Solar Atmospheres, a provider of vacuum heat treating, brazing and other thermal-treating services, has purchased and commissioned a Hitachi FlexSEM1000 II smart scanning electron microscope (SEM). The SEM will allow Solar to meet strict requirements from customers for low-level contamination from carbon, oxygen and/or nitrogen, post heat treating. Additionally, the SEM will enable Solar to fulfill materials-characterization and microstructural-determination requests beyond basic metallography and hardness testing.

The SEM unit includes an energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy option in order to characterize the elemental composition of samples under investigation.

“SEM analysis is yet another value-added service available to our customer base,” states Mike Moyer, director of sales. “Now, not only can we help our customers develop a complex heat treatment process, but we can provide them with the analytical results to validate that process.”
