Analysis Laboratory

The analysis lab is the feather in Cabro's cap, where traditional longstanding methods meet the most sophisticated top-level machinery.

Two methods of analysis are currently in use: cupellation – the time-honored gravimetric analysis of high AU content alloys – and instrumental analysis – for metal cations and anions.

Cabro Spa laboratory instruments include:

- AA and ICP-OES Spectrometer for the quantitative determination of metal ions in solution;

- X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer for the analytical determination of fluorescence light emissions from a sample exposed to X-rays on metal alloys;

- UV Spectrophotometer, for the quantitative measurement of the fraction of light that passes through a reference solution;

- IC Ion Chromatography, that separates anions and cations in fluids;

- Potentiometer, for automatic titration of solutions.

- Rotational viscosimeters (for liquid and paste): used to measure the viscosity of liquids and pastes.

- Rheometer: used to analyze the rheological behavior of pastes.

- Jolting Volumeter: used to determine the volume and apparent weight of powders and granular materials.

- Pyknometer: used to determine the density of a material.

- Particle Size Analyzer: used to determine the particle size of powders and pastes.

- Profilometers: used to analyze a surface roughness and particularly the thickness of a conductive film after firing.

- Optical microscopes: used for the observation and analysis of varied samples passed through by light.

- Scanning electron microscope (SEM) with X-Ray detector: used for the analysis of varied samples with a resolution of about 100 nm. The X-Ray detector enables the elemental microanalysis of the samples examined by SEM.

- Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA) and Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC): used for the thermal analysis of liquid or solid samples.

- Multimeter: used to determine the electrical resistance of a circuit.

Cabro’s lab can supervise all production phases and certify the final product and can also carry out external analysis on behalf of third parties.
