15 Sep Optical Emission Spectroscopy
(OES PMI) can identify nearly all elements within a sample such as Carbon, Phosphorus and Sulphur amongst others, by creating a spark between the sample and an electrode. The atoms within the sample, once sparked, will emit a range of colours which are interpreted as a spectral pattern. The OES analyser can then analyse this spectral pattern to determine the levels for each element within that sample and present the results in a percentage format.
PTS offers both on site and in house Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES PMI) testing with our portable spectrometer. With probe attachments capable of analysis of all the elements that can be detected using XRF plus Carbon, Phosphorus and Sulphur.
