Solar Atmospheres Adds Inhouse Metallographic TestingMarch 12, 2020
Solar Atmospheres of Western PA (SAWPA), Hermitage, PA, has introduced inhouse metallographic testing, thanks to the purchase of a Zeiss AxioVert A1 inverted materials microscope, with an accompanying Axiocam digital camera and Zen Core materials-analysis software. The system allows for reflected bright-field, dark-field, polarized and circular contrasting techniques, along with a 50x to 1000x magnification range. The digital camera and materials-analysis software provides automated determination of material grain size, traditionally time-consuming and labor-intensive processes, to optimize repeatability and efficiency.
The new testing setup will allow SAWPA to perform surface-contamination, grain-size, and intergranular attack/intergranular oxidation determinations inhouse, providing customers with expedited lead times and a single-source vendor capable of meeting all heattreat and testing needs; www.solaratm.com.
