Chemical analyses

Chemical analysis

We provide analyses of pig iron, all types of steels and cast iron, non-ferrous metals, ferro-alloys, slags, non- metallic materials and refractories, liquid samples (extracts), oils, lubricants and fuels using methods of analytical chemistry and modern physico-chemical methods - optical emission spectrometry, X-ray spectrometry and atomic absorption spectrometry. We test mass activity of metallic samples using a gamma spectrometer.

We provide Positive Material Identification (PMI) at customers´ workplace.
