Elemental Analysis (15 Metals by ICP)
Elemental Analysis (15 Metals by ICP) (inductively-coupled plasma) detects up to 15 elements that can be present in used coolant due to corrosion, contamination or additives. ICP will detect particulate contamination up to 10µm (microns) in size. Corrosion Metals include iron, aluminum, copper, lead, tin, silver and zinc. Contaminant Metals include calcium and magnesium. Additives include molybdate, silicate, borate, phosphate and carrier elements sodium and potassium. Elemental Analysis is instrumental in determining the corrosion taking place within a cooling system and determines both coolant and system maintenance recommendations.
Standard Test Method Used:
ppm (parts per million)
Amount of Sample Needed:
Elemental Analysis by ICP will not detect particles greater than 10µm in size.
