This technique of extraction by immersion in an ultrasonic bath fits small parts or with complex geometry. It also allow the analysis when both external and internal surface have to be examined. Following the extraction, the analyses are performed in accordance with gravimetric characterization (ISO 16232-6) and with particle sizing and counting by microscopic analysis (ISO 16232-7).
