Always present in steel, inclusions are often undesirable, because of deleterious effects on the properties of the steel and the running of the manufacturing process, and considerable costs that this entails for the steelworks. The effects can, for example, lead to failure of the end product, which is especially critical when steel is used in buildings, infrastructure, cars, airplanes and many other objects where safety is paramount.
For more than 20 years, Thermo Fisher Scientific has been leader in ultra-fast analysis of nonmetallic micro-inclusions by spark OES. Today, the Thermo Scientific Spark-DAT inclusion analysis is used, combined with the elemental analysis, by many leading steel companies. Thanks to latest developments, it enjoys growing popularity throughout the steel community, and it contributes to the success of the Thermo Scientific ARL iSpark OES spectrometer.
Let's take a look at 10 reasons why it is so.
