LECO analysis is the ideal testing method when small pieces of metal samples cannot be sparked on a spectrograph due to their size constraints. During this testing process, the sample is burned so that it releases the specific elements for analysis.
Using the ASTM E1019 method, we provide superior accuracy when detection limits are low and the testing samples are small. With state-of-the-art LECO instrumentation, we provide precise analysis of ferrous and non-ferrous materials, including carbon steel, stainless steel, alloy steels, cast iron, nickel alloys, titanium alloys and cobalt alloys.
Our Expertise Is Carbon and Sulfur LECO Analysis
Our carbon and sulfur LECO analysis involves sample combustion and measurement of combustion gas absorption in the infrared region. We weigh your sample material, heat and combust in a flow of pure oxygen. As a result of this combustion process, the carbon and sulfur components are oxidized to form carbon dioxide (CO2) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) respectively. We can detect low-levels of carbon and sulfur from .0004% to 5%, depending upon sample type and weight of the material.
For over twenty-years, we have provided accurate LECO analysis reports to our worldwide customers. Therefore, whatever your material testing requirements are, we have the knowledge and experience to meet your needs.
