In this laboratory, using the existing equipment and devices that exist, the elemental analysis of materials with accuracy up to ppb is performed, which are explained under the relevant devices.
1. X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry
This device is used to measure different elements quantitatively and qualitatively and analyzes samples that are solid, powder, liquid, melted tablets.
2. UV-Visible Spectrophotometry
It is used to measure the elements that produce color solutions quantitatively and qualitatively.
3. Atomic Absorption Spectrometer
This device is equipped with graphite furnace system and hydride system that can analyze the elements quantitatively and qualitatively and its accuracy is up to ppb.
4. Inductively Coupled Plasma – Optical Emission Spectroscopy
ICP-OES device has the ability to measure elements quantitatively and qualitatively and has a wide range of applications in mineral analysis.
5. C/S Analyzer
This device is used to measure the elements of carbon and sulfur and its accuracy is 50 ppm for carbon and 5 ppm for sulfur.
6. Flame Photometer
This device is used to measure the concentration of elements such as sodium, calcium, barium, lithium and potassium in water.
7. Microwave Oven Digestion
Preparation and dissolution of materials for analysis under high temperature and heat, which is done quickly, is one of the applications of this device.
8. Fire Assay
In this section, precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum are extracted and graded using different furnaces, which include melting, coupling and separation steps.
9. Sample Preparation Part
Using the equipment and devices in this section, such as jaw crushers, cylinders and LM2 and LM5 powder crushers, which have the ability to pulverize the sample to about 4 kg, the sample is prepared and sent for analysis to the relevant parts.
10. Other equipment
There are a number of other equipment that can be used in this laboratory, including furnaces and ovens, sample melting machine for XRF, tablet press for XRF, autotitrator for titration, pH meter, Phoenix melting machine, distillation water machines And multiple scales and a very precise scale with an accuracy of 0.1 micrograms or 7-10 grams.
