High service quality is our product, based on technical expertise and an extensive range of high-grade laboratory equipment. We also want to provide you with an insight into our laboratory equipment to show you the different options that our Analysis and Testing Centre offers.

We work with the following instruments for materials analysis

  • SPECTOMAXX optical emission spectrometer
    Stationary, to identify the elemental composition of Fe, Ti, Cu and Al alloys
  • 2 energy-dispersive X-ray analysis systems (EDX) EDAX Genesis and EDAX TEAM with SDD detectors for elemental analysis and elemental distribution mapping
  • 2 coarse/fine granulators to shred films and refuse-derived fuel
  • Helium leak tester to determine leak tightness in components
  • PARR calorimeter to determine heat and calorific value
  • ELTRA carbon analyzer, measurement range: 0.005-100% carbon
  • SG4000ex personal air samplers, 0.05-3.5l/min.
  • MACHEREY-NAGEL photometer
  • DIENER ELECTRONIC plasma etcher
  • 2 scanning electron microscope (SEM) by ZEISS, EVO MA10 and MA25, accelerating voltage 0.2-30 kV, chamber pressure 10-400Pa, SE and BSD detectors; 5-axis table control for samples up to 0.5kg; samples up to 5 kg in x,y- direction; max. sample dimensions: 130x130x210 mm
  • SG12 and GSA 50-1 air samplers, 3.0-50l/min.
