Non-Destructive Testing Services

Many laboratory tests consume some or all of the sample provided during the testing process, but in certain cases it is imperative to the client that their sample be preserved, whether because the material is being used in litigation or because only a very limited sample exists.

Element has specialized equipment and techniques that make it possible for us to preserve most or all of a sample when non-destructive testing (NDT) is required. Non-destructive testing has more limitations than more traditional testing methods, but in cases where preserving the sample is crucial, it is a vitally important process. Element can provide these specialized testing services as well as advise clients on what to expect from non-destructive testing.

Analytical techniques Element uses in sample preservation testing include:

  • Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
  • RAMAN Spectroscopy
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
  • Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDS)
  • X-Ray Diffraction (XRD)
  • Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
  • Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)

With many of these techniques, a small amount of the sample will be consumed, but they are especially ideal for situations where a very limited amount of the sample is available. For situations where no amount of the sample can be destroyed, Element can consult with clients individually about how to preserve the sample and attain the necessary information through sophisticated analysis.
