Spark Testing (Field Spectroscopy)


Mobile metal analysers have been used for over 30 years in the oil and gas industry. Enreach has a crew specialized in field Spark Testing to classify ferrous metals for quality control and material testing. Our procedure uses a quick and efficient process using a handheld spectrometer with an electric arc or spark and optical emission to test the metallurgy of metal alloys assuring that the steel matches our weld procedures. Our portable instrument is designed to analyse the distinctive wavelength signature of the metal giving a laboratory like analysis of special materials.


Our testing does not require argon or a radioactive source and has the ability to identify and analyse iron, nickel, titanium, aluminum, copper and cobalt metals and detect carbon in low allow steel from 1000 ppm.


As well we have software that enables sorting, grade identification and grade verification as well as the elemental composition.
