Innovative ideas, combined with state-of-the-art technologies for the analysis of metals and inorganics.

Elemental analysis of the elements C, S, O, N and H and elemental analysis by optical emission spectrometry (OES) are essential for the characterisation, quality control and certification of materials such as metals and other inorganic materials. Elementar offers for each of these applications dedicated analysers for safe and reliable materials analysis, which meet all requirements in R&D, routine, and high-throughput laboratories.

A stable and highly efficient production of metallic and ceramic products requires a thorough monitoring of material quality. Thus, the analysis of raw materials and implemented material quality control within the production line are necessary. Elemental analysis is ideal for those check-ups of inorganic materials. With this method it is possible to detect impurities, inclusions, surface oxidations and further material defects on a simple, reliable and fast way.

Furthermore, the functionality of modern materials, e. g. high quality steels and alloys, ceramics, catalysts and electronic materials depends significantly on additive elements. Hence, it is of great interest to precisely analyse the elemental concentration in inorganic materials. Consequently, elemental analysis is essential for the characterisation, quality control, and certification of metals and ceramics.

Elementar offers dedicated instruments together with feature-rich, multi-language software to fulfill all requirements in R&D, routine, and laboratories. The innovative inductar® series is based on advanced technologies and tailored to the needs of material development and process control. Accordingly, the new analysers are not only highly precise and reliable, but also very user-friendly and optimised for fully automated high-throughput measurements.
