We are currently setting up an Oil Storage and Dispensing room at our ******** and want to use “lint free cloths” to wipe down our oil dispensing and distributing equipment. What constitutes a “lint free cloth” for the purposes of oil storage, dispensing, and distributing? Do you have any suggestions for a cloth that can be used?
I have the specifications for Tex Wipe Wipers TX309 (used in other areas of our ********). They include information such as; particles and fibers – particles 0.5-5µm @ 400x106 particles/m2, 5-10µm @ 15,000,000/m2, fibers:>100µm 80,000 fibers/m2; Ions Sodium 50ppm, potassium 1.5ppm, and chloride 7ppm. How do these particle counts compare to ISO particle counts used in oil analysis? Will the ions present in the cloths affect the oil quality? I.e. will we start seeing sodium in our oil analysis, either new or used oil?
