Powder characterization

Production-related and process-oriented analyses – such as particle/grain size distribution using laser diffraction or BET measurement – enable our customers, including those from the 3D printing sector, to increase quality and yield.

Powder characterization department

Scanning electron microscopy

On the one hand, our service supports the R&D activities of our customers, such as battery cell analysis for electromobility, based on state-of-the-art techniques for SEM/EDX analysis. It also includes damage analysis to deduce reasons for complaints.

Scanning electron microscopy department

Hard-metal laboratory

A highly customer-oriented service that supports our customers in many application-related analyses.

Carbide laboratory department

Gamma spectrometry

We offer our customers an analysis of raw materials and waste as the basis for the corresponding disposal certificate with regard to natural radioactivity.

From the sample to a flawless result

It takes three hours (or up to a maximum of 14 days) to analyze a sample, depending on the degree of complexity. The ChemiLytics portfolio covers a unique analytical spectrum. Typical samples include tungsten, tantalum and niobium ores, powder and scrap from refractory metals and samples from the recycling sector.

All over Europe / the world? Unique range of services and equipment

The ChemiLytics portfolio covers a unique analytical spectrum. Our cutting-edge methods are employed wherever there are high purity and quality requirements, for example in 3D printing or the manufacture of ultra-pure materials.

For comparable results – all from a single source

Our monitoring and process-engineering analysis enables us to support partners in diverse markets such as production, recycling and environmental monitoring. We offer complex, multi-step analysis from a single source, which saves our customers from having to ship samples multiple times and consolidate results from different sources.
