1.1 This test method covers the evaluation and reporting of the particle contaminant adding characteristics of filters in the particle diameter range of 5 µm and larger. Loose contaminants, as well as the detectable particulate components shed by the filter media, are flushed from the filter and measured. The fraction of particles attributed to media migration is determined by optical microscopy. This test method is applicable to either filter cartridges or flat media.
