Instrumental & Classical Wet Chemistry
Let the Chemical Testing laboratory at LTI determine the composition, structure or elemental make-up of your metals, alloys and other materials. Our top-of-the-line chemical testing equipment is very efficient and provides fast, reliable reporting of test results.
LTI is A2LA and Nadcap accredited and performs analyses in the instrumental and classical wet chemical testing labs according to a wide array of AMS, ASME, ASTM and MIL test methods and standards.
Our chemists perform metals testing, including analysis of powdered metals, ores and ferroalloys, composite testing, polymer testing and more. LTI’s instrumental chemical testing lab provides the following analysis methods:
- Carbon, sulfur, nitrogen, oxygen and hydrogen analysis and determination
- Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (AES)
- Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectroscopy including ICP-AES and ICP-MS analysis
- Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometry with SEM capabilities (SEM/EDS)
- Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
- Positive Material Identification (PMI)
- Moisture Analysis for welding flux and inorganic samples
Full Capabilities to Get Exactly What You Need
Trace element analysis is performed with ICP Spectrometers that detect the full spectrum of elements and have detection limits in the “parts per million” range for many metals, even “parts per trillion” for some. Gravimetric, volumetric, colorimetric and potentiometric procedures are used for chemical testing in the wet lab at Laboratory Testing Inc.
Our chemists in the instrumental and classical wet chemical testing labs can obtain quantitative and qualitative information relating to the elements in a sample through various methods. Whatever your testing needs, they will get you answers, even on orders with unique requirements or limited sample weight. Our chemical testing capabilities cover metals, ores, ferroalloys, composites, ceramics and polymers.
The chemical testing laboratory also performs testing on metals to determine susceptibility to corrosion. The list of services provided for corrosion testing include accelerated intergranular corrosion, passivation, humidity, salt spray and salt fog methods performed according to ASTM and industry standards. RoHS Compliance Testing is also provided to meet the restrictions against hazardous substances sold or used in the European Union.
