Perfect operating safety, complete protection from harmful factors exposure 

Sample Preparation

There is no need in sample preparation in case of analysis of solid ог monolithic materials (metals, alloys, glasses, ceramics, etc.) Sometimes flat area of а sample surface is required When analyzing а transparent sample (glass, crystal) the analyzed area must be additionally polished For powdery sample analysis (refractory components, slags, concentrates, sands, ashes, etc.) the materials must bе grinded and then pressed into pellets. Powdery sample preparation takes about 10-20 minutes. 100 mg of а sample material is required for the pellet preparation

No need in sample preparation in case of solid or monolithic materials analysis (metals, alloys, glasses, ceramics)
