Wettability measurements and cleanliness evaluation without substantial cost

Abstract-Cleanliness can be characterized in industrial applications via “simple” wettability measurements, and has been successfully done so for at least two centuries. A problem in much of general manufacturing and maintenance industries is not that more sophisticated measurement and evaluation technology is necessary to provide value, but is that technology developed at least several generations ago has not been more widely and profitably used. This paper describes and references that technology, and identifies published case histories where it has been both successfully and unsuccessfully used.
