Introducing the smallest and lightest Industrial and Pharmaceutical Grade Particle Counter with stainless steel enclosure, 6 Channels, a built-in printer, PDF Reports, and the most advanced technology - ensuring the highest level of accuracy and repeatability of measurement. Drop and vibration tested for industrial use.
In business for over 55 years, Climet has dozens of multi-jurisdictional patents in
field of particle counting. Climet is a pioneer and innovator
having been the first to introduce the battery powered portable
particle counter (CI-500) in 1993. Since then, Climet has developed
virtually every meaningful feature for portable particle
counters, many of which today are considered industry standard. This
includes but is not limited to high flow rates of 50 LPM, 75
LPM, and 100 LPM. The CI-x70 Series is fully compliant with ISO
21501-4; PIC/S; FDA CGMP; EU GMP, Annex 1; ISO 14644-1/2:2015; 21 CFR Part 11, and others.
Introduced August 2017, the CI-x70 NextGen
6-Channel Portable Particle Counter offers numerous
enhancements including new patent pending or patented
technology. It's the smallest and lightest industrial and
pharmaceutical grade particle counter, with many new user-inspired

An energy efficient design, the CI-x70 will
run longer on a single battery than the competition using a
dual-battery configuration. When comparing battery efficiencies,
don't be fooled by comparisons of "nominal" or "typical" use. Climet conducts battery testing
with "continuous" use (laser and blower engaged with 100% duty cycle,
and with a zero count filter installed). The single battery
configuration means Climet customers will spend substantially less money
over the life of the instrument on consumables, including
The CI-x70 Series is truly the next generation
of particle counter, with on-board intelligence unsurpassed on
the market today, it provides Climet a platform for future
enhancements, and scalability to satisfy custom technical
The CI-x70 Series are pharmaceutical
6-channel portable particle counters that come in your
choice of 1 CFM, 50 LPM, 75 LPM or 100 LPM flow rates.
Each model comes standard with an RS-232 serial interface,
Ethernet TCP/IP, and USB.
Seamless stainless steel enclosure
simplifies cleaning and sanitation. A completely
sealed front panel display prevents biocides, IPA, and other
cleaning fluids from accidentally leaking into the interior of
the particle counter, thus eliminating the risk of short
circuit or premature catastrophic damage to the sensor.
An expert in manufacturing industrial
instrumentation, every new Climet instrument design is drop and
vibration tested ensuring end-users can expect up to a
decade (and beyond) of reliable operation. This level of
ruggedized testing is unique in the industry,
and ensures accidents don't turn into capital
appropriation requests or expensive repair
Tested and Certified HEPA Filtered Exhaust (ISO
Each particle counter deployed in the Life
Science industry must have a HEPA Filtered Exhaust, or
otherwise risk regulatory action (i.e., an observation, finding,
etc.) due to rouge particle
emissions. Over the past 50 years our own experience
confirms that not all HEPA filters are created equal, and
that among the more expensive and higher quality filters an
average of 10% still fail a leak integrity test. For
this reason, Climet is the only manufacture of particle
counters that conducts emissions tests on every new factory
model, and certifies emissions to ISO Class 3.
This provides an added level of assurance to end-users that
their particle counters are not adding to the particle
burden of their cleanroom.
Accuracy and Stability of Measurement
A long-earned reputation in the industry for
manufacturing the most accurate particle counters, Climet
particle counters have unparalleled repeatability (in
metrological terms: stability or precision) of measurement.
Over 50 years of manufacturing experience and use of the
highest quality materials provides users unparalleled
High quality materials, an expert level of
engineering acumen, and a mature DFM (Design For
Manufacturability) virtually eliminate short-term and
long-term calibration drift. This also enhances product life cycle,
offering users a decade or more of reliable use. This
is but one factor that greatly enhances Climet's reputation
for providing the lowest TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). End users in regulated industries, and
others of discerning taste for high precision
instrumentation, exclusively sole source Climet as their
preferred solution provider.
Interval Calibration Out-of-Tolerance Rates
Customers in regulated industries are generally required to
re-calibrate their particle counters at least annually.
Depending on the process or risk assessment, more frequent
interval calibration may be required. When a particle
counter is out-of-tolerance (OOT) during the interval
calibration, a deviation report and investigation is
required in regulated industries. Among pharmaceutical
and biotechnology producers a simple failure
investigation costs between $8,000 to $12,000 on average assuming no scrap or batch rejection.
This cost is difficult to calculate as it's almost all labor
usually involves multiple departments.
It is a hidden Cost of Poor Quality (CoPQ) associated with
the instrument, which few end users track. As the cost of
one simple failure investigation well exceeds the initial
purchase price of a particle counter, we can conclude that
CoPQ is frequently the #1 cost driver.
Internal studies and customer Total Cost of Ownership
(TCO) feedback confirms that on average when a Climet
particle counter is equal to or less than 7 years old, the
instrument passes its interval calibration 99.6% of the
time. In a separate internal study of 2,000+ Climet particle counters,
confirm an in-tolerance rate of 98.3%, with approximately 25% of the
particle counters included in this study being 10 or more
years old. These statistics are absolutely
unparalleled in the industry, and Climet uniquely provides
value well beyond the simple use of the instrumentation.
