Coincident Events

I’ve mentioned it before, but I think it’s well worth repeating, that Coulter Counter users can open up a mine of useful background information and application advice if they go to the Beckman Coulter website, www.beckmancoulter.com. Once you’re on the site, go to the relevant product section and then in the right-hand column click on ‘Literature’. In my latest search I came across some notes on ‘coincident events’ in relation to use of the Coulter Principle. Continue reading Coincident Events

Coulter Counter Application in Copper Plating

A basic laboratory set-up to demonstrate the copper plating electrochemical process

A basic laboratory set-up to demonstrate the copper plating electrochemical process

The manufacturing of printed circuits often makes use of an electrochemical process known as acid copper plating. One of the potential pitfalls in this process is contamination of the electrolyte with particles, so manufacturers must keep a close eye on the numbers and sizes of any particulates present. Which is where a Coulter Counter comes in… Continue reading Coulter Counter Application in Copper Plating

Coulter Counter Used for Particle Counting and Sizing in Drinking Water

Drinking water

Here is a good example of how a Coulter Counter can be used. In this case, it’s to find out about the particulate content of water – which is essential information for those involved in water treatment and management.
