Spectral analysis

Determining the chemical composition of materials

The chemical composition of metallic materials is determined with the help of spectral analysis. In the process materials can be identified or verified.

The positive material identification tests, also called PMI tests, are of vital importance for the traceability of materials. Material mixups can lead to considerable damages and must be ruled out unconditionally, especially in sensitive, security-relevant areas.
Frequent applications for chemical analysis inspections of incoming materials and outgoing materials.

We have 3 stationary and 2 mobile spectrometers, which all work in accordance with the optical emission procedure (OES). Thus we are able to perform a chemical analysis in our laboratory and at the client’s location.

Due to the great number of analytical programs we are in a position to determine nearly all concentration ranges with high accuracy.

We analyse the following base materials in-house:

  • Iron
  • Aluminium
  • Nickel
  • Copper
  • Titanium
  • Cobalt
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc

We are able to analyse the following base materials in our mobile laboratories:

  • Iron
  • Aluminium
  • Nickel
  • Copper
