Material verification and identification using XRF
The XRF is a popular non-destructive testing (NDT) technique and the portability of the handheld XRF analyser allows ABEN to conduct PMI in the field (client premises). With our advanced portable XRF analysers, identification and verification of metallic materials and products is possible almost everywhere. The XRF analyser scans the metallic material and identifies it key elements. However, the XRF cannot detect carbon (C) and some lighter elements such as nitrogen (N). Read more.
Material verification and identification using OES
OES is the most preferred method due to its ability to identify carbon and lighter elements that are not detectable by XRF. OES creates a spark on the sample and is used to vaporize the material being analysed. The atoms and ions contained in the atomic vapor are excited and emit a particular wavelength of light which is then used to precisely determine the chemical composition of the sample. Using a Thermo Scientific ARL 3460 optical emission spectrometer, ABEN’s chemical analysis lab offers fast, accurate, and reliable chemical analysis services. Read More.
