ICP particle measuring capability is only up to 4 or 5 microns.RDE can measure up 10 microns and when using Rotrode Filter Spectroscopy it can measure up to 65~70 microns.

LaserNet Fines is an automatic wear particle classifier specifically designed for used oils, that will automatically clasify all particles greater than 20 microns into their different wear modes(fatigue, severe sliding, fibers, non-metallic, cutting) without the need of doing a time consuming and subjective analysis with ferrography and under 3 minutes. At the same time this Direct Imaging technology will provide report particle counting, soot content and approx water content (free water - water dropplets greater than 20 microns)
I have seen papers showing correlation of particle counting with spectrsocopy and ferrography
