Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS)

The answer for metals or minerals identification in compounds or trace element analysis (e.g., metals, soil, waste or water drinking, bodily fluids,minerals, all sorts of chemical compounds etc) is Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) in the field of Analytical Chemistry. The element analysis can be qualitative (determining what elements are present), and it can be quantitative […]

Thermal Shock: Rapid Cooling & Heating

What if an aerospace O-rings is not properly tested for cycle of extreme cold & Heat (Thermal shock)? In history,  That cold rubber became stiff, failing to fully seal the joint and caused the NASA’s space shuttle Challenger tragedy that killed seven astronauts on Jan. 28, 1986 Thermal shock refers to fluctuation in temperature which […]

Metallographic Sample Preparation (Major Steps)

“Quality control for metals & alloys are critical to ensure structure integrity and reliability for the manufacturing use and consumer application…”     Benefits of Metallographic Sample Preparation:   Analysing the microstructure of the physical structure and components material (with microscopy). Determine if the material has been made/processed correctly Discovering why a material’s quality passed or failed during application & […]

The Importance of Calibration Traceability

The Importance of Calibration Traceability “A calibration performed on an instrument, can become pointless if it cannot be traced to a known reference / standard.” Traceability is defined by the measuring result and whether its value can be compared and related to a working standard or reference. This can be done through a referring to an […]
