Steel Chemistry Analysis

Spectrometric analysis or chemical analysis of steel, including stainless steels, is primarily intended to test such materials for compliance with compositional specifications.

We offer the following chemical analyisis services:

  • Spectrometric analysis
  • Chemical analysis of steel
  • Steel Chemical Testing

ARL 3460 Computerized Optical Emission Quantometer System (OES) determines up to 20 alloying and residual elements in carbon and low-alloy steels.

A capacitor discharge is produced between the flat, ground surface of the specimen and a conically shaped electrode. The spark chamber is flushed with argon to overcome the absorption of radiation by air. The relative radiant energies or concentrations of the analytical lines (elements) are then determined.
