Troubleshooting can show what almost all materials contain
Organic and inorganic compounds, surfaces, elements and much more can be identified using the troubleshooting technology used. FT-IR, light microscopy and SEM / EDX are most common but also GC-MS, separation techniques are also used to solve the problems that processes and products encounter.
Almost all types of samples can be studied and examples of some are: Identification of compounds in solid or liquid form without sample preparation. The analyzes are both qualitative / quantitative. It is useful in connection with problem solving, complaints, support to end customers and quality control of various raw materials.
Types of samples: Pulp, paper, cardboard, scrapes, dots, rubber cloth, printed end product, solutions, oils, smears, incubators, piglets.
Various organic compounds: Polymers, biomolecules (lignins, carbohydrates, oligosaccharides, polysaccharides, cellulose, vitamins), aromatic compounds, aliphatic compounds, hydrocarbons.
Different molecular groups: Alkanes, alkenes, arenes, alkynes, arenes, esters, carboxylic acids, alcohols.
Inorganic compounds: Carbonates, carbides, organometallic, complexes, minerals, halides, sulphates.
Examples of materials: scrapes, dots, rubber cloth, printed end product, solutions, incrustations, metals.
Things to keep in mind when sending your samples:
Scrape in a jar when sampling
Do not mark too close to the defect / problem
Exposure is carried out at RISE in Örnsköldsvik
Process and functional chemicals / materials
- Good reference test to compare with problem / bad test
