  • Care and Cleaning

EIT radiometers are used in widely varying  (medical clean room to wood flooring manufacturing facility) conditions. Cleaning of the instrument's outer optics using the guidelines described below will help your EIT instrument perform as designed between service intervals. The guidelines are general and specific questions should be directed to EIT (

Instruments that stop functioning (accidently dropped, stuck in equipment, covered or immersed in coating) need to come back to EIT for further evaluation. Please use a Service Request Form found in the Customer Service & Support section.

EIT General Cleaning Guidelines


Cleaning instrument with EIT Instrument Wipes

EIT has sourced an industrial grade wipe that can be used for cleaning the optics on our UV measurement products. The Instrument Wipe contains a fast evaporating, mild solvent for cleaning EIT optics. The wipe is non-linting, non-abrasive and does not contain any detergents or surfactants that can harm the optics. Each wipe stays sealed until used to prevent contamination of the cleaning solution.
