LECO Combustion

leco combustion
ATS generally uses LECO instrumentation to analyze samples that are geometrically small.

Small pieces of metal samples that cannot be “sparked” on a spectrograph due to size constraints can be analyzed by LECO combustion.

Combustion testing is a technique used to precisely determine the content of carbon, sulfur, nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen in metals and alloys. Fundamentally, this process involves burning of the sample to release these specific elements. Values received for element percentages are compared to standards to conclude the metal type. ATS predominately performs this analysis on steel samples in addition to iron, nickel, titanium, and cobalt alloys. Testing is performed in accordance with ASTM E1019 as a guide.

Common LECO Combustion Analysis Include:
  • Carbon
  • Sulfur
  • Nitrogen
  • Oxygen
  • Hydrogen
  • Reactive Materials
  • Refractions
  • Ferrous and Non Ferrous

ATS's quality assurance program meets the most stringent industry requirements, including ISO 9001 certification and our laboratory is ISO 17025 (A2LA) accredited
