The EWI Materials and Lab Services teams are very excited to announce the acquisition of a Glow Discharge Spectrometer (GDS), bolstering our current chemical analysis capabilities. The GDS unit will allow EWI to perform bulk chemical analysis in-house, very quickly, and extremely accurately. Our GDS is currently calibrated for low alloy steels, stainless steels, nickel based alloys, aluminum alloys, and titanium alloys; other calibrations can be added as required. Further details on the capabilities of the GDS unit can be found on the LECO website. As a quick reference, check out this simple animation of the LECO Glow Discharge Spectrometer in operation. If you have any questions about the new GDS unit, or would like to have a sample analyzed, please contact Morgan Gallagher by phone at 614-688-5134, or by email at [email protected].
