Raw Material, Intermediate & Finish Product Properties Analysis Test
To date, mankind is still heavily dependent on the use of petroleum, coals, metal ores for energy generation and as raw material for the manufacturing industries. As they are non-renewable, the days for these natural resources to exhaust are numbered. Thus, harvesting heavily used materials from industrial waste often as sub-grade replacement is one of the ways to slow down the depletion of these natural resources.
Eurofins Malaysia offers testing services not only for the natural resources, intermediate and finish products but also for their recycled materials. Petroleum products such as lubricating oil, industrial oil, and fuel oil are generally analyzed for the confirmation of their properties and quality. However, recovered waste oil, such as that obtained from the pyrolysis of waste tyres, is tested both for its properties and also for the declaration to the Department of Environment (DOE) on the presence of hazardous substances.
Metal is one of the heavily used materials by human being due to their properties versatility, high process ability and the richness of sources from the blessings of our mother earth. As a testing laboratory that serves wide spectrum of customers in the metals, ores and metals recycling industries, Eurofins Malaysia provides assay testing services to all in needs.
We serve metals manufacturers, metals traders and buyers nationwide, whether it is for routine monitoring or confirmation of metal grades compliance. These were done through chemical compositions and mechanical properties analysis. We are able to handle samples in various forms such as ingots, slabs, bars, wires and also finished products. Besides high purity metals and alloyed metals, we also determine solder assays for solders manufacturers as well as users from electronic industries on routine basis.
Eurofins Malaysia is experienced in the analysis of iron ores and exploratory metal ore samples from potential mining areas for Iron (Fe), Gold (Au), Silver (Ag), Platinum (Pt) and Palladium (Pd) etc. To cater for the special needs of the ores samples, we are equipped with crushing machine and sampling jigs for sample homogenization prior to assay testing.
Metal recycling involved the purchase of waste from various industries. This was followed by a series of extraction processes before it can be reused as a renewed source. For our customers from the recycling industries, Eurofins Malaysia plays the role of a third party laboratory to provide accurate results in timely manner. Our services include the analysis of precious metals in scraps prior to trading activities as well as the determination of the purity of extracted metal before selling off. Commonly tested precious metals are gold (Au), silver (Ag), platinum (Pt) and palladium (Pd).
Services span the full range of chemical, performance, mechanical and physical properties testing, including:
- Materials identification, characterization, and structural analysis
- Raw material, intermediate & finish products properties testing
- Environmental and durability testing
- Microscopic analysis
- Elemental composition analysis
- Physical properties analysis
- Chemical properties analysis
- Mechanical properties analysis
Eurofins Malaysia has a team of experienced chemists on ores and metals analysis, a suitable laboratory setup and well-equipped with instruments such as ICP-AES (Inductively-Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectroscopy), AAS (Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy) and Optical Emission Spectrometry for metal analysis. Please don’t hesitate to contact our team of consulting chemists for technical assistance if need arises for we are keen to help you to dig into the facts from the ground upwards.
