The metal found in industrial environments is usually dirty and oxidized. Good surface preparation is key for obtaining the most accurate and repeatable test results on hand-held analyzers. This is especially true with LIBS and the Rigaku KT-100S LIBS analyzer, as LIBS is a surface technique. If your surface is not representative of the metal alloy itself, the condition of the sample surface will impact your results. As with other techniques, like XRF and OES, results will improve with the more sample prep you provide. All non-representative material, such as paint, coating, corrosion, or scale material, should be removed prior to running an analysis. This can

Additive manufacturing, as well as powder injection molding, offer great potential if the raw materials employed are of optimum quality. But the process needs to be continuously monitored, and the finished parts need to be examined meticulously to ascertain the relevant parameters for a high-quality, cost-efficient production process.

ELTRA’s new ELEMENTRAC CS-d analyzer is suitable for measuring C/S concentrations in both organic and inorganic sample materials When using conventional elemental analyzers for carbon and sulfur determination in solids, the user must decide whether to use a resistance furnace to analyze organic compounds or an induction furnace for inorganic compounds. Not with ELTRA’s unique analyzer, the ELEMENTRAC CS-d which combines both techniques! Thanks to ELTRA’s Dual Furnace Technology, the user only needs one analyzer to examine organic matrices (such as fuels, oils, chemicals) and inorganic matrices (such as steel, ores, ceramics, glass) for their carbon and sulfur content directly without cumbersome sample

Effective Quality Control of Steel and Iron Products with Combustion Analysis

The element concentration of carbon (C), sulfur (S), hydrogen (H), nitrogen (N), and oxygen (O) in iron products, such as steel, have a significant influence on material properties like ductility, brittleness, or hardness. Hence, reliable determination of the C, H, N, S, O contents is a routine quality control task in steel and iron production. This article explores the application fields and advantages of elemental analyzers, which are also known as combustion analyzers, in the steel industry. Download
