Geotrack has been providing a high quality Materials
Analysis service using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Electron
Microprobe (EMP) for over eight years from its offices and laboratory
in West Brunswick. We have over 20 years in X-Ray analysis and offer
technical advice on other analytical methods and can subcontract to
a network of reliable laboratories. This service has applications
in Steel Analysis, Forensics, Corrosion and Wear Product Identification,
Advertising, Quality Control and more.

for Steel Analysis and Metallurgical Troubleshooting
fully automated Jeol JXA-5A electron microprobe equipped with 3 WDS
spectrometers is used for quantitative analysis. The unit has a computer
controlled x-y-z stage system allowing off site analysis position information
to be transferred, ensuring minimum machine time charges. Systems can
be developed (mostly at no charge to the client) for the quantitative
analysis of most materials against a comprehensive suite of international
standards for optimum accuracy. Precision can be tailored to client
requirements within equipment limits. Our Operations Manager, Pat Kelly
has more than 20 years direct experience running, maintaining and using
electron beam equipment ensuring a high quality result every time.

for Corrosion and Wear Product Identification, Manufacturing Quality
Control or Defect Analysis
Material identification by semi-quantitative
X-ray analysis is performed with our Jeol JSM 35 scanning electron microscope
equipped with a Kevex EDS system and Canberra S100 multichannel analyser.
A typical diagnostic X-ray spectrum can be collected in less than 30
seconds, providing very cost effective identification of minerals, steels
and alloys. A WDS spectrometer allows quantitative analysis of a variety
of elements if required.
High quality digital images using the
Image Slave are standard and can be e-mailed to your office if required.
Our SEM equipment can normally be made available on short notice, to
suit your immediate requirements.

Analyses are performed
by Semi-Quantitative (SEM) or Quantitative X-Ray analysis and are enhanced
by Digital Imaging of sample. Results can be available by e-mail
as soon as the analysis is complete.
