Chemical Testing

PES has the capability to conduct chemical analyses on a wide variety of materials, metals, and alloys. Our goal is to provide a timely and cost-effective response to analytical requests with accurate data obtained in conformance with strict methods and quality control guidelines as specified by ISO 17025.

The chemistry laboratory is equipped with a state-of-the-art Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES) and Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) analyzers. Carbon, sulfur, oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen determinations are made with LECO analyzers.

In-house capabilities include identification of unknown metals and alloys. Most elements in the Periodic Table can be quantified. In addition, wet bench chemistry analysis services are available; these include halogen detection, pH measurements, and standard ASTM corrosion tests.
