Continuing our commitment to excellence and innovation with spectroscopy, we have added a state-of-the-art ARL 4460 emission spectrometer. This top of the line spectrometer is loaded with some 60 element channels and is currently programmed for the following alloy families: carbon and low alloy steel, free machining steel, stainless steel, tool steel, aluminum, nickel and titanium alloys. Another nice feature is the ability to analyze samples with a much smaller surface area.
The computer controlled electronic current controlled high rep source unit produces the ideal burning conditions for the programmed alloy systems and various sized samples. The ECC source unit also significantly expands the analytical ranges and improves burning samples with a variety of metallurgical conditions. Notable improvements include measuring very low and high carbon as well as machinability elements added to free machining steels. While not a replacement for combustion techniques, nitrogen and oxygen are now available by optical emission. Stay tuned as we bring the various new options on line.
