SPECTRO is one of the worldwide leading suppliers of analytical instruments, employing optical emission (stationary and mobile Arc/Spark OES, ICP-OES) and X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) technology, used for the elemental analysis of materials in industry, research and academia. SPECTRO is a member of the AMETEK Materials Analysis Division.
Our instruments are used by a wide variety of industries. For example, in the metals industry SPECTROmeters are used for the analysis of ores, slags, coating thickness or precious metals. In the chemical industry raw materials, effluents, products and more have to be analyzed. In the environmental sector SPECTRO instruments are applied e.g. for soil, water, dust, airborne pollutants or ash analysis. The pharmaceutical industry relies on SPECTRO analyzers with regards to incoming and outgoing product quality control, trace metals analysis, species and isotope analysis and others. For geology applications our spectrometers are used for both field analysis and laboratory analysis, for example to determine trace elements and major constituents in ores, concentrates and tailings or to detect patterns in rare earth elements. Furthermore, SPECTRO’s analyzers are well suited for the analysis of food and animal feed — both in the laboratory and at the production line.
These are just a few examples of the many industries that SPECTRO serves. For more detailed information please visit our web site www.spectro.com
