Road vehicles -- Cleanliness of components of fluid circuits -- Part 3: Method of extraction of contaminants by pressure rinsing

This standard was last reviewed* in 2010.

*ISO standards are reviewed every five years.


ISO 16232-3:2007 describes the principles of extraction of contaminants from a component by pressure rinsing. It is preferably applied to components of which the surface to be examined is accessible by a jet of test liquid.

This method can be employed on its own or in association with other methods of extraction described in the ISO 16232 series.

Unless otherwise specified, ISO 16232-3:2007 deals with particulate contamination only. It does not, therefore, cover appearance defects or contamination by liquid or gaseous materials. It covers the amount and the nature of residual particles resulting from manufacturing processes and from the environment.
