Analytical Lab Testing Services

The Analytical Laboratory at B&W MEGTEC is capable of handling a variety of testing and analytical requests. Standard testing includes:

  • Catalyst Performance – Many B&W MEGTEC customers are required by permit to have their catalyst analyzed on a routine basis.
  • BET Surface Area – Used in surface science for the calculation of surface areas of solids by physical adsorption of gas molecules. It is performed in conjunction with catalyst performance as a means for measuring catalyst condition.
  • Bake-outs and Particulate Characterization – Done primarily for RTO sizing and ceramic media trouble shooting.
  • Graphic Arts Ink Oil Content and Characterization – Performed for dryer sizing and troubleshooting if customers experience inadequate drying, smoking or condensation issues.

In addition, samples may be prepared here for further testing by our analytical partners via PIXE (Proton Induced X-Ray Emission), ICP (Inductively Coupled Plasma) and XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence).
