The residue analysis of auxiliary and operating materials from metal cutting is not new territory for us, nor are salts from etching or pickling processes, electropolishing or passivation. Through constant contact with a wide range of manufacturers, we can apply our understanding to your advantage.
In metalworking, a wide variety of chemicals are used as auxiliary and operating materials that are undesirable on finished products.
If these are acids or alkalis, ion chromatography is often the most suitable method for identifying residues and, if necessary to optimise purification processes.
For cooling lubricants or other substances with organic components (grinding pastes, mineral oils, lubricating oils or drawing oils), it is necessary to select from the available methods those that are suitable for the reliable detection of the target substance(s).
We have a wide range of gas and liquid chromatographic methods in our portfolio to offer you both overview methods with recognised high coverage and target substance specific analysis.
Ion residues (e.g. from acids and alkalis):
Measurement of organic residues from auxiliary and operating materials:
We can offer the following methods for inspecting surface structures, solid residues or corrosion:
We are pleased to offer quantitative and qualitative particle testing:
