Optical Emission Spectrometry

Optical Emission Spectrometry

Optical Emission Spectrometry (OES) laboratory plays a fundamental role in the detection of metallic materials at RMRC. It is responsible for determining chemical composition of metals and accordance with existing standards by using the technology of the latest devices and experienced experts. This lab is able to provide various services utilizing devices with diverse capabilities, a large number of standard samples for daily and hourly calibration, latest editions of international standards and experienced experts.

Also, in order to provide the most accurate results based on standards required by the customer, the OES lab utilizes materials characterization methods (such as XRF, EDS and wet chemistry) and attends comparative and between laboratories tests.

Emission Spectrometry Laboratory Services at RMRC:

- Determine the chemical composition of metals as destructive or minimal destruction

Measuring Chemical Composition for Cobalt Alloys by Optical Emission Spectrometry
The chemical analysis of cobalt alloys is now available in RMRC by Optical Emission Spectrometry.
In 2012, RMRC purchased a high tech Optical Emission Spectrometry device which had the ability to analyze cobalt alloys in different samples. Considering the fact that the needed CRMs were not available at that time, we were not able to provide this service. Last week we purchased the CRM from one of the most prestigious European producers of Calibration Reference Samples and we are now able to perform research and laboratory services.
It is worth mentioning that this device is capable of measuring the following elements:
C, Si, Mn, Cr, Mo, Ni, Al, Cu, Nb, Sn, W, Fe, Ti, S, B, P, Pb, Zr, Co in cobalt alloys.
