost-effective pricing. VAIS can be implemented for a process or site/multisite operation.

The results of this program are reductions in:

  • filter expenditures
  • total line items purchased
  • number of vendors
  • purchase orders processed

The VAIS program considers both the operating costs and the unit cost and works with you to provide a compelling return on investment.

System Upgrades

When new requirements necessitate system modifications, Pall can provide upgrade services for your filtration and separation equipment. This is possible even when your equipment has been provided by another manufacturer.

Upgrade services include:

  • modification or upgrade of PLC program
  • identification and installation of the optimal filter medium
  • conversion of manually-actuated to electrically-actuated components
  • valve upgrades

Genuine parts, cleaners, filters, and other consumables to be used for system upgrades, or as replacements or spares, are available at discount prices.
