Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 July 2007
Status: active
Page Count: 40
ICS Code (Insulating oils): 29.040.10
ICS Code (Other standards related to electricity and magnetism): 17.220.99
scope:

This standard describes the sampling procedures and methods for the determination of particle concentration and size distribution.

Three methods are specified. One uses an automatic particle size analyser, working on the light interruption principle. The other two use an optical microscope, in either the transmitted light or incident light mode, to count particles collected on the surface of a membrane filter. The optical microscope methods are described in ISO 4407.

All three methods are applicable to both used and unused insulating liquids.

Annex A contains an alternative sampling procedure using a syringe and Annex B reports a reference for the calibration of automatic particle counters.

NOTE 1 The methods are not intended to measure particulate matter in liquids containing sludge. While analysing solid content on oils containing sludge refers to method for sediment and sludge determination in IEC 60422, Annex C.

NOTE 2 The methods specified are only applicable to measurements related to a limited range of size and number.
