Flattening for Spectrographic Analysis

Spectrographic Analysis

The type of chemical analysis that can be performed is dependent upon the supplied sample. Spectrographic analysis is a faster and less expensive test method, but requires sufficient sample width to cover the vacuum orifice of the spectrometer (about 3/8" diameter). We can modify a small sample to allow it to be run by OES spectrographic analysis by flattening so the "prepared" sample can cover vacuum orifice (There is an additional sample preparation charge).
